Boone Wood-De-Signs is the custom woodcarving & sign business to take care of all your business identity needs. Whether corporate-identity logos, interior wall carvings or beautiful hand carved gold leaf signage in front of your office or building, Clay Boone provides the most striking presentation for your business and uses the highest quality materials to assure your unique identity remains fresh and exciting for many years.

With a long lineage steeped in tradition and 35 years professional experience as a wood-carver & signage specialist, Clay has carefully and quietly built a reputation for uncompromising craftsmanship. Each customer leaves the shop with a treasured work of art and an heirloom to pass down to future generations.

Boone's work is best known for its artistry. Hand hewn logos, graphics and letters are carved into the wood to create a beauty and depth that cannot be achieved with a merely "painted" sign.

The sign in front of your building is the most important means of advertising the quality of your business and the Boone company makes it their personal responsibility to create signage that leaves no doubt your customers are approaching an establishment truly worthy of their patronage.
Only solid woods are used...never composite woods or sign foam. "We love the quality of wood." Different woods have grain characteristics that lend themselves favorably to different jobs. Some of the woods used to carefully match materials and project are: Bass, Butternut, Black Walnut, Mahogany, Redwood, Sugar Pine, Teak, White Pine, Oak and Cedar.

For gold leaf signs only 23K German or Italian gold leaf is used due to its outstanding durability and resistance to weathering. True gold leaf is far superior to outside "gold" paint and is therefore cost effective over the life span of a sign...while adding a sparkle that paint only approximates.

Clay strongly encourages stain and varnish for your sign to bring out the natural characteristics and beauty of the wood. Upon request, however, your carved sign will be painted by using only the best exterior oil base sign paint such as "Ronan" or "One Shot."
