    Hi and happy summer to you all, as if, I’ve still got the heating on!

    Anyway I’ve got a large sign to make for a pub and I’m wanting to use hardwood framing around a Dibond sign to make it look traditional, I may also put a ply backing board behind to make sure the board is supported properly.
    But I’m having trouble sourcing suitable ready routed hardwood framing.

    this will probably need something a bit chunkier as the sign is going to be 1500 x 1700 + frame.

    So are there any suppliers recommended or do I need to get this made?

    Thanks George, another option to consider.

    You must have a joinery workshop somewhere near you, in years gone by Yellow Pages was the way to find someone.
    A half decent joiners will be able to run practically any timber you want through a spindle moulder and produce a traditional profile.

    Your right Steve, but it’s cheaper getting some ready made, plus getting a joiner around here to do anything resonably quickly is like getting blood from a stone.
