Nantucket Quarterboads and Business Signs
CARVING TODAY'S HEIRLOOMS -
PRESERVING YESTERDAY'S HISTORY
Providing high quality quarter boards and signs to meet your personal and business needs.
Formerly - Nantucket Carving and Folk Art
Specializing in custom wood-carved quarterboards, house numbers, and commercial signs. We are continuing to serve the Cape and Islands with quality work as we have for the last 20 years.
Providing unequaled service and satisfaction our customers have come to know and rely on. We work first hand with our clients to transform their ideas into reality.
Because of our passion for this art form, we do not use a cnc machine. This allows us the ability to create a one of a kind piece of art that reflects our customers vision, while preserving the tradition of wood carved quarter boards.
Custom designed quarterboard toppers and ends, as well as a business logo, will add a personalized touch to your project
These traditional handcrafted quarterboards are carved into Native Eastern White Pine and finished with 3 coats of oil base enamel in a color of your choosing to set each one apart with its own unique character. Once used to identify early sailing ships, the quarterboard is now a distinctive decor which adorns many homes in New England.
Each quarterboard is custom designed to the client's specifications.
