Here is a sign from City Gate Church in Lebanon, Ohio. As you can see, the wood on the old sign had aged poorly and looked dirty, and could even be perceived as uninviting. In the following two pictures, you can see the new cedar that brings the sign to life. It has a natural, warm, and inviting look that is uniquely cedar. If you’ve worked with cedar before, then you know that this will weather and age in a way that enhances the natural beauty.
