Featured Project: Nothing Says Lumber Yard Like a Sign Made of Wood


Ron Kemmel of Kemmel Design LLC created this sign for Lumber Sales & Products in Jackson, Wisconsin, not far from Kewaskum, Wisconsin, where Kemmel Design has been based for nearly three decades.

The sign is made of rough-sawn cedar, he says.

“For the frame work of the structure we started with 8” x 8” cedar posts,” says Kemmel. “The oversize is 13’ x 13’ single-sided. Every aspect was designed and built by hand. The sign panels are digitally printed on 3M material, printed on a Roland. The pieces are finished with matte laminate. The sign panels are stepped off 2” for added depth. The sign was then finished with an exterior stain. Brushed aluminum address letters were installed for the final touch.”
