CNCROi.com can make custom pine door signs, corian house number indicators and even unique corporate awards and plaques. Today, we’ll make a simple pine door sign with the words “Nemo vir est qui mundum non reddat meliorem” on it, which translates to “No one is a man who would not give the world back better.”
In the case of this custom pine door sign, we used laminated pine board which gave it a bit more strength over using standard solid planks, which is still solid pine through on through.
There was no paint added to the sign, only a light finish on the surface to protect it as it’s going up onto a doorway, not into a harsh outdoor environment with wild yearly temperature and humidity variations.
There are endless possibilities when it comes to custom pine door sign, in both material and style.
As CNCROi.com makes everything to spec, every aspect of the door sign can be customized, for instance, if you want it made out of a live edge wood plank along with a picture, basswood in this case, no problem!
The level of detail, creativity and finish possibilities when it comes to making custom door signs is literally endless and yes, most of our production is complete within 24 hours if we have the material in stock.
The design is completely up to you, and we make a digital version for your review before any work starts, and with larger production runs, CNCROi.com also makes a prototype so expectations are clear from the get-go.
Making a custom pine door sign is pretty straight forward, we establish the budget, size, shape, material and then create a digital file for approval (if you aren’t a designer yourself). After that, CNCROi.com goes right into production!
The process is almost identical whether it’s a custom corporate plaque, unique desktop awards or even a “simple” custom cake topper regardless of size, material or design preferences.
When I started CNCROi.com, my goal was to make custom EASY and straight forward.
I fully realized that this is probably the first time you’ve gone down the route of getting something made to your spec, even if it was a one-off, so we take things one step at a time until we have things sorted, this custom pine door sign is no different.

As you saw from the above custom cottage wood sign in the shape of a fish, there is more than one way to burn wood and form it to make anything imaginable!

I hope that this helps explain a bit more about what we can do for you, you may see a simple custom pine door sign in this blog post, but the attention to detail and focus is the same regardless of what we are working on.
Now that this custom pine door sign is finished being custom CNC laser engraved, it’s time to switch gears and cut it out of the 3/4″ pine laminate which is the same material we used for a number of custom projects here in the shop, big and small.
CNCROi.com can cut designs out as simple or intricate as you want, and that’s why we need to get an idea of your budget at the start so we can optimize things across a range of capabilities to give you the biggest bang for your buck.
Our CNC laser is amazing, we can do both metal and wood work in it but something unique to wood and lamacoids is that it makes fire.
A laser is just a highly focused beam of energy, it cuts through anything and vaporizes it instantly with all that smoke being extracted from the machine before it has time to combust.
How did CNCROi.com become so good across a huge range of wood species we have available?
We do testing, lots of testing!
We have over two dozen wood species that we work with in the shop, from live edge through engineered.
Although this custom pine door sign was made out of “pine”, it could have just as easily been red cedar, spruce, walnut, mahogany or whatever you have a budget for.
Where CNCROi.com excels in is custom, that’s our focus, that’s what we do day in and out and that’s why our customers come to us again and again for projects.
The diversity of materials, expertise and production processes allows us to have the best equipment in the shop to handle the projects you need done.
Now that this custom pine door sign is being cut out of the pine, we can talk a bit about the options when it comes to that front.
In this case, it’s a simple cut out where the text is centered and the cut is a straight 45 degrees at the corners, that could have been absolutely anything you wanted, from custom fretwork to circular, triangular or even a custom shape.
For instance, this custom pine door sign could have been cut out like this holiday ornament then sand blasted for clean-up.
There is always give and take that you need to keep into consideration, if the custom pine door sign being featured in this blog post was cut like the video above and fell, it would break.
Just something to consider, custom means that we use our collective experience to “imagine” the best and worse case scenario for what we do and then from there, figure out what works for the environment it will be found in.
The custom pine door sign is now finished, it’s been custom laser engraved with the quote and laser cut out of the laminated pine board.
All that’s left to do now is lift the “scrap” (we’ll keep it for future production) and see what the edge quality looks like.
The edge came out great, the nice bonus about wood is that the edge is generally a dark brown, like charcoal, which works great with pine because the face is so light, then the laser engraves a mid-range of the two into the wood.
This makes for a custom pine door sign that looks great in just about any environment regardless of context or background it finds itself in.
We did mask the back, you can see the smoke grid pattern from our table that’s made while it was being cut out of the laminated pine sheet.
It’s easily removed.
The back of the sign looks fine, just a light sanding is required while if we left the back unwrapped, removing all that smoke and sticky resin would be quite a task.
It’s now time to sand off the front, removing the smoke and resin deposits from the custom pine door sign to give it even more contrast and beauty.
There are a lot of ways to accomplish this, but the easiest involves a custom downdraft table hooked-up to our industrial dust collection system and a palm sander to do a quick job of it all.
If you are wondering where that awesome custom downdraft table came from, I designed it for the shop and cut it out using the same machine making this custom pine door sign. Watch the video!
CNCROi.com has a huge variety of capabilities, each one helps the next to produce great work for our customers.
Now that the sanding of the custom pine door sign is complete, you can see how wonderful it looks, the letters are sharp and precise.
Additionally, as this is engraved into the wood, not printed or vinyl layed over it, the engraving will last as long as the wood, it will not fade, crack or peel off.
Another look at this custom pine door sign after it has been sprayed with a protective mist which makes the colors of the natural pine wood come out even better with more contrast.
And yes, our custom downdraft table also doubles as a regular table too when the requirement comes-up.
This sign will find a proud home in one of our clients door archways, “Nemo vir est qui mundum non reddat meliorem” never looked so great!
