Mile stone Post
Hand made from locally sourced Oak in Devon, my 140cm Oak post can be personalised by you. It looks great with names, favourite places or even a special date.
I make the Oak posts in my workshop in Devon so I can always guarantee high quality and great communication as I build each order. I keep every customer updated with progress photos and help them design their perfect Oak post.
Choose between "Rustic" which is a darker more characterful oak, or "light oak" which is a smarter lighter style.
Each Oak post is 140cm tall, send me a message for bespoke sizes.
With every purchase I plant a native British species of tree in Devon.

I suggest sinking 1 foot into the soil in either cement or compacted soil.
House signs: The mile post can be used as a fantastic alternative to the normal house signs, which will really stand out in the drive way or garden. You can have the post engraved with one letter below the other or running sideways along the oak post.
Wedding anniversary: Perfect present for the 5th wedding anniversary, personalise it with a date of the wedding, birth or even where you met. Anniversary memorial garden posts.
Long lasting: The naturally strong and resistant Oak is cut with a 45 degrees angle on the top and then sanded smooth. This allows for weather to simply run off it causing it to last for many years.
Finish: As standard the post is finished with an oil that soaks into the wood preserving it, however if you would like a varnished finish then please specify as an email with the order. If varnished then it is recommended to apply a coat of varnish once a year to keep its smart look.
Green Oak: This post is made from Local English oak which has not been seasoned. Therefore cracks and splits can occur, this adds to its individual character and has little to no impact on the products life expectancy or strength. The oak will also naturally weather towards a silvery grey colour, to stop this simply keep a healthy layer of varnish applied to it at least once a year.
Handmade and hand finished in Devon England. Everything that goes into my mile stone posts is either locally bought or made by myself. And I’m sure you’ll enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed making it.
Extra Options to let me know about: As standard the post is finished with an oil that soaks into the wood preserving it, however if you would like a varnished finish then please specify as an email with the order.
If you would like the writing to be engraved sideways running down the post then please specify.
Extra characters and length can be added, but please let me know as I might not have long enough Oak posts, or might have to charge a little extra.
