Home Lonborg Woodcarving Web  Design Gallery


WELCOME! To my web site my name is Nicholas Lonborg. I have been woodcarving  and woodworking for over 20 years. Over the span of these years I have had the pleasure to work with many wonderful people; creating quarterboards, architectural installations, sculptural artwork, one of a kind woodcarvings, and unique signs. 



A Lonborg sign whether it be a quarterboard or a tavern sign is hand-crafted from top to bottom.  No routers, no laser cutters, no power tools except a band saw to cut out the wood blanks.  Letters are incised or carved with a single utility knife; relief carving is done with chisels and gouges.  Painting (all five coats) is by brush; gilding is 23k gold leaf applied in the old style.  The result is a classically elegant work of art that adds immeasurably to the overall impression of the place where it is hung.  I am dedicated to fine design.  First-class execution, and your satisfaction. With your ideas and my creative talent we can shape something timelessly wonderful that you and generations will enjoy and take pride in. I look forward to working with you.
