A standard sand carved or “sandblasted” sign is hand crafted by a professional sign maker. The typical woods used are redwood, cedar, and sometimes balsa. These woods are the traditional choices due to their high resistance to decay. The other type of material utilized for sand carved signs is HDU (High Density Urethane) which has been a popular alternative due to its excellent stability, and the fact that it is impervious to decay.
