Family This Way

Your loved ones may be scattered across the globe, but this personalized signpost finds a charming way to keep them all in one place. Hand painted to create a warmly weathered finish, each signpost is topped with your family name, followed by up to five arrows showcasing each member's distance and direction from your official homestead. The arrows are plasma cut by Chris Crooks and positioned slightly askew to create a classic look, and an oxidized steel finish develops a lovely patina over time while offering weather-resistant appeal. The result is a colorful statement for your yard or garden that keeps your family close. Made in Tuscon, Arizona.

Custom options:
Top sign: Your family name
Arrows: Family member names (and their distance from your home) and the direction of the arrow, pointing east or west.

“I started out from my garage. As the business grew, and my wife’s and neighbors' patience stretched, it was time to move to an industrial space. There I can bang and grind at all hours of the night. It's 1,000 square feet of pure metalworking nirvana.”

Chris Crooks has taken a somewhat winding road to get to where is now—creating imaginative lawn sculptures inspired by the southwest landscape he calls home. After graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Chris worked in advertising, then ran a printing business with his wife, while painting during his free time.



It was when the couple moved to Tucson for a change of scenery that Chris collaborated with a metal art manufacturer and fell in love with the art form. Eventually, he began designing and making his first metal sculpture collection from his studio nestled in the foothills of the Santa Rita mountains, just outside Tucson.

“I always wanted to make a living doing something genuinely enjoyable,” he says. “To get up in the morning raring to go, and never having enough time to do everything you want to do.”

          Was looking for a cool present for my parents due to birthdays and buying a new house. This was a perfect gift to be placed in their front yard by the driveway. All guests that go over see it and love it.

            My mother was tickled to have a signpost outside her kitchen window reminding her of all her children! It looks great in her garden. She keeps saying how unusual and interesting a gift it was!

              I love this piece! Obviously hand-made and unique, quality workmanship. Looks great with the sun setting behind it in the garden. It could be a little taller - only 6 feet - but that's the ONLY con. It makes me smile every day. Thank you!

              Comments about UncommonGoods Personalized Family Member Signpost:

              Although this wasn't a gift, per se, I wanted to surprise my husband with it for our yard because we just purchased a new home, and I wanted something unique to make it ours. The previous owners had the majority of the lawn covered in cement sculptures all over the place, and it took a long time to change what our yard looked like. Let's just say the neighbors are loving our lawn now. :-)

              So anyway, thank goodness my husband loves it as much as I do. I put it together right away, which was easy to do, and we put the sign at the front corner end of our yard for all to see when they come up the street (we have a corner lot). I even posted a photo on Facebook, and got many likes and comments stating it was a great idea. We had our name, and then added plates for each set of parents and then a plate for my sister's family and my husband's sister's family. All had the miles away on it.

              We couldn't be happier with the end result!

                I loved this sign from the moment I saw it on your website! My husband and I had made a sign with a similar idea but different design many years ago when we were still dating. I knew this would knock his socks off! He absolutely loved it, and truly WAS surprised with such a special gift. I put a photo of it on my Facebook wall and it was "Liked" or commented on 83 times in less then 2 days-- obviously a hit!
                The craftsmanship is wonderful! Clearly care and skill were used in making this. Even the screws used to attach each sign to the post are individually painted to match that sign's paint color! I assembled it easily. It arrived sooner than predicted, on my husband's actual birthday! Would definitely buy again, and have wholeheartedly recommended it already. Thank you to creator Chris Crooks!

                      This looked great in the picture on Uncommon Goods. It looks just as good in my yard. I love it. It is unique and sentimental at the same time. I put it together by myself and put it in the ground by myself. I even took pictures of it to send it to my kids so they can see how I will be reminded of them (as if I needed this to do that) every time I look out my front door or I am working in my front yard. Love it!

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Arrived in perfect condition. Clear, easy instructions on how to put it together.
