choose the font you want on your computer. You can print it out on an 8 1/2” x 11” paper.
then glue it on your wood ( with elmer’s glue) and then poly it ( 2 or 3 coats)

Our sign is about 5” x 3” ...printed out on a piece of parchment paper.

hint, if you go to a print shop they may have some open packages
of good quality paper...ask them to sell you just a few pieces. It should
only cost a few pennies a piece.

This is one we made for our kindling box. I used thin wood, but you
can use any thickness you want.

BTW ...we call our shop “Splinkers” I have been meaning to do
one for our shop...”Splinters, Enter at your own Risk.”

Everything you post is so unique and quaint Two Knots. I like your style.

Re: DIY Sign?

Quickest I can think of that's somewhat creative: chalkboard, colored chalk
