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

Re: DIY Sign?


Yeah, I know I started this post in January. Sometimes things move slowly in my shop. But, if anybody cares, I think I really found something that scratches my itch of how to make a DIY sign.

Re: DIY Sign?


When I took down the Christmas tree last year, I took a slice of the trunk and wrote the year on it and saved it as a memento. It's kind of cool just because of what it is, but it doesn't look like much. This year, I'm going to do the same thing, but I'm going to stick our family Christmas picture on there. I think that could come out real nice. Maybe use it as an ornament next year.
