A little while back we received a custom order for a personalized wooden lawn sign.
We jumped at the opportunity to make this wonderful gift for an awesome family friend!
The lawn sign is designed to be mounted on stakes, as well as on a wall or door.
Our first step is to determine the size required and/or desired.
Then we cut the boards to size. We chose weather treated pine, measuring approximately 4″ longer than anticipated in each side.
We use a signmaker template like the Rockler Interlock State Park Font Sign Kit. We use the 2-1/4″ version.
After routing the letters on both sides, we cut the piece to the exact dimensions requested. Thismeans we have to trim the length and/or width. We’ve added 45-degree miters at the edge of this version.
Then we sand and stain the piece. We find that adding a two tone helps the words stick out a lot better.
Thats pretty much it!
If you don’t have access to a router, you may purchase a board at your local hardware/lumberyard, and paint the letters instead.
