I have made many signs, even signs I'd had pieced together with scrap wood, but this was a true - tear a pallet apart and use the wood - kind of sign! It was exciting!
Can I say, what a pain it was though!? Ha! I could get the nails or staples out so I pulled out the jigsaw and just cut pieces off. It seemed to work just fine, unless you are wanting longer pieces for bigger signs.
I wanted a sign for my porch so I stenciled "Life is better on the porch" onto the wood and it turned out just darling! I have more wood and need to make some more sign!
To see the steps I used to make this sign see the video below.
