What Kind Of Wood To Use Outdoors

To make the sign, we used MDO plywood . Its a plywood that is safe for outdoor use and water resistant. Its mostly used for outdoor commercial signs and siding or garage panels.

However, it can be difficult to find and may need to be ordered at a local building supply company. Other options for outdoor wood signs are pine, outdoor fencing, pvc panels, and marine plywood. Do not use red oak, regular plywood, mdf or other porous wood surfaces that are prone to rot.

How To Build An Outdoor Sign

I have included a printable step by step card at the bottom of this post, but added some tips and how I completed our project in this section.

  • Cut the wood to size. In my case, I painted the sign black, let it dry, and then added a stencil to get the right shape for my cut. This particular template was designed and made using a Cricut Machine. Then we cut it out using a jig saw and a lot of patience.
  • 2. Prep. Sand the edges from the cuts and, if needed, sand the top layer of the board lightly to get the best bond. Plywood generally doesnt need to be sanded.

    3. Paint. On the stencil, I used both gold and white exterior paint to bring in different elements. With outdoor projects, I recommend sealing or painting the entire surface. If you dont want to paint the entire surface, you can seal with an outdoor polyurethane.

    4. Hang the sign. I found these porch columns at Lowes for $47. We used a large drill bit and hand chisels to create the hole for a pvc board be anchored across the top. Lastly, we attached the top with some eyelets and carabiners like these.

    I have also made these types of signs to hang on mailboxes for classy house numbers or a last name and they look great.

    5. Anchor in the ground. I dont plan to have this post up year round, so we found a deep post spike and drove it in the ground. The top anchors the post nicely but we can take the post down any time we want!

    And here is how the sign turned out

    Pretty Spooky-Awesome, right?!

    This Is The Life Metal Patio Sign

    Another reclaimed wood sign made with our Flat Metal Wall Letters that says, this is the life.

    This custom reclaimed wood sign was designed in house and hung above an outdoor fireplace at the Parade of Homes here in Boise, Idaho.

    Our shop made the rustic reclaimed wood backer and our assembly team added Flat Metal Wall Letters that say, this is the life complete with mounting holes, nails and spacers to really bring the sign to life.

    The black metal letters really contrast from the lighter wood and create a welcoming and cozy patio setting.
