What is the best wood to make an outdoor sign? – How To Make Money In My Woodworking Shop

Why? Where can wood go for good use? Which wood to choose? What is it made from? How much does it cost? How can I find the best deal? How do I make a DIY sign?

I used to be a woodworker. I also had to teach myself how to sell/shop for wood. At some point I realized I could learn about wood from others. They are living proof of the benefits of working with wood.

These woodworking lessons have taught me more about wood cutting and using a saw than I could ever learn from my father’s woodworking books.

So we make signs and books for local events too (my brother and I recently made a sign that will make a good souvenir for the upcoming visit to Mexico). Woodworking is great business and it’s always fun to see people enjoying the products we make.

If you’ve always wanted to make a sign, maybe a DIY one of your own to show off to friends, family, or neighbors, this will help you along the way.

1 – How Many Signs Do You Sell?

Once you do some research and make some choices that work best for you, just choose your favorite wood, how to cut, what you should use, where to find it, and you will have the best signs on the market.

2 – Wood Cutting Instructions

All the instructions given in these videos are from my shop. You can get a copy of the entire library on my website here.

3 – Using a Saw, Stave and Hand Tools

The best sign is built with materials that make it easy to make a beautiful design and are easy to use. This list includes:

Fruit and nut trees.


Sealing wax.

Lamps and incandescent bulbs.




4 – How to Make a Sign You Like

As a beginner, don’t worry because a well-made sign will only take some practice to learn and improve.

My advice is: Start with something basic. Something that will hold up to the rigors that can come with outdoor signage.

If you only have a small sign that you have made you will probably spend more time practicing. If you build a great sign you can always buy a new sign for less.

A really nice sign will take about 6 months to a year to see the difference
