Wood Scroll Saw Sign

I made a wood sign for my workshop using a scroll saw. The pieces are cut from a single 1/2” pine board and glued onto a backer board with Titebond II wood glue. The backer board is a regular piece of 1/4” plywood that is painted with flat black spray paint. I used blue tape to mask off a border around the edge of the sign. I applied a protective coat of spray lacquer to finish it off.

This was a very easy project and the only tools you really need are a scroll saw and a drill to cut the letters, plus any kind of wood backer board.

Thanks for looking!

Steve, did you glue after or before painting the backer board? Looks great!

Thanks everybody! I painted the backer board flat black and then glued the letters on. I was surprised at how well they stuck to the paint. I’d have to use a chisel if I needed to pry one off.

Great looking sign. Like the dark background, makes the beautiful letters really pop out. Well done!
