I made this wood license plate for my wife’s van. It contains our local high school logo. This is a quick and easy project that anyone can make for a car, truck, bike, boat, or other vehicle. They also make great gifts for any sports fan, auto enthusiast, truck driver, car collector, racing fan, soccer mom, etc.
Search Google Images to find logos.
Select a simple logo that will be easy to cut out.
Use contrasting woods and thicknesses to add color variation and depth.
You can use a coping saw, jig saw, scroll saw, or band saw.
Use Titebond II wood glue for exterior applications.
Apply a weather resistant finish.
Use thin wood (1/4” or less) as thicker wood may require longer screws.
Check your local laws regarding front license plates.
Be sure to fasten the plate securely to your vehicle.
