DIY Rustic Pallet Wood Sign My Little Baby Turns One | Woodworking Builds

My daughter was turning one and it was time to build her a pallet wood sign to frame her smash cake throne. It was an easy DIY project that was only a one day build. I am not big on working with pallets, but this one turned out looking alright. I hope this gives you some inspiration for an easy build for the family or heck maybe even a Christmas present for the family. When I get a chance, I do like to work with reclaimed wood, hope you enjoy the video.

They grow up so fast! My youngest is turning one, and of course in modern fashion we are doing it BIG. So I had a bunch of items on my honey do list lately, this was the one I was most happy with.
My wife wanted to make a sort of smash cake throne for Marigold to get those perfect pictures, so that someday she will remember how good of parents we were...

She asked me to make a sign to hang up behind the smash cake throne so I looked around the shop to see what I could make. I could've carved the sign into a piece of hardwood with a router but I wanted to do something different. So I grabbed the pallet that my new table saw was shipped on, and went to town. This is a very easy woodworking project using minimal tools. This is not my first reclaimed project using wood from Pallets but it is the first one I have done that didn't end up as shop furniture.
