Making a Rustic Pallet Wood Sign for Goldie Girl’s Birthday

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 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 throne so I looked around the shop to see what I had to work with.  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.
