I saw this really neat pallet welcome sign online and decided to try my hand at making one.
Step 1: Deciding on the Size
I started out with the intention to use this as an entry mat for my front door landing so the dimensions are based on that.
The sign measure 21" x 35", which is similar in size to a standard entry mat.
Step 2: Securing the Planks
I recently purchased a pocket hole jig for another project. A pocket hole works really well for joining the planks, but in this application it doesn't provide enough strength to use as an entry mat.
I did go a little crazy on the number of pocket holes, but the jig is just fun to use.
