Cut List for 48″ x 24″ Wooden Sign
For this big farmhouse sign I used this 48″ x 24″ piece of plywood from the Project Panels section in Home Depot. I love that you don’t have to start with a huge piece of plywood! Just grab one of the pre-cut panels!
For the frame, I use cheap 1″ x 2″ x 8′ furring strips. Cut (2) 24″ long pieces and (2) more 49 1/4″ long.

No need for any vinyl, or vinyl cutting machines! You don’t even need a paint brush and paint!
Instead, use a sharpie paint pen!
You can use a regular sharpie or a chisel tip sharpie, but the paint pen gives the best coverage.
