In this post I’ll be sharing How to Make Wood Slice Garden Markers.
We planted our garden this year, and looking for a good way to stencil some garden markers for the different rows of produce.
I decided to use some of the logs from the wood pile and some leftover 2×4 planks to make wood slice garden markers.
I was going to use a chainsaw to cut lots of wood slices, but because of all of our different saws either being left at or borrowed by family members, I reverted to using a reciprocating saw, and it worked just ok.
Anyway all that to say that I only cut 2 slices until we get some of our more capable saws back to do the job.
After the 2 wood slices were cut I cut one of the planks in half, then cut them at the tips to make stakes out of them.
They actually had a natural hole in the wood slice, so no pre-drilling was necessary.
I simply drilled the wood slice and stake together using one screw and they hold great.
Then I stenciled “peas” and “spinach” on the wood slices, and sealed the fronts where I stenciled them with a coat of polyurethane.
I didn’t bother super sealing them because I’m honestly not worried if they don’t last more than a season because these were so easy I could simply make more next year.
I have some more garden markers to make, but at least I got these 2 made. The stencils I used on these garden markers can be found here.
I used a hammer to drive the stakes into the ground.
