Find a recent post "From Scrap to Wall Hanger". He tells how.

There's this one from Oliver too. http://www.routerforums.com/project-...technique.html

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

There are several ways on youtube to do this. Some work better then others.
The way I do it is I use wax coated freezer paper. 1st print on to card stock then tape the freezer paper over the spot on the card stock. Set your printer to premium photo paper setting and reverse image and reprint. While the ink is wet place face down on the wood. Careful not to move it or it will smear. The ink is absorbed into the wood. When dry remove the paper and you will have your picture on the wood. This is an example

Without quality you only have firewood.

Steve Ramsey on Woodworking for Mere Mortals covers a technique that works very well for this.

That's pretty cool. Using some sort of UV blocking clear coat would be a good idea as those inkjet inks are notorious for fading in sunlight.
