Default How to transfer photo to wood!

Not sure where to post-but I found this interesting youtube video on how to take a photograph and easily transfer it to wood. I thought it presented some options for some interesting projects and thought I'd share it here for those interested.

I couldn't post the url link as I don't have 10 posts yet, but if you search for the following on youtube it should come up.


It seems easy, doesn't take long and it really could be interesting when you think of the things you could do sort of like you might use inlays, put images on table tops or wherever you'd like.

Have fun!

Hi Paul, Tks for sharing. Coincidentally, I looked at three or four YouTube videos about this very subject over the weekend. I was surprised at both the method used (straightforward) and the results (pretty good). I happened to mention this topic to my wife and adult daughter......their reaction was not enthusiastic lol. Nevertheless, I'd like to make several of these of my family members and have them placed around the workshop. Ben

I tried several of the methods on the Utube and the 1's that have you wash off the paper always look blurry. The 1 where the guy puts his logo on the back of his guitars works best, however I don't like the expense of using shipping label backing. I use the wax coated freezer paper. Cheaper and you can cut it to the size U need for the picture. These are 2 examples of boxes I made several yrs ago.

Without quality you only have firewood.

I have a hobby Laser so when I read your subject, I was thinking along those lines. I had never seen this. Thanks for sharing.
