As I was surfing the YouTube waves I came across photo transferring to wood so I gave it a try. I didn’t wait long enough for it to completely dry before I started removing the paper so it didn’t turn out as good as it could have.

So after a little roughing up with sandpaper and putting a coat of dark stain on this is how it turned out. With this being a relatively easy process, I am thinking this might be a good idea for Christmas gifts. The little stand seems to complete the package.

I was looking at some of the other posts on here about photo transfers and I am going to try poly…take a look a this…..http://lumberjocks.com/TheCrafsMan/blog/68650

I think the difference is that if you use Mod Podge, any white in your photo will be white. If you use the poly, any white in your photo will show the wood grain. For mine, I would have preferred wood grain look for the text.
