Farm crates built for a friend w a hobby farm. The slates are cut from 2×8 on the band saw, glued and shot w 16ga nails. the bottoms are cut to stack.

The logos are done by laser printing on paper in reverse then taping them to the surface, then wet down w Acetone and rubbed with a rounded handle of a wooden tool..

Too much acetone and the lines aren’t crisp. It is not like screen printing but if your looking for a rustic approach this takes 5 minutes or less.

Those look great! They would be great for transporting product when I do fairs or farmer’s markets. (I’m using cardboard boxes now but they look bad sitting under my tables during the shows). I could also see using something like that around my office for storage. I have lots of clutter (it’s actually all good stuff but it looks bad sitting out – foils for the laser, backing material for the embroidery machines, etc.).

Thanks for the printing tip! That’s a new one for me, and one I may have to try.
Any idea whether lacquer thinner would do the same trick? I only ask, because I spray a lot of lacquer, so I always have thinner around, acetone, not so much.

I posted because of I found the transfer method so simple. After all the crates are super basic.

My guess it would work I think most solvents would. The beauty of acetone is it evaporated almost instantly. I think it cuts down on smudging or bleeding.
