Hello

I have two passions : Wood working and mountain bike DH ( downhill)

On this project I have my two passions together : What else ? a coffee perhaps !!!!
Its a transfert of a picture on a piece of wood

My son and me love this sport.

Last summer I’ve broken my mountain bike ( sniff) but I buy another one for this summer
(A cannondale claymore ) and I m waiting for the next holidays to try it on the french mountains

Comments welcome ( woodworking or biking )
Thanks for looking

Jack, did you transfer the picture on a piece of wood? It looks like pine grain to me. More info required here please

Best,

Serge

Is it just like T-shirt transfer?
Did you print it on a laser printer and iron it?

It looks cool.

Hello

Thanks to all
To Serge : Yes I’ve used pine

To Bob and lanwater : I use a classic printer because I don’t have a laser printer (The result is better with a laser printer ) to print the picture
I have done many project like this for last christmas.

Great looking picture, I have broke a frame, and tacoed a few wheels mountain biking and it is fun, although
I seem to have slowed down a bit that last couple of years. Thank you for sharing.

It’s a nice piece. I bet that you and your son enjoy your bikes together. That’s good.

Beautiful frame, the photo looks good on wood which gives an antique look. Well done!
