I had the idea to make a wooden license plate frame for a little while now and finally had the perfect opportunity to. I went ahead and used some Brazilian tigerwood for a few reasons: I have it on hand, it looks awesome, it goes very well with black, and since it’s typically used as a choice wood for decks, figured it was the perfect combo for a first try! I’m very pleased with how it turned out. It really was a quick project that can help utilize thin scraps you may have. It also appeals to the car enthusiast.
I decided to give another transfer method on this as well. The business name “West Coast Woods” was applied in a matter of seconds. Turns out this process is super quick and actually does work! All you need is a laser printer and lacquer thinner. Ill post a few more pictures of that process in the comments. Basically all you do is print what you want, but flip the image horizontally first. Then place face down, and rub lacquer thinner along the back of the paper. That simple!
Comments and concerns are appreciated! Thanks for looking!
