So my co worker wanted something unique to surprise his wife for Christmas. The blocks have pictures on all sides so they can display the ones they want and there is a music box on the side. I have a hole for a button so they can push it and listen to the guy sing to his wife. The music box is the one from build a bear.

You did a nice job on this and I’m sure that your friend’s wife will be pleased.

That’s an awesome idea! How did you do the pictures? Are they printed and glued onto the blocks, or are the images transferred onto the wood? It looks like you can see the grain pattern in some of them particularly the 2nd one in from the left.

I did a project years ago that was a poplar box that held several DVD cases from the Lone Ranger series. I found out by accident that if you use an inkjet printer to print on laser printer transparency sheets, the ink does not dry. I printed a picture of the lone ranger and his horse and basically used the non-dry ink as a stamp against the wood. The image transfer was perfect!
