I have a client that wants a Long Bar Top and would like to have Greek Style stamps under the finish.

Does anybody have any ideas where to find them or another method.

Here is an example pic of what they want.

Any Help is appreciated. TIA

Are you trying to achieve what the table in the right photo looks like (B/W, not color)? If so, do you have a laser printer?

Cheers,

You can just go online for images and use an ink jet printer and then transfer to the wood.

Woodworking for mere mortals does this…

Thanks ralbuck,
I have googled it. I’m looking more for (like) rubber stamp images, not so much like postage stamps. I will look through that site though, thanks.

Brad, the table top will be dyed a blue color, I haven’t spoken in detail with the designer but I’m thinking some of the images would be in color and some b/w. Yes I can access a laser printer. What kind of medium would I use?

Thanks Dirt
I was hoping to take the easy way out and save some labor by buying some kind of kit that had a bunch of different ones. Looks like maybe not so much.

You may consider a third alternative. Using a CNC laser you can scan and/or design what you want then engrave and apply the finish. Our FS laser (Rockler.com) with the removal of the bottom allows us to laser engrave a large panel in sections of 12”x20”. Engrave one section of the large panel then slide the laser to another section and engraved other items. Do this until the entire panel is engraved with items of your choice.

For black and white, you just print out the images (in reverse) on regular paper… then heat transfer it to the wood. I do it all the time with my ‘logo’ on projects along with a date, and it comes out looking great (and it’s more or less permanent). I’ve never tried a color laser printer, but I imagine it could work just as well since it’s essentially the same thing.

Cheers,
Brad
