I am going to make coasters and boxes. Besides burning how could I put designs on the boxes and coasters. Any ideas will be helpful.

Laminate different contrasting wood, turn patterns in and do some hand carving to spruce them up!!

I have used Decoupage to put images on wood and it works well where a lot of detail is required, like small lettering. I print my own image on tissue paper and apply it with lacquer. Much like a home made decal. Another way I decorate wood is to use the “Double Bevel Inlay” method. I now decorate small boxes with this inlay process.

Marquetry and / or parquetry are my favourites.

Well I was going to suggest Jim Finns method, decoupage, but he beat me to it. Only another alternative to tissue paper is using photo paper.

Have your say...
