Radiorental writes “Based on the letter tiles instructable you can make any number of objects from key fobs, jigsaw puzzles. Most applications require nothing more than sealing the image with some varnish which also helps the colours stand out. However in this instructable I show an alternative method of ‘printing’ an image on to wood and how to apply a cork base to placemats and coasters”Link.

  1. If you check in the “Letter Tiles” Instructable that is exactly what is being done… The second method mentioned is to use Varnish to hold an image already printed on regular paper to the wood… First method allow the wood grain to show through, the second method is more or less glueing paper to wood… Hope that clears it up some… This was written by RadioRental and he assumes you had read the the “Letter Tiles” first as it explains the process used…

  2. “Couldn’t you just get some iron on transfer paper and iron the image onto the wood?”

    Why didnt I think of that? (o;

  3. The link to the instructable doesn’t work and I am still curious how to do this. Did anybody save the instructions – iron on transfer paper would not work in my case.

  6. I do art wood burning for a hobby. In this, you, first, put a piece of graphite paper between a drawing and a piece of plywood. Next you use a knitting needle and trace the drawing, this results in the drawing being transfered to the wood. Lastly a soldering iron type pen is used to burn the wood. The only problem I experience is, if the drawing is very detailed, I often miss transferring of some of it’s lines. Can anyone help with another method I could use, that does not rely on me tracing every line.

    1. Make a photostat copy of picture then place face down on surface then use cotton swab dipped in thinners wipe over the whole area that you want transfered MP
