Poor man's marquetry: or: cheap and easy wood stain

Step 2: Draw on wood

transfer the drawing to the wood. There are several techniques on instructables for doing this. I used the following method:

Print your design out in mirrored form. Trace over the lines heavily with pencil.

Turn the drawing over and tape it into place on the wood surface.

On the back of your drawing, scribble heavily with pencil or burnishing tool. This will transfer the pencil lines of the drawing to the wood surface.

Remove the paper and trace over your drawing using pencil in any spots that did not transfer well.
