I love this show and wanted to do something crazy, so we were laying around with photo transfer ideas. We found a way to do it with a regular inkjet printer and have to say it came out great. So we made a coat and hat rack and sent it to Mr Richard Rawlings himself.

Awesome. I get the feeling he will get back in touch, just seems to be a regular guy, and that is a great item for him, or the show.

Thanks for posting, and Congrats on your 3.

Nice! Love the show too, How did you get the transfer to work with an inkjet? I’ve only seen it work well with a laser printer

nicely done !!
ditch those dainty little hangers and find some crankshaft bearing halves
and mount them as hangers instead – that would be more appropo.
again, nice job (and congrats on the Top Three).

Thanks Everyone for the kind words, this is how we did it with a inkjet. I used photo transfer paper we bought on Amazon $25.00 for 20 sheets, it’s made to use with an inkjet printer. Print your image in mirror so it comes out backwards, that way when you lay it on our board, it will transfer right side up. Use a regular iron with no water, the heat from the iron will transfer the ink. I hope this helps.

The method for a Laser Jet is essentially the same except the paper could be the label sheets with the labels removed. Print on the shiny side.
However, that may be the same paper the OP purchased as transfer paper.

Yep but the paper were using is a better quality and can also transfer to clothes too, not just wood. I rather spend a few dollars and have it look good rather than hookie,just my thought.
