Kinda: What To Do With An Entertainment Center

Operation Woman Cave commences today!

My Atkins Keto Journey

So, today is the day.  My son is moving out and I get to transform his room into my woman cave!  My new weight machine and all my weights will be moved in there (not sure if I should get those mats for the floor, since it’s a wood floor).  But before I can do that, I have an entertainment center, a long dresser, and a small-ish desk to deal with.  Aside from my training equipment, all my sewing/crochet/weaving (hopefully get started on learning that) and any other non-messy crafty things will be moved in there also (the wood carving will remain in the garage).  So, storage is a necessity. 

I found these links and need to share on both blogs.  I had initially thought of mounting the entertainment center on top of the dresser but I think that may end up being too tall (kinda making a china cabinet).

Transferring Images to Wood

So, I’m on a major tangent (as I stated in my last post).  The majority of wood carvings I have seen either employ hand drawing the designs onto wood (I’m not that good) or buying special transparent adhesive papers to just carve through.  I figured there had to be a simpler (and more cost effective way) to transfer an image onto wood.  So, I’ve been searching and found two options that may work.

This first one is for transferring inkjet printed images onto wood (and leaving it) as art.  This one is the most cost efficient, if it would work for me (but I can see this being awesome for painted signs, artwork, putting onto furniture, etc.):

This second one, she is using for pyromancy (wood burning) but could be fantastic for power carving also!  I just have to make sure (with both of these methods) that the wood is sanded smooth.

And here’s one that uses duct tape!  How sweet is that?
