I blow glass sometimes when we makes something really nice we will have a wooden box made for it.

To put designs on them we use a type of vinyl sticker.

You basicly draw your design the cut it out by hand or with a plotter.

You then apply the sticker over top of the wood.
The sand blast the wood.
The area covered with the vinyl sticker will not be removed.
The sand will eat away at the rest of the wood and cause the design to be raised up from the blasted area.
You then just remove the sticker.


I've also pulled this off with one of those cheapo blasters but don't try it unless it's on soft wood.
If your using oak make the sticker and find some company with a huge blaster.
Alot of engine building shops and machine shops have a blaster that can help you.


--------------------

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

there are several other options, many printing companies offer laser engraving, wood is ideal, if you have the art they can do it. call around, if they cant they can usualy refer you to someone that can
