    My wife likes chickens as a theme for decorating, so I made this one for her birthday.

    It’s figured maple, turned on the lathe and the face is another attempt at a Lazertran transfer.

    No chance of that Salko. Your clocks are truly works of art.

    Very cool, Peter. I have no idea what a Lasertran is, but the result looks great.

    Lazertran is an inkjet decal paper that has some useful properties. I’m still learning how to use it.

    @pjgeorge – Peter, I once experimented with laser printing my name backwards using a couple different kinds of printers. The intent was to use the printout and some acetone to transfer the ink (and my name) from the paper to a project. I couldn’t get it to work. Is that the type of thing that Lazertran can do?

    @mattmcgrane It’s along those lines but more advanced. There’s a link to a workshop PDF on their website that gives an good idea on how the products can be used. They have products for ink jet and laser printers. The website is http://lazertran.com/us.

    It’s kind of expensive and takes some experimentation to get the results you want, but for someone like me who sucks at drawing and painting, it’s worth it.
