I've been wanting to freshen up my knife block which was shabby but not in a good way. The blonde wood stood out like a sore thumb and it had an unattractive Starfrit logo front and center.
I used a hand sander and stripped off the finish, then stained the wood using steel wool that had soaked in vinegar for several hours.
I did an image transfer with Citrasolv, using selected parts of an advertisement I found on The Graphics Fairy. I finished it off with a coat of mat water based fast drying sealant.
