I have an old rope game that was my grandfathers from the 1950s. It is wood, and looks to be hand made. I want to refinish it and give it to my mother as a special Christmas gift.
Am looking for advice
- It doesn’t look to be lacquered, no thick coating. Looks like it was stained wood.
- I want to recreate the labels. I can make them in corel but am not sure what the best way is to transfer them to the wood. Multi color vinyl? Screenprint?
- I want to use the original wood, even if I replace the stickers and have to sand it way down.
- I have rope rings that are 70 years old. They look dirty. Was going to soak them in oxyclean and hose them down quite a bit. Any advice on cleaning them up>
Any advice? I am a wood working novice.
