Experimenting with putting a picture on a piece of wood and I think it came out pretty good on the unstained wood. Tried to add the pictures but some reason they are not showing up.

There are many ways to do this but I do it the easy way and I print it in high Quality or Photo mode on my printer and I am using a inkjet printer. In the first video you need to use your fingers to rub the back of the paper real good and not letting the paper move so it doesn't smear.

Here's another way also but more time consuming.

Here's what I have been working on. Got the sanding done, now I have to decide weather to stain them or leave them plain with a gloss finish. Going to put a picture on the front. Like the picture in the above post, but only one will have the picture above. Plain or stained ?

Unstained would have better contrast on photo. Would be cool if you could leave the place where the image is placed unstained. Then stained over all the rest. In any event it will look nice.
