@yumdelish - I think you would be better off buying a silk screening kit and getting a little familiar with the process before you try it on wood.
If that doesn't appeal to you I think you'd be okay, it will just be a bit harder to grasp at first.
Wood needs to be prepped with several coats of acrylic emulsion, which all need to dry, so allow plenty of time. Afetr you're finished you will need to varnish it, probably twice.
Because it takes so long I usually get an early start and allow an entire day for one piece. It's worth it though, and these days I hardly ever do anything else.
