Wood Burning as Embellishment
Woodcarving and scroll sawing are a couple of skills that are not in my wheelhouse. I have experimented with both and had mixed results. Same goes for pyrography: in more than 40 years of woodworking, I have only done one project with a significant amount of wood burning. As a result, the total amount that I know about wood burning, if it was converted to dynamite, could not blow my nose. But I have seen some beautiful examples of pyrography. Is wood burning a skill you use for your projects? What sorts of pyrography do you do? Inquiring minds want to know.
