Woodburning for the Restless

So, you're interested in woodburning and would like to give it try. Let me share a quick tutorial video that will walk you through some of the simple steps to creating a woodburned box.

Perhaps you feel apprehensive or jittery about handling a heated tool? Put your mind to rest and remember that man has conquered fire for ages! The burning tools available today have insulated handles and other safety features to keep you crafting.




Have a practice board handy for testing the poker (like Nick is doing), and when you touch down don't put much force behind the movement---the heat will do the work for you. I try to focus on where the poker is GOING rather than where it's BEEN and after a few minutes of burning you'll see why.




Now go burn something:)
