Very cool, it turned out great for a first attempt.  I have a friend that does wood burnings all the time, he says its very theraputic.

sweetybeads First you need to get a woodburner, they have them at most craft stores. There's all types out there, I just have a little cheap one with interchangeable tips. Also you can use a lot of the woodburners for soldering jewelry.
Once you have your woodburner select the type of wood you'd like. For the project I used one of the wood plaque/signs you can buy at craft stores.
Then transfer your image (or you could freehand) you'd like, allow your woodburner to heat up and trace around your transfer. The woodburners tip will burn the wood and you have your image.

Thanks for the comments and tips everyone! It's much appreciated.

I also have see a man use a magnifying glass to do woodburning, and he really did amazing portraits.

Sorcha Griannon- my nephew did that with a magnifying glass, he took a scrap of wood about 6x6 inches and covered it with little skulls, have no idea how long it took. When he gets interested in a project, the world could end and he'd never know. I had forgotten about magnifying glasses, but they do burn wood and grass with the help of the sun.
