Yes, I know ... it's another woodburning. Smiley Is there any other thread where the woodburnings would be better posted to?

Way to go, you chose a wonderful image and did a great job!

I only just found out about woodburning when you posted this and have been reading up on it. Here's my question: Is the finished object usually used for decoration, or would you eat off it, or what? A whole new world is opening up to me... Smiley

"Easy to Assemble" should be a warning label, not a selling point!

From what I've seen, woodburning is much more of an "ourdoorsy" art. I picked it up from my mom when I was a wee little boy, where she would cut off a limb from a tree, dry it, sand it down, and then woodburn images of horses and (ironically) forests. Craft stores today however sell ready made wood (~$5.00) and woodburning pens (~$20.00). However ... I like creating scenes like this. I've heard that you can also do burning onto leather, but I haven't delved into that craft yet.

Also, as far as I know, it's strictly a decorative art. I know there's some people who take those ready-made birdfeeders and burn into that. I guess if you took anything wood (dressers, desks, furniture, ect ...) you could make anything you want.

I wouldn't use wood (burned or unburned) to eat, say, spaghetti off of, but I burned Christmas-y images on a wood plate (from Michaels), coated it with a spray sealant, and gave it to my fiance's grandparents as a cookie plate (complete with a batch of cookies, of course).

Cookie plates .... perfect! Maybe if you even took one of those plates and turned it into a candle plate.
