I have been intrigued with wood burning for a long time. Does anyone out there have some experience? What are some good projects to start with? Is it fun?

This is a totally late reply but I was searching for any woodburning/woodworking info and saw your post.  I just got into wood working after I made my boyfriend a box for Valentines Day.  I purchased a pretty good wood burning kit for
39$ at Michaels Crafts along with a couple of really cheap peices of wood (ones meant mainly for painting on.)  The wood kit had about 8 different burning points that came with it and basic instuctions.  Wood burning is pretty straight forward and you basically learn by doing.  I practised for about 10 minutes on a scrap peice of wood before I started on my Boyfriends gift.  I will post pictures of it when I can.  The box cost me about 5$, which I got at Michaels as well.  I really enjoyed woodburning and when I have a chance I will definately be doing some more woodworking! 

To live would be an awfully big adventure...

practice first, use light, repetitive strokes to build up lines- once you overdo it, you can't undo a mark so take your time. wood burning is all about texture, usually with little dots or lines, and yes, it is fun, provided you don't burn anything but the wood  Grin
