Burning Down the House

The new craft I tried this year was woodburning. I saw a kit online about a month ago and decided to try it and make some Christmas gifts in the process.

The kit included the tool, a few different-shaped points, letter stamps, and a bunch of wooden utensils.

I wasn’t nervous until I watched a video tutorial, during which the host mentioned that the tool warms up to 950 degrees.

That’s hot.

I’m happy to report that I didn’t burn myself or any of my possessions. I enjoyed trying it out, although I have a long way to go to perfect it. I really liked using the letter stamps but realized that one needs to have somewhat of a perfect touch to get the whole letter burned—not too light and not too dark.

This might be a craft that I explore further. Have you tried woodburning?

Happy New Year to all! Thanks for reading about my birthday list adventures.

    That looks cool! I like the Lil Bro spatula. I tried wood burning in junior high wood shop. On a cutting board, I think. Don’t remember how it turned out.
