Article on Wood burning tools!

For any wood workers interested in wood burning, I have recently posted a new buyer’s guide to the best wood burning tools of 2018! I go over the difference between a solid tip wood burning tool and a wire tip wood burning tool and the benefits of each. You can also learn how much power you should expect in a pyrography tool and whether more is really better. There are many factors to consider when searching for a wood burning pen but the most important factor is the type of wood...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #1: UK to Colombia, the ups and the downs.

10-14-2013 11:02 AM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

I retired from the UK Police in 2006 after 30 years, and I think I only survived that period of time, because of my love of woodwork, I class myself as a late starter, I used to tinker with bits and pieces, but it wasn’t until I was 21 and my first Father-in-law who was a Chippy, gave me lessons and a few tools, that I decided that woodwork was definitely the hobby for me. In July 2006 I left the Police, and immediately moved to Spain, where I had had property for a number of years, ...

Carvers and Pyrographers - I need your advice!!

07-05-2010 08:13 PM by lightweightladylefty | 7 comments »

I want to purchase a wood-burner for my husband for his birthday, but I don’t know what to get him. Right now he has two very, very cheap ones with no heat settings. (They were probably both under $10 a piece many years ago!) I don’t want to spend a fortune but I’d like it to be good enough so he could do all the fine lines, etc. that he would like to do on his carvings. He also has been reproducing photographs on box lids for the grandkids. He does a very good job wi...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #6: Paddles #3 and 4 and I finally get to use my Dowelmax

12-01-2007 03:29 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

I’ve decided I really like making paddles. Very creative outlet and not only is it artistically challenging but the dynamics of the blade design are really interesting as well. I’ve got 5 paddles in the works at the moment but #3 is different from my earlier ones. Straight shaft, teardrop, no laminations, dovetail. I added some geometric woodburning, somewhat primitive looking. It also has a channel, kind of the reverse of a dihedral feeding into the dovetail. Paddle #3 I...

Pyrographic artwork for "Save the Children" paddle

11-16-2007 09:57 PM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

Hello All, Long time no blog. I borrowed a friends Burnmaster to try my hand at pyrography for the blade of my paddle. I’m a decent sketch artist but this is a first for me and woodburning (unless that done while a cubscout counts). I’m fairly pleased with the result. I should have the epoxy and varnish done this weekend and get started on the auction shortly after that. Humpback cow and calf I’ve put it on the paddle on the left. My 1st paddle….tough to...
