Article on Wood burning tools!

04-23-2017 12:50 AM by woodburnigtlp | 2 comments »

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...

DIY Temperature Control (Soldering Iron / Wood burner)

12-18-2014 03:06 PM by bigfoot11 | 5 comments »

After seeing the price of a variable temperature soldering iron ($99!), I decided there had to be a cheaper way since I don’t need to use it every day. For about $15 total, you can get a Harbor Freight soldering iron and build this simple temperature control from bits from the home center. Step-by-step with tons of photos: Cheers!

Book Shelf - Portable Bookshelf - for Tabletop

12-31-2013 12:24 AM by Joe Lyddon | 18 comments »

Book Shelf – Portable Bookshelf – for Tabletop Wood Magazine – May 2003 – for Plans I used a Sliding Dovetail to attach the shelf to the Ends instead of what the plans called for. I found a Bed Headboard on the street on Trash day… was solid wood! That’s what I used. I could have / should have sanded the wood a little more, but I thought it would some character to it the way I did. A little wood burning was done for a Unicorn on each End. ...

pyrographics #3: another little secretr on woodburning

06-09-2013 01:32 AM by Jim Earl | 1 comment »

While setting here at my desk with another Burning on the table, I was thinking that ONE VERY IMPORTANT secret is(just like with woodworking, painting a masterpiece work of art, YOU have to look for the SOUL OF THE PICTURE. With wood burning, anyone can trace over a picture but you have to look inside the picture for the depth of each color. With a pattern being Black, white and many tone of gray this is where you can tell the difference in the picture. I really can’t describe how o loo...

Donna's DragonFly Harp Project

12-29-2010 02:18 AM by Donna Menke | 13 comments »

Hi Guys-I’m starting to make another harp and I thought some of you would be interested in seeing how it goes- as it goes.Why am I designing my own harp? I wanted to see if I could modify the Limerickplans I used for the Rainbow harp I made in 2007. I wanted the soundbox smaller,and I wanted it to be self-supporting and as tall as the Heartland DreamWeaverthat I have and like. I took aspects of lots of different harps and put them alltogether and this is what I came up with. I also want...

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...
