Found some interesting drawings on the internet and made a practice piece.
I first drew out the pattern on paper and then burned it onto a scrap piece of poplar.
This design will be used for a top of a round box.

I hope the box turns out fairly non-descript, it would be a shame to take away from this beautiful top

Very nice! That will be a remarkable box. What did you use for the coloring?

Coloring was done with ink markers which can be purchased from most craft stores (Hobby Lobby or Michaels).

Please forgive me for being pyrgraphically-challenged (is that a word?) but i am very curious as to the tool you used to burn it and how you got the pattern to the wood – did you adhere the pattern to the wood and burn through it? The pattern is awesome, would you share a link to where you found it? I think this is very neat the way you used similar colors but just different enough to create this amazing swirl! Can’t wait to see the finished product, too.

Kim, I drew the pattern directly on the wood with a pencil. You could glue a paper pattern to the wood. I used a compass and protractor to establish a few reference lines so that it was easier to guide my eye and hand. I found the pattern on a YouTube video. I think the video was titled, “Hamsix Daily Tangle”. If you search “tangle” or “Zantangle” on Youtube you will find many videos. The videos show how to draw various designs on paper. I just drew it on wood. Wood burning tools: there are a few different companies that make the burning pens. I purchased mine from PJL Enterprises. Hope that helps.

very attractive and well done. Sure even for basically doing it without a full size pattern.
