Wood Burning on Cutting Board

I have been practicing with my wood burning tools lately and wanted to put something on a project other than scrap wood. Found an unfinished cutting board laying around and thought why not. The board is 10 X 14 inches. It was 1 inch thick but was planed a couple times to erase my mistakes. It is made of Claro Walnut and Maple. Walnut is harder to burn than my practice pine, unlike the skin on my fingers. I decided to use a type of vine idea because I thought it might flow around the edges better. I hope to get better at wood burning in the future for the looks and the safety of my fingers.

Very nice Mel, I really like the pattern.
Gotta watch those fingers. LOL

Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
