I have been playing around with wood burning and actually have only one tip. So this was a test on patience, it didn’t come out as sharp as I would have hoped, but I am sure I can do better when I order new tips for my wood burner. I did enjoy working on this piece, but was also glad when it was finished.

WOW .. your woodburning really adds attraction to the piece. Well balanced.

That is very inspirational and creative and you can’t claim that you were limited by your tools. I think that it looks great.

I guess, as an artist, I will always pick my pieces apart and find areas where I can do better and be able to improve and I do feel limited by my tools and know that when I get my new tips the pieces will be even better.

I know very little about wood burning or different types of burners, the extent of my knowledge is that you buy a wood burner, the tip gets hot and it burns wood hahaha. The burner that I have is one from walmart out of the hobby section.

Thanks again for all your comments and support this is truly a great place to share work,

Thanks again
