I get my wood burning materiel from a little cabinet shop down the way a mile or so(my next door neighbot).
Had this scrap of oak plywood thought I would make something usefull out of it and share with the site. The second picture is a larger one of the same subject on the right rear door of my 1956 Chev Pael Delivery. As one can tell I love fighting the grain trying to make it all blend together.

This is a beautiful piece of artwork. To me this is begging to be put in a frame and mounted on a wall, as any fine picture should be.

Nice post. I enjoyed looking at this.

A Picture is a big subject, name it my friend and I will work it in. Might take a long time to try and equal your expertise with the burning iron. I’ll try, just name the subject.

Extra ordinary piece of wood burning. The ram looks like a photograph. I would like to see your other wood burning projects.

Yes Sir!, thanks for the comment. Woodburning or pyrography is a neat way to get involved with wood. The Ram was burned on oak, preferably not a good wood to burn. I think Birch is the best all around that I have found. Sharad, I don’t know why my flickr site dosen’t come up with this post below. Just click on to my avatar up by EGA and it will take you to my home page. The blue site click on and it will take you to some of my art on Flickr. Glad you found this outstanding woodworking site. So from here to you in India, welcome and you can get help here from anyone, I have!! Thanks and Semper Fi.
