cool jim!

Off the bat I would be interested in knowing:
1) types of the art—meaning are there different forms, uses, etc.
2) tools: types, varieties, costs, entry level, advanced tools
3) techniques
4) woods—are all woods good for this art form or just some…maybe a list…

just a few thoughts…GOOD LUCK!

Just about anything you post on woodburning will be interesting Jim.
You are light-years ahead of anything I’ve seen on it.
I think like Matt, tools, techniques and just general thoughts you have on what works and what doesn’t.
You would certainly smooth out the learning curve for a bunch of people.
Thanks a bunch.

Nothing ventured nothing gained

run an advertisement in a local or regional newspaper in the classified ?

keep it short

you want them to call you and when they do, tell them what they need to bring and what you provide ie: you provide wood, they bring burning pens

get their e-mail addy and send them pics of what they will burn with a pen
