  • Woodburning Question


    When I view some of the work shown in albums, I have wondered how some of the lines (for example skin creases) are made. I assume some of them are very fine cuts with a small blade, but are some of the markings made with wood burning?

    Thanks, Dale

    Dale, I have used a wood burner to do some of the fine lines in a picture if I think it will weaken the wood too much to cut it. I believe it adds to the picture also. I have just a cheap wood burner that I can place different tips onto. I always practice on a scrap to make sure I have the tip I want.

      Mick when you burn those fine lines into your wood do you burn right throught the pattern or do it freehand ? and when you do your finish how well does the burning show? TIA

          Daryl,
          DON'T burn through the pattern!!
          If it is something you don't feel comfortable doing freehand, lightly pencil it in, or rub pencil lead all over the back of your pattern in that area and use it like graphite paper to transfer the lines (lightly) to the wood. Don't use carbon paper either (do you have to ask how I know??) 'cause it will leave a greasy residue on the wood that will just get nastier as you try to remove it.
          If you do a nice burn, it will show through most finishes just fine. Burning after finishing would release some nasty fumes you wouldn't like (don't ask!!)

            Hi Dale. I think your question, was how was the little lines creatied. like skin creases. well, it is called vaining. and what i do is. I drill the smallest hole i can at the begging or a v joint. and use a flat blade to cut the line. then i follow up with a spirale blade to try to widen the kerf, so as to try to hide the drilled hole. but sometimes , ok most the time, you just can't hide that dang old drilled hole. if you have a pin blade this would be shuch a big old hole to begin with , so you could do a woodburnig thing. not something i am good at, at all. on this picture, i just drilled a small hole. then inserted the smallest blade that fit the hole then cut away. it looks bad at the beggining. but after all is done. it looks great. your friend Evie

              Thanks all for the response. Sandi, you sound like you have had some experiences that you will help me and others avoid. Thanks.
              Evie, I love that pattern with the horse and buggy and you have done such a nice job . Is that a lid on a box or ? (hinges) I love the backing too. Would you consider sharing that pattern or tell me where I can get it. I am a retired Family Doctor and that sure looks like it could be an old time M.D. going to make a house call . I'm probably not good enough yet, but I would love to try it before too long. Please either respond here or a PM
              Thanks, Dale

                              First of all friend Evie, for the pattern info. and a big AMEN to what Evie said about your work Dale. Since that is a good example of "veining", I can see that I'd better do some reading and learn about that procedure. I sure don't have any idea where I should begin. I've got Patrick Spielman's Handbook, so hopefully it will be discussed there.
                              I plan to try a portrait tomorrow. The pattern is one that Robert aka Sawduster was kind enough to do for me.
                              Everyone in this "family" are so great to help one another, especially we beginners.

                                I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

                                I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.
