  • Project Question?

    I have a dilema & can't decide what I should do with this new project. It's a 3/4 in. thick bass wood piece with the bark on either side & the pattern I made myself. Should I cut it or wood burn it? It is a little thick for cutting, but, not a problem. I'm just going to run it buy all of you to see how you feel about it. I'll let you know what I decide & the finished project will be posted for you to view. Thanks for any ideas or give me a push. HA

    If it were me I would burn it. This is a great pattern and it would look amazing with different shades of burning.

      If you are experienced in pyrography I'd burn it as well. It will look awesome.

        I agree, burn it or carve it.

            Perk, how about a combination of both cutting and burning? I have done that on several pictures, they look great together.

              Thanks everyone & Mick, I have done both on some pieces too. I have been leaning toward that or just burning, because it is basswood, no wood grain. They use it a lot for carving . As a matter of fact, that's where I got the piece of wood. At our Wood Carvers annual show. They do some awsome carving & burning too, with their carvings. Will be a while before I get a start on this, as I'm finishing up the Iwo Jima cuttings that I did. Just finishing the frames. Thanks for your comments everyone.

                Well friends quite a week here on the prairie.
                Long back story, but our son was adamant we get a fast response COVID test last Saturday, so we could attend an outdoor gathering of his girlfrigirlfriend's family. About an hour into the ATV and dirt bike riding, he got off the 4-wheeler and dropped...
