Burn It! Burn It!

As some of you know, I’ve been reading woodburning books this year. Well, you ask, what are you going to do about it?

Well, I did this:

They’re not the first projects I’ve done, but they’re the first I’ve posted here. I know, it’s all butterflies and birds and girlie stuff, but I’m working from stencils here, not traced or freehand designs. Strangely, even in Springfield, the craft store stencil selection does not feature any stencils of guns or bucks or that sort of thing, so until I get some NRA-licensed stencils, I’m going to have to stick with these until I’m good enough to do more intricate things.

That’s what I’m doing when I’m not lamenting the state of the government. I’m teaching myself a trade I can use when the government collapses.

Also, I’m always selecting More Dry because of my raging hydrophobia. That punchline bears repeating.

  1. It’s some sort of plaque with a homespun decorative beveled edge. It was just a blank plaque, albeit a finished one, when I found it at a garage sale for a quarter. I expect something fell off of it and the garage salers threw it on the table just in case of Noggle.

    I took the stain off of the front, but left it on the sides and back. After burning, I just put a clear coat on the front; I think the remainder of the stain on the sides and back adds a little framing.
