I am a self-taught artist....Been drawing since I was 12. Been doing woodwork since 2006 or 2007. Woodburning since 2007. I love what I do. I make rustic plaques and woodburn them. Also make rustic benches, rustic coffee tables, rustic bars, etc and woodburn them also. Do alot of custom work. Thankful that woodwork isn't my only art though as I love to do charcoal drawing, oil pastel drawing, paint, etc.....
LMAO... I remember my last 2 names I used Dana and DanaA on here... I looked at the woodburnings and stuff and I am embarressed lol... Come a LONG WAY SINCE THEN SO DON'T HOLD IT AGAINST ME PLEASE :) LOL
Well looks like my woodwork is never gonna get approved so I can add more.... uggghhh....

WELL HAD A DOWNFALL YESTERDAY... HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A 16 FT LONG SIGN MAKE WITH "RED OAK" .... WHICH IS VERY TIME CONSUMING WHEN IT COMES TO WOODBURNING SINCE IT IS A HARD WOOD.... IF IT ISN'T BAD ENOUGH THAT I GAVE THEM AN AWESOME PRICE TO DO IT AND TOLD THEM TO GET MAPLE OR SOFTER WOOD BUT THEY DIDN'T AND I STILL STUCK TO THE DIRT CHEAP PRICE... I HAVE WORKED ON IT FOR ABOUT 5 TO 6 HOURS AND HAVEN'T COMPLETED EVEN TWO OF THE LETTERS DUE TO THE SIZE OF THEM. YESTERDAY WHILE WORKING ON IT MY WOODBURNER KILLED OVER,..... NOW I HAVE TO REPLACE IT. SO I WON'T MAKE ANYTHING ON THIS JOB. BUT I LEARNED A LESSON ....NO MORE FAMILY DEALS FOR ME... I NOW HAVE COST OF NEW WOODBURNER, NO TELLING HOW MANY TIPS, AND ABOUT 60 HOURS OF WOODBURNING AHEAD OF ME AFTER I GET WOODBURNER REPLACED.....SO BASICALLY I WON'T BE MAKING A DIME OFF IT..... UGGGGHHHHHHH....

Sorry to hear about the woodburner and the work, but hopefully the second attempt goes much more smoothly.
