It’s not technically a woodworking project so I can’t post it in the main project section but if can be used on all of your projects. I hope this can help you out and save some money. This is an extremely easy way to get a nice custom logo or message on your projects. If you feel like it would help others out feel free to share it in the forum or wherever else you want. Here’s the quick video:

Awesome tip! Thanks!

Have you tried it with a clothes iron or edge banding iron? Perhaps those won’t get hot enough.

Great tip Jay. I use this method to make many of my game boards.

@mnguy- you can use a regular iron. That is what I use more often then not. You have to be very careful with the woodburning pen as it can be too hot pretty quick and leave an additional burn behind. The iron takes a bot longer but does work and generally will not burn the wood.
