no previous part Part 1 of Segmented Pyrography vessel #2 series no next part

This vessel is made from maple and macassar ebony. My goal was to make a square wave pattern with a tilt. This turned out to be more tricky than I realized but finally figured it out. The center of the vessel will be burned with a pattern I found in a Youtube video. The pattern is called Ududu by Ellen Wolters.

First step is to draw out the design from which I will get all my measurements. The final result turned out a little different. The vessel was made in two parts and then glued together.

The last picture is before any finish was applied.
I’ll post the final result on the projects section in a day or two.

I saw it on my phone just as an image ealier today, I thought wow, how did he do that, checked it out and found out you wood burned it on. Sound easy, ha right. Yours looks flawless, I bought a wood burner as I hope to use it for decoration too. Question that I have no clue to, How did you transfer the design to the round curved vase so flawlessly.

Brian, I drew it on the vessel with a pencil but first drew grid lines to help guide my eye. If you watch the YouTube videos by Ellen Wolters that will help explain how it is drawn.
