A woodburning project I did long ago, that had too many photos, so now it's a blog. ;)

I made this wood-burned paddle for my mother-in-law/father-in-law’s living room in like, 2002, I think. I took a lot of photos of it, and I couldn’t bring myself to choose only six for a project post. Plus, this is so old, it’s better as a blog. I just used a standard burning tool, with no fancy attachments… just a fine point. I love to wood-burn! It’s hanging in their living room under a shelf with a ship on it. I hope you like it! :)

not to be picky … but this would be a good project ;) (just kidding ) – but seriously, you COULD choose 6 photos to upload to LJ for the project, and then post the rest of them just like you did here for the blog ;)

lol.

sorry, couldn’t resist.

love the wood burning, havent done that in a long long long long time…

Your very artistic. I could never use the paddle, only because it would ruin it. I could see why it’s on your mother-in-law’s living room. You did a great job. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Reggiek! I plan on doing a lot of woodburning in the upcoming weeks. It’s one of my favorite things to do. :)

Thanks to you, too Kent! It’s a blog and a blog it shall STAY! (regardless of what PurpLev thinks about it. lol) ;)

Thanks Kindlingmaker! Cape Hatteras is one of my favorite places!

And thanks to you, too David! :)

TiffanyJeanne,
I’ve never done any wood burning so to speak, but I can tell that this took many, many ,many hours! I Love the subject matter as well. It appears that you included the Currituck and Bodie Island light houses as well as the Hatteras light house at Buxton. My only disappointment with the piece was the omission of the Ocracoke light house on the same said island. Those Outer Banks have been my souls sanctuary for over 50 years now. I only get down there about 3 times a year now, but my mind visits them daily, even after all these years. Congratulations on an excellent gift for your mother-n-law of whom I am exceedingly envious!

Sincerely,
Ken McGinnis
