Hi all of you lumberjocks… nice to finally be aboard. I have been reading all of your postings for quite some time with my husband at night. He has his [wood building] workshop and now I have mine. I am just beginning at pyrography and after seeing some of the projects on the site I feel quite intimidated.
Well, I just wanted to introduce myself. I am quite impressed with all of your projects and many of the workshops I have seen.

Welcome!!! I am new at Pyrography and green in the woodworking so its all learning for me. The book I have is( Pyrography workbook A complete guide to the Art of woodburning from Sue Walters ). I found this to be very good for starting out. Welcome to lumberjocks and hope to see some of your projects as well. My first project is all lines no shades yet. Just wanted you to know you are not alone.

Paul700- Thank you for the suggestion of a beginning pyrography book. I have been wondering which one to get. So far I am at the writing stage. I am practicing my penmanship. I am writing verses of scripture on plaques of wood. I would like to get into graphics slowly. Shading is not coming easy to me.

Welcome, Dionna. It is good to have you on-board here. As I have said many times we all learn from one another here, irrepective of our individual skill levels. I agree with Jim that none of us are experts in all phases of woodworking, but we are all eager and willing to learn new ideas and techniques.

I am looking forward to seeing some of your projects.

Dionna, Welcome. I’m glad you’ve joined us here on Lumber Jocks. I’ve found this to be a very positive site and everyone is so willing to help each other no matter what their skill level or experience is. I’ve probably learned more here in the last few months, then I have over the past several years. It is so refreshing to see all the excitement and passion everyone seems to have towards their woodworking. Enjoy and we look forward to seeing some of your projects.
