Here are a few engravings I have done with my dremel. I printed the pattern using normal paper, and traced it onto the board using a dull pencil. This left a slight indention into the soft pine. I then took another pencil and darkened the line to know where I needed to carve out. Each one is finished slightly different. The first one the letters were burned using a lighter then sanded to remove the burn marks from the top surface then sanded to 220 and finished with spare urethane and was a Christmas present to my in laws. The second one (welcome) was carved by a friend of mine showing how to do this technique, I then sanded to 220, stained and then 3 coats of wipe on poly sanding in between each coat. The last was a step stool for my daughter made from pine and sanded to 220, painted “double chocolate” and then I painted the letters in pink.
