Wood burning requested for a gift for an upcoming wedding. I was a little concerned about how well bamboo would burn, but I found this pre-made 11” x 13” bamboo cutting board for a decent price, so I thought I’d give it a shot. It burned smooth with no issues, I wouldn’t hesitate to use bamboo again for future projects.

Thanks for looking

Chris, you did a great job on that lettering and the overall project. You must have a very steady hand.

Thanks. I don’t know about having the steadiest hand, but I do have a good burner and magnifier!

very nice.

This will always make a wonderful gift when it is customized for a particular recipient.
