My first big wood burning project!! I’ve had my new wood burner for over a year now and I haven’t had time to do much with it except for small odds & ends. I’m especially proud of how this came out.

I used some birch plywood for the base with a light oak stain. The ginko nuts are actual gold leaf and glow very nicely with reflected light. Hopefully you can see it in the pictures.

This is also my first frame that I’ve made and I got some good use out of my new bench top Router table. It’s an arts & craft style frame of quarter sawn white oak that I had left over and put together with glued T-lap joints. I doubt that I’ll be buying many frames in the future.

Very nice job, on the frame and the pyrography. This would look good in my bungalow. Thanks for the post.

Jeremy – very nice project. Your frame is only a few steps away from the John Hall frame featured in PW last month.

That is magnificent! You’ve inspired me. The shading is very subtle. This is by far the best woodburning project I have ever seen, here or elsewhere. Thanks for showing me what a woodburner can achieve.

BTW, the frame is very nice too. Don’t BUY frames, you’re a woodworker for goodness sake.
