Great Job, Chris… I can’t get over the precision you get on the burnings!
And now your doing turnings too… I didn’t know you had a lathe… Good for You!!
What’s next? Burnt Turnings? :)

Man, how do you get that tiny lettering to be so clear with the burn?
That “death from afar’ is clearly legible.
My lettering four times that big doesn’t look half as good.
Nice job Chris.

Thanks guys! The lathe is a hand-me-down from another NC WWer. Still working the bugs out of it, but it is fun to work on. As far as the burning, lots and lots of practice my friends!
