The owners of a local sushi joint take such good care of Mrs. Schwingding and I that I made them a gift. A sushi set made from big leaf maple burl with their logo pyrographed on it. The pyro detail was achievable by using a simple pin point tool rather than more standard pyrography tools and a high powered magnifier. The detail you can get with this method is amazing, but it still makes my eyes bug out. I had hoped to turn the chopsticks but the burl was too fragile to turn that thin, so I cut it on the tablesaw, and tied the whole thing together with the pyro pattern on the ends and the border.
This is displayed proudly at the bar along with my business card, but I didn’t do it for that reason! (yes I have had referrals)
