I built this shelf for my son talin to put all his john deere tractors on. the shelf is all hickory with zar gloss polly on it. the shelf went together pretty easy only had about 4 hours in. Now the wood burning was my first real project with my new burner and it took some time about 9 hours it says (Talin Kade Mosher)

Nice shelf. What type of wood burner did you use? That is something (wood burning) I’d like to try sometime. Great job!

@ Clayton, depending on what kind of woodburing you want to do, I think dictates what kind of pyrography machine you get.

You can do a lot of stuff with your standard $20 woodburning kit at Hobby Lobby. However, the Hobby Lobby one is only one setting….Hot. (Burn dark)
My profile pic on here was done with a single burner.
If you just want a burner that will do it’s job and not much more….then I say your run of the mill burner kit.

If you decided you like pyrography, then I would move onto the more expensive, temperature controlled burners. (so you can do very ‘light’ burns, vice the dark dark lines.)

I have a Razortip, duel output. It is nice. Much nicer than the burner at HL. But, it is also a lot more expensive~
