I have been hired to do another burning and I will try and show you my progress as i am going. this is the picture that I will be trying to attempt the details of shade. This is the same three room house that My DAD was born and raised in. the family still has the home place and they all enjoy every visit.

ok here is my first three steps. I spent most of the day burning and making another bit just for this picture and Im sure it will work on the next. I am trying to show you how my process works. hopefully I might help someone to do a real masterpeice. The biggest process is working with alot of patents. stay calm and have fun doing them.As i get a little further along I will show it.

After getting your picture, the next step is to find that purfect piece of wood. Not only does the picture weighs on the project , but also getting that certain peice of wood to do it on is a big factor on how your burning will end up. Watch and see how this one ends up.

OK , after spending many hours today, on this burning I feel like I have a project that I should do no more burning to it. Alittle sore and stiff but looking at it sure feels ggod. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I have doing it. . the shading is a very diffacult project but if you can set it right then your burnings will turn out as good as a picture. ok so let me know how I have done. It still need finishing put on it but that is a few days of work on that. thank you

A great subject to burn Jim. I know you will do more than just ‘attempt’ it. Looking forward to the finish!

Is this the finished project? It looks like a picture of a farmhouse.

If this is the “first step” of a project then perhaps a blog would be more appropriate for your progress – the “projects” section is for finished projects made of wood.

I am eager to see how this turns out – please create a blog! :-)

Jim, this will make an excellent subject for wood burning – I’m assuming that is what you mean.

Looks like a great place for a family reunion.

Just imagine the stories that have been told on that porch on a Sunday afternoon.

I think it will make a great wood burning and can’t wait to see the finished results.

Or, instead of a blog as ‘knotcurser’ pointed out, you could conduct a “class” with your step by step procedure. Yes, we are all interested. That’s why we are here.

KnotCurser, Thats the source image, followed by the perfect piece of wood, then the last two pics are steps in the burning process.

When I posted above all you had was the first image – you added things at a later date. Please don’t act like all the pictures, as well as your extra paragraphs in the description were there from the beginning.

I think your work is fantastic, btw.
