Awesome Job, love the simple clean look of the frame with the highly detailed woodburning. You definitely have a knack for art.

Love it, I have a Chlt Lab that is my little girl as well. It would be fun to do this.

Welcome Karen. I just love your woodburning. This one reminds me of our Molly we lost a few years ago. Thank you for sharing.

Another nice wood burning project. Someday I want to take up wood burning but I’ll have to save up for some equipment to try it.

Believe it or not I don’t use any fancy equipment – just a single temp burning pen which I’ve had for years and years. A few months ago I ordered one of those Optima set-ups and the company never filled the order or charged my card for it. They also never returned any inquiry emails so I sorta shelved that desire. One day I will get that setup but for now I stick with my old, comfortable pen.

Thanks everyone for the nice replies. :)

For I second there I thought I was looking at Buddy, my Golden. The burning is fabulous and you are pretty amazing. Thanks so much for sharing.
