My neighbor’s are about to have their first child. This weekend I decided to make them a small celebratory gift, a turned maple and walnut baby mug. Now I always love being able to use the lathe but for this project I also did some wood burning for the first time, and it will probably be the last because I did not enjoy the experience. I could not get the iron to move smoothly across the wood as it tended to try and follow the grain, which was very frustrating.
