Ryan,

You certainly are busy. This is a nice bread box and I really like the woodburning. You did a good job with the lettering.

Thanks for the post.

Good job on the box. Did you do that bit of carving along the front edge too?

You have made a very good bread box. The wood burning is superb. Is it necessary to make a stencil for the letters before burning ?

Thanks. I printed the letters off of the computer in a font that I liked, then taped them to the bread box and burned the outline through the paper. Then I just filled them in from there.

Great job! What kind of burning iron did you use?

thanks for the compliment. I picked up the woodburning iron it my local hobby store. I wasn’t sure if I would do much more woodburning than this project so I bought one of the cheapest ones they had. I think it was like 15 dollars and its electric and has 6 or 8 interchangable tips. It worked great.
