This was my project for our president’s challenge for our woodturning club this month. The challenge was to turn a wall display. I turned a cherry blank into a plate and decided to embellish with some woodburning. I have done very little woodburning so far but looking to expand upon it. I chose the 3 balloons due to just burning lines for a design and not to have to deal with shading and depth at this point. The plate has a 9” diameter.
Thanks for looking.

You’re way ahead of me on the wood burning. My looks like grade school. Nice piece.

Nice plate Mike. I’m really impressed with the precision of the wood burning lines. They look laser accurate. I’m looking forward to seeing what you do with future wood burning projects.

Nice turning and the burning really sets it off.
