Dana brought me this piece of spruce, planed down nice and smooth and said: “Do something with this!”

It was very wet and bled quite a bit while burning. I took rubbing alchol and cleaned it and then proceeded
to reburn the sappy spots. It turned out better than I expected, considering the battle with the sap.

Tell me what you think.

This piece will be for sale on my site:

Very nice, it’s quite amazing how much detail there is in it. i have only tried my hand at pyrograghy once and i throughly enjoyed it.

Good job and hope to see more in the future.
