wood burning
« on: January 24, 2007, 10:11:55 PM »
For Christmas this year on Tammy's side, Tammy's brother and his wife made Jeremy and I each a unique little folding stool. He brought them in folded up and it took a couple minutes to figure out the trick to open them up. They are really sturdy little stools, and my kind of woodworking. A skill saw, a drill and a hammer. :D

I decided I was going to decorate mine a little. Anyhow, today my computer was down and I took some time to putter around some more with my first attempt at woodburning. I had started tracing this out on the stool a couple weeks ago a little each day. Took me about 3 days to do that because of the tedium :D   Yesterday I dug the woodburner out that Stacy had gotten herself last year and today I had at it.  I might possibly do some shading in, or not, butin any event I wanted to take a couple photos in case I really mess it up. :D

Wanna see a table you can make to go with that stool Jeff?

That turned out real nice Jeff. Now between you and Pigman, when do I expect to get my stool? :D :D

I have a wood burner also Jeff, but I haven't used it in years. Don't even know if it still works.

I remember as a kid, maybe 12 or so, I took one apart. I had one of those tv trays in my bedroom and I had the burner plugged in. Seems it wouldn't heat up, that's the reason for disassembly. I touched both terminals on the metal edge of the tv tray, and ....




...a flash and two instantly cut out holes in the metal edge. :D :D Well, that was enough excitement for awhile. :D :D  ::)
Move'n on.

I'll get a pic tomorrow.
My Uncle bought it someplace and my Grandpa used it as a pattern to make another.
He never finshed the second one, but it is put together.
I'll see what one I can find.

Nice wood burning by the way.

I have a big wood burner that I made out of an old water heater. For some reason the wood  that goes in it does not come out looking that pretty.  :( I am not the artistic type, but sure do like to to look at good artists work. Looks great Jeff. 8)

Swampy, you are a good wood worker, you can build your own stool. ;)

Pigman,

I've made bunches of those stools, (they sell good at our church Craft's Fair) but no way I could decorate 'em up like that;  looks great.  Furby, we all want to see the table.............

That's a great little project stool! Care to share a few dimensions?  ;D Jeff that woodburning is super! You ever do anything big like a mural? Painting or woodburning? I have a blank wall upstairs in my barn,that is 10'X56' of roughsaw pine that would love to have a scene like that on it. You could stop by here on your next trip to Tom's,we won't ask you to eat grits I promise  :D

Nice work Jeff.

And I thought wood burning was what you did with a dull blade when cutting maple!   :D

I wanna try the other variation on it, I'm not arteestic enough to try that.  ::)

You get a cut vinyl sign shop to do a layout for you, name, address, scenery, whatever, and stick it to a fairly soft piece of wood, cedar, pine, etc., then hit it with a sandblaster, the vinyl bounces the grit away, the bare wood gets etched. When you have it cut to the depth you want you peel the vinyl and just barely char the whole thing with a propane torch and sand the high points back to virgin wood.

It looks kinda nifty, makes the grain really stand out, being harder it doesn't sandblast the same as the rest does.  ;D

If you're going to break a law..... make sure it's Murphy's Law.
