I did a couple more projects last night to finish up the white elephant type gifts we needed for tomorrow. Tammy had this el cheapo knife set that she asked me to dress up a bit, and the bird was done for Stacy to give as her gift. Its done on a chunk of wood courtesy of the Furbster. :)

Woodburning on that felt a little like dressing a pig in a suit. :D  What a cheap piece of crappola. I think Tammy said she gave 2 dollars for it at menards thinking I could do what I did with it.  The knives are sharp, but so is the jagged lid off a tin can.   I'd like to do another sometime more elaborate on a quality knive block set.

All ya gotta do is replace the knives with better ones.
I picked up some decent ones for 50 each (reg price was $4-5 each) at Meijers several years back on clearence.
Just gotta look around.
$2 for the block isn't bad, worth more now with the suit. ;)

I'll snap a picture of the end grain.  This stuff is being produced out of very young fast growing stuff.

I KNOW I could make a better one if I had the tools. The amish store down here has some good knives at decent prices that you can buy one at a time and build a collection. My Favorite Kitchen knives are Old Hickorys but they are tough to find.

Is walnut too dark to do wood burning on?   I could fix up a nice one for you.  Or maybe pecan, Woodbowls wood :)

I really like the bird!!!!

Too bad they wouldn't burn white or yellow eh? Maybe do some etching with a Dremel and white wash with thinned latex, dry, then sand? ;)

Her woodburner is made by Colwood.  It is a heavy-duty unit and has 2 hand-held burners with individual heat controls and interchangeable tips.  I can't remember where we bought it, but if you did a search, it may come up.

Zoom in on one of those panels, so my eyesight isn't strained. ;D

Looks real good though, lots of work. I'd get wood burners cramp.  ;)
