Scorched wood policy

My very first woodburn.  I decided I really wanted to try this out, but didn’t want to go for the expense of a whole kit.  So, I bought a cheap woodburning pen from Michael’s.  It’s made by Walnut Hollow, the same company that cuts my wood plaques.  Wow, and I just realized how evocative of country kitsch these materials are, nonetheless I’ve got some very cool and non-traditional ideas in store.  Just you wait.  And I intend to use reclaimed and rescued wood wherever I can, even if only prepared panels that someone else didn’t want (I’ve got enough of those for a few projects  yet).
