How to Use Your Colwood Wood Burner
Add Dates and Signatures to Your Work
Perhaps the easiest and most obvious way to immediately incorporate pyrography tools into your work is by burning in the date of completion as well as your signature or initials. This allows you to keep a permanent record of when you completed a project that won’t dull with age. We strongly recommend a woodburner for this reason alone, but we’re sure you’ll find other great ways to use this tool (like the ideas below!).
Try Something New
No matter how long you’ve been enjoying the art of woodworking, many of us always feel the pull of wanting to try something new. Wood burning is the perfect way to do just that. Whether you’re stuck in a creative rut or you want to flex your creative muscles, learning to draw with a wood burner is the perfect way to take your latest project to the next level. Whether you want to practice your drawing skills to put on display in a project or you simply want to add some elegant details, a wood burner is a great way to do it.
Create Some Unique Wall Art
There are plenty of great designs out there that you can utilize to create a piece of wall art. Whether it’s a welcome sign for the doorway to your shop or a stylized drawing of the exterior of your home, the possibilities for this type of tool are nearly endless. The result is a unique piece of art made out of wood. In other words, it’s a win/win.
