Before You Start

Before you begin, prep your work area by covering it with a layer of old newspapers or a drop cloth. This will help protect your surfaces from any stray sparks. Next, gather all of your tools and materials. You'll need your woodburning tool, of course, as well as some woodburning tips, a piece of sandpaper, and some wood glue. Now you're ready to begin! Start by sanding down your piece of wood. This will help the woodburner glide more smoothly over the surface.

Starting Your Project

Test out your woodburning tip on a scrap piece of wood before you start on your project. This will help you get a feel for how the tool works and how much pressure to apply. When you're ready to start burning, apply even pressure and move the tip slowly over the surface of the wood. Don't forget to breathe slowly and evenly — this will help prevent you from getting lightheaded from the fumes.

Once You Are Done

Once you're finished burning, use the sandpaper to smooth away any rough edges. Then, apply a layer of wood glue to the back of your piece (if it's going to be used as decor or a functional item) and let it dry completely before using it.
