The bowl is almost finished, but I couldn’t wait to share the progress! I’d be waiting for my new Burnmaster Eagle to arrive so that I could finish up the pyrography. I’ll be writing a review of the Burnmaster Eagle in a few weeks, but for now I’ll just tell ya’ short n sweet… I like it!
This bowl is 13″ x 5″ and it took much longer than I anticipated to burn the entire pattern around the bowl. I think it was worth it though!
I’m by no means I pyrography expert, but I noticed that adjusting the tool presentation while I worked around the piece was very helpful. Also, I made the first and last rows of branding in the vertical orientation. I then switched to a basket weave pattern for the rest of the branding.
Gentle, even pressure is really all that’s needed to put the pattern on the wood.
Here’s the pyrography finished up! I just need to reverse turn it this evening and then it’ll be off to Going Local NC! Don’t worry, there’s still a little something I’m planning on to finish off the piece and it should be up tomorrow!
Oh, if you do this much burning on a piece, plan on smelling like a campfire for the next 24 hours! 🙂
