Introduction: Wood Art

I made this for my wife, lover of the tree of life and the moon.

Step 1: Picture

First, find a drawing that you like and print it out as large as you want

Step 2: Outline

Next use a razor to outline the drawing into the wood

Step 3: Burn

After the drawing is outlined by a razor I used a router to define the outline. Once it is as deep as you want take a soldering pen and burn your design into the wood!


Good job.. another thing you could do is use a dremel tool with the carving bit and cut the design than take a torch and burn around the design... so it stands out...

I like that a lot, reverse the negative space. May have another carving in my future!

There are special pens for burning designs into wood and that would be the safest to use so you won't burn the entire piece.

Yeah, they sell like a whole kit for wood burning at Target!

What type of wood was it that you used? Did you have it specially cut or was it something that you ran across somewhere?

it was a find from a back roads garage sale, $10. If you are near woods I'm sure someone is cutting. Not sure what type of tree though, sorry.
