Step 1: What You Need
- a piece of wood
- Sun glasses
- a sunny day
Step 2: Focusing the Glass
Take your magnifying glass and hold it so the glass is parallel the the wood now move the magnifying glass in and out to find the point at which the magnifying glass focuses the sun to a tiny little dot.
Step 3: Engraving Shapes and Letters
I would suggest using a piece of scrap wood and practicing on that until you get good at it.
Step 4: Using a Template
Once you have you picture taped in place you can focus you magnifying glass and start burning along the lines in small sections until the line turns white, when the line you burning along turns white and cracks you can blow on it and and it will leave you with a hole that you can burn a line in. After you burn the paper and blow on it you will need you go over the line so you can see the line in the wood.
Just do that all the way through and it will leave you with the picture on the wood.
