    How long did this take

    Omg I have to try this!!

    I did this to before it was fun :D

    I tried this and it didn't work. My magnifying glass is a cheap crappy one would that effect the results?

    ya i would suggest getting a stronger magnifying glass

    I love this... Except instead of engraving I made a fire by accident... Lol

    Nice 'ible. Clear and simple instructions. I find myself writing this on a lot of instructables, but that's because it is so true! I especially like how it is a simple idea. I discovered this myself a couple years ago, but never thought to print out a design to burn into it, thanks for the tip!

    Wow that is so cool I never would have thought of that

    Been doing house numbers for years, gotta have dark sunglasses, or you will see spots, from the bright focus point. (not good for the eyes) Charles

    this is a very good ~ible.. innovative..

    Great job - this is a very cool idea!!! I want to do this with my son!!! I almost bought him a kit from the store today - using a magnifying glass sounds much better and more fun!

    Please before you do this go ahead and make sure you have some sunglasses on, I remember doing this as a kid and I actually burned my cornea a bit and now I have a cornea burn spot when I blink, so a fair warning, if you're going to do this for a long period of time please wear sunglasses.

    thank but I cant take all the credit because i just saw some one engraving names and i started engraving pictures

    Oh its happens but that does not the denies the fact the you did this so Cheers :).
