Thank you for the swift response. I find I have a lot more control over my burner when I am able to hold it more like a pen. I am left handed though so my grip may be different from a right handed persons. Since the majority of the weight is in the front of the burner to begin with, adding the tape and extra weight at the front doesn't change the way it handled to begin with. Thank you for the tips, I will be sure to use them on my next project!
Wood burning 101 - Techniques and Tricks
You do beautiful work and your tips were very informative. I do have a couple suggestions though. One, I have no clue what hatching is or how its done, that segment of your post was a little vague, II would be interested in learning more about it. Two, I noticed that your instruction was based mainly on the use of the more expensive wood burner, an item most beginners do not own, would be nice to have you share more tips based on the use of the less expensive tool. Something that may be helpful, I to have a cheap burner that gets mighty hot down by the tipped end. I used some silicone tape and wrapped it around the area behind the tip so that I am able to hold the burner closer to the tip without getting burned.
