Steps in woodworking project Burning/enamel/Staining? Answered
Alright! So I'm starting a new personal project to create a gift for someone.
I want to create a heart shaped home-made picture frame.
I want to cut out the heart, have it stained, wood-burn their photos onto the heart, and chisel lettering and enamel that and give the whole thing a finish.
Individually I can do each of those tasks, though I'm at a loss as to how to tackle this and which steps to take first.
What process should I take for these steps? Should I burn first, or should I stain first? Should I chisel/carve before or after staining? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
