    Here's my latest piece:

    We think it is Cypress wood. It's approx 12 inches tall, 7.5 inches wide, 5/8 inch thick.
    Now the question is - how much should I sell it for?

    Another pic without the flash. It isn't yellow. The color is like the first picture, but there's a stupid glare in the middle. So here's it without the glare [​IMG]

    I looked at a picture and drew it by hand [​IMG]

    And thank you both!
    Woodburning isn't hard at all. You just have to get used to it. It's a little awkward to hold at first. It doesn't take too long to figure out how quickly to move the pen to make it lighter or darker. Just don't go really slow, unless you want a big dark black line! [​IMG] I have one of the cheap kits from walmart, but they make fancy sets where you can adjust how hot it gets.
