    COOL! I have seen some amazing things done with wood burning.
    It should be a fun hobby.

    I love it! Having the skill and desire to make art is a wonderful thing.

    Keep it up and you may just have a great career in the making.

    I think i might make a design around the edge before i stain it.
    Quite disgusted the tool cracked already. I need a better one.

    We have a running joke here that I would get lost in my own back yard without a map and a seeing eye dog.

    I would so buy a bunch of silly signs to mount on a post in the yard!!
    Things like....
    HOUSE
    CHICKENS
    GARDEN
    ALLEY
    WALK PATH

    You get the idea lol. Pointing out the obvious.
    I can laugh at my own BAD sense of direction.

    My Mom always turns the wrong direction if there is a choice! Any way, if you have signs, visitors will know where to go. That is what ours are for, other than decoration. And to keep me busy this winter!

    Mine would be just funny since my yard is less then 1/2 acre.

    I was thinking of having a pole with distances to different cities like on MASH.
