Wood Burning uses a simple Wood Burning Tool and has easy-to-learn techniques to help you add distinctive designs to a variety of bare-wood projects. It is also known as Pyrography or pokerwork. The term means “writing with fire”, from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing). This is a fun project for women and men, and even kids (under adult supervision, of course). Luckily, the start up costs are cheap, and it’s an easy hobby to learn.
