              It does tend to get a lil addicting, the smell of smoke in the morning VICTORY

                Hi, Greg! First off, Welcome!!! I checked out your pencil drawings. They are really nice. You should be a natural at wood burning. Once you get use to the pens and working with wood grain. I bet you pick it right up. You might like burning on paper also since you already draw. Please keep us posted. As everyone has said have FUN playing with your new toy. Thanks for sharing.

                      Greg,

                      I just checked out your pencil and tattoo work, and I agree that you should be able to hit the ground running.

                      My only advice is try burning on Basswood, or (my favorite) Baltic Birch - you can pick up 1/8" to 1/4" sheets of Birch from Ebay, better lumber companies or cabinet shop suppliers or as a last resort, some hobby shops (generally pretty expensive there).

                      Before you begin burning, sand the heck out of the wood until it's as smooth as a baby's butt. I usually go down to 320 grit on the birch. It makes for much smoother and consistent burning.

                      Best of luck.
