This was a project from my first woodworking class. To be clear, not only did I have nearly one-on-one instruction--it was actually one on two that day--but I also had unfettered access to a full workshop with all of the best power tools... it was heaven. I have considerably less at home.
Did I ever tell you I published a book of horror stories? I did, two of them. I don't do that anymore, I've pretty much sworn off it forever, but this is a pretty cool wood burning I did of the logo I made up for the anthologies. So at least there's that.
Pennywise woodburning. And indeed that is cat vomit in the corner of the picture. My cats believe there is nothing like vomiting on fresh MDF, especially right before I take a picture.
This was kind of a bummer--I woodburned the shit out of this tabletop, but there was some kind of reaction with the stain I used, which caused all those beautiful dark spots to turn white. Stupid me thought maybe I could fix it if I sealed over it, like the seal would re-darken those spots. I was mistaken. Live and learn.
