My Supply List:

  1. Wood Burning Tool
  2. TWO Cedar Planks (one for practice)
  3. Transfer Paper
  4. Sand Paper
  5. Pencil 
  6. Varnish (optional)

So my goal for this project is to successfully burn this design that I drew onto this plank of wood! It might be hard to make it out in this picture, but if you look closely, you will see 3 deer and our last name, Lueddeke, incorporated into the branches of the trees.


I found this tool at Michael’s for $30. Mine came with several attachments for different wood burning techniques, but you can get a more basic one for cheaper. Mine even came with stuff to do soldering, which is pretty neat.
