Re: [BKARTS] Wood Burning

Have you thought about laser cutting? It can be done cleanly or not so cleanly with a burned look to the edges. Go talk to the folks at your local trophy shop.

Subject: Wood Burning


I have a new book that will have wood covers. I'd like to burn the
title into the front cover. Does anyone here know how to go about
having a custom branding iron or die made? I'm hoping to be able to
heat the die or iron over a torch and then burn the wood with it.

Any ideas?
