Woodburning, or pyrography as it's also called.

Haven't done any for a while, but I'm starting to get the urge again.

You can see examples on my web page.

I know you posted this some time back but I just visited your woodburning site and I have to say you do great work! Wonderful works of art.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I'm still an amateur at this stuff compared to some of the real art work I've seen.

If I can ever get my workshop back (it's a warehouse at the moment) I would like to try my hand at making some radio tubes on my wood lathe and then burning the tube ID and brands on them. Talk about engraved bases! Very Happy Maybe even some other radio parts. But that's later on down the road for now.

Cheers, Bob

I've tried a couple of portraits, and quite frankly, I think I suck at it. Laughing I'll keep trying though, but I feel that portraits are not my strong points at the moment.

Cheers, Bob

Long ago in a land far, far away called Indiana, I recall a grade school art teacher telling us a strange quirk of the mind that allowed us to better draw a face from a photo if we turned the photo up side down! It seems like he told us to draw it as we saw it, up side down. I DO recall that it worked for me! Now that I live downunder, I have to turn everything right side up! Laughing

I heard something similar to that. I saw a show on forgers once and some would turn a signature up side down to copy it. Seems that it being upside down it would make you not add to it and make it exact.
