Extract from back cover of book:

There are more complex ways to do it, with fancy controls, a hundred different burning tips. But here Dick Armstrong reminds us that the art of woodburning is more in the technique than the tools. Using a single-tip, simple woodburner, he goes back to the basics, starting with the skills that every woodburner should know and then applying them in three projects, The projects are designed to move from the easiest, a lighthouse, to one of medium difficulty, a dilapidated barn, to one that requires some skill, a clipper ship. Every step is illustrated with a clear photo and description. In addition, a gallery of Dick's work gives the reader many ideas for application of these skills.

This is the book for beginning woodburners, but the techniques and experience Dick shares will be valued by pyrographers of every level.

This book uses solid nib pyrography machine.
