I finally got around to making a sign and therefore having a better picture for this blog, as well as all other Wooden U related stuff. I had two wood saw cutouts from my grandma's collection of wooden shapes and projects. I copied the font onto the cutout and burned it into the wood. I burned the edges of the cutout as well.

It's been awhile because I've been working on a larger project but I just got my new woodburner in the mail and had to try it out. I cut out a little moon shape with scallops along the outside edge because I wanted to make it look like a piece of live edge wood. Then I drilled a hole in the top so it can be worn as a necklace.
I burned the outside edge and a little on the faces to give it the look of bark.
I could have stopped there but I added the phrase "moon of my life" for all the Game of Throne fans out there. This will probably go to my sister as I don't wear necklaces much. I should have eaten something before starting this because I was really shaky. The words aren't perfect but I just wanted to try it out. The smell took me right back to when I was little and got a woodburner for Christmas so this was a fun little project.
