Nice new tool Shane. Nothing like the smell of burning poplar in the morning!

Will yours maintain the heat to draw as fast and dark as the video? 

I looked at the link, loved this line in the description:  Made of iron plated tip and stainless steel, ensure the quality of the products and the properties of the stability and reliability

Nice! I need one of those.

I love your enthusiasm. This looks like the perfect wood burning tool.
  • Nice tip

Nice touch. More authentic-looking than some other forms of embellishments.

LOTS of good "How to Woodburn" tutorials on the 'net.

Here are a couple of samples from a 'Burning Basics Video Series' that stood out for me:

Thanks Shane, Many months back I saw your video for the first time, I was inspired and did this for a build I made for someone.

Found one on Ebay for $18.
