I just bought a book from Lee Valley written by a lady from Australia named Sue Walters. It's called Pyrography Workbook.

I can't believe her work - positively breathraking.

I think there's a lot of fun to be had with this art form - which, according to her is having a resurgence. (Started in the Victorian era using hot pokers from the fireplace.)

I think I'll practice a great deal on my okoume kayaks' decks and Greenland paddles. The sapele on the Sea Island may be much too ornate on it's own for burning - lending itself more to onlays a la Krewson.

Thanks again, Kim!

Mac from where it's gettin' flippin' COLD!!
