  • Hello from Florida

    Just wanted to make a semi formal introduction. Ive dabbled in a lot of mediums over the years. Got inspired to take up burning a bit. Tried a couple of projects with a my cheapy soldering iron and decided to invest in an actual burner. Been loving it so far! Here are a couple of skateboards Ive done for collector friends.

    Very nice. Thanks for showing your work. Which burner did you decide on?

        I use the Razertip hand pieces, but my main power unit is a Nibsburner. I was wanting the Razertip, but got the Nibsburner for Christmas, but as it turns out, it is pretty good, so no complaints.

        On the non-wood burning side, did you make the skateboards from scratch? My son asked me to help him build one a few weeks back, but I though the veneering and forms and such would be a bit more than I could handle.

          The shapes are hand cut. You can buy good, uncut blanks here and just make your own. They even have a lot of precut blanks too. All you have to do is sand the finish off and burn away.
