    Bernies Fault - turning and burning

    I had been playing around with the idea of getting a wood burning tool because I get alot of grief from family and friends because I have never signed or put anything on any of my turnings. After reading Bernies thread here about the burning and seeing what can be done I contacted a friend in Tenn. I have been buying burrs from, and pulled the trigger and bought myself a Optima woodburning tool.

    See Picture below - It arrived last night and I could not wait to play with it so I took a cracked turning I had sitting around and burned it a bit. I have to say it will come in handy and it is alot of fun.
