When you have decorated it with your own woodburned design, a bowl is as impressive on display as it is useful holding a salad. This time-honored craft lends a warm, rustic charm to an object. Any design can be engraved in wood - almost as easily as using a pencil on paper - with a simple heating tool that has a sharp point. From the supplies you need to the rechniques you'll use, the basics are easy to learn and will prepare you for the 30 projects that follow. The Fantasy Flowers Tray looks difficult, but it's one of the easier pieces - almost all the woodburning is outlining and the color is added with oil pencils, which are as simple to use as crayons. For something more challenging try the Art Noveau Clock. The woodburned pattern is beautifully accented with stain and gold foiling. Other projects include a Pearly Dragonfly Chest and a Leaves & circles Photo Album.
