Sometimes you just need to go out of your comfort zone. I’ve been working with intarsia, but do enjoy pyrography as well. A few years back I ended up personalizing our mattock’s for work – mine with 10cm windows containing a dragon (that way I always had a measuring tool on hand), Jeff’s with a bunch of Star Wars emblems, and John’s with a twisted mosasaur skeleton, wrapping around the handle (probably my favorite of the 3).
Anyways – I received a request for custom tap handles. Ok, I’m intrigued… Part intarsia, part pyrography. Woo! I get to break out my wood-burning tools again. Once they’re completed, don’t worry – they’ll be posted here and on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram as well. The suspense!
