How to Wood Burn a Christmas Scene

December 22, 2015


Merry Christmas! This week I pulled out the old wood burner and burned a Christmas scene into a piece of 3/4″ pine. If you would like to make your own, you can download the template for free. Once I had the template, I had to transfer the image onto the wood in order to trace it with the wood burner. The best method I’ve seen for this is using an ink jet printer with some glossy paper. This allows you to print picture out and stamp it onto the wood (since the ink can’t dry on the glossy paper). Once the template was on my piece of wood, I was ready to trace it with my wood burner. This takes time and if you’re new (like me) it can really take a long time. After it was all traced up, I penciled an outline around the entire scene and took it over to the bandsaw were I cut out the final shape. I sanded the sides and the back of wood burning piece and added a little hanger to the back. I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
