I use anything I got laying around ,chisels ,wire brushes , a dremmel ,propane torch , stain ....Tips?
I heard that cedar is bad to inhale like some other woods ( a guy told me he got a nosebleed cutting a piece of kokobolo wood without a mask,YIKES) so being that I'm not a fan of masks or helmets , gloves or glasses...I stick to wood like pine.At the home depot or where ever I root through the pile of scrap wood cuts and if there is nothing there I look in the stacks of lumber for a board that has a really strong and prominent wide grain with no knots. I don't always get really lucky but it's wood so there will always be another piece somewhere...
I take my time and I'll do the burn gig more than once on a piece if I cant seem to get that grain to pop dig? And of coarse a smooth finish before you attack to grain helps (thats the drag part trying to sand all the corners and sides before you play with the fire) but I'm still learning as I go along so ,
mahalo for the encouraging comments!

PNG stuff is like a drug, when you start a piece you're quickly addict!

Very good work on the last one Paul!

Glad I'm getting a good responce my very limited knowlage of PNG had me a little worried about creating a piece thats WAY off base.

Tikiville...I love your PNG mask. Nothing to be fearful about, looks to me
like you nailed it. I always get a little nervous about paint too, seems to
be a pretty fine line between just right and all screwed up
