woodburning initial

Decorate your home with a wood-burned initial plaque.
Step 1
Choose a font from your computer and print the letter to desired size, to fit in the center of the wood slice. 
Step 2
Trace the edges of the letter onto the center of the wood plaque. 
Step 3
Use a ruler and pencil to make horizontal lines that are a ½ cm apart, and then do the same with vertical lines. This should create crosshairs of intersecting lines all over the letter. 
Step 4
To create the pattern shown in the photo, create diagonal lines tilted to the left across every single crosshair. Hold the tool on the wood and count to three and then lift. 
Step 5
Once you have created the first half of the x on every single crosshair in the letter, go back and complete the "x" by making lines in the other direction. 
Step 6
The letter should be full of small "x's". Erase pencil marks.  
Step 7
