OK, this one was more difficult. I elected to use a different amount of scrap wood. In the effort to keep everything uniform, I decided on something that I expected to be soft. I was disappointed. Overall, pine is a soft wood, but when it comes to burning it isn’t the most appropriate. The grain isn’t fully uniform and while the softer areas take the burn really well, the harder areas are.. well… hard. It was an unexpected challenge. I’ve got one more LARGE piece to complete with this sampling and then I’ll be going back to something a little less time consuming.
