Default Pyrography

I wish to ask why mostly light-colored hardwoods such as sycamore, beech and birch are commonly used for pyrography. However, other woods, such as pine or oak, are less used ? Kindly reply if you know the answer

Jenna, hardwoods do not contain the sap or resin that pine does. Oak can be used and maple,butternut and cherry.

pyrography, is this burning wood to get a design? if so, i didnt know i was so talented. i have learned to do this with saw blades, router bits etc. i wasnt even aware i had this talent, lol.

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.

Hi Jennabutala,

When doing pyrography, I use any wood I can get my hands on. It is true that with pine you have more sap. But oak is a really nice wood to work with. Most have told me to stay away from doing pyrography on plywood, which is what I am known for using. And my burner is just a $14 special at Michael's :-). I would suggest to try each wood and find out what style your pyrography works on each style of wood. I like to use the grains so they flow with my work. Enjoy your wood burning and show us your work. God bless.
