I've just really started getting in to it. I use a Walnut Hollow VersaTool. This was my first piece. I wanted to jump in a little over my head to see if I could handle it Not bad I don't think and I really enjoyed doing it. Learned a lot about the process and what I could do next time to be better. This is a bamboo cutting board I did for a friend for last Christmas. She loved it. I'm looking to start doing some burning on some walking sticks I've made and maybe some leather burning.
