Today I'm going to talk about my wood burning tool. I've had a few questions about what I use when I make my baby teethers and I thought I'd clear up a few of them :)
This here is my current wood burner. I found it at a craft store (I believe it was AC Moore, but I'm sure you can find them at Joanns). It is a Walnut Hollow, and I love it! Lookie at all the little attachments:
It can be found for under $10 on Amazon here. But if you do a basic search for wood burning tools on Amazon you can come up with several options, a few of which have even more attachments. I find that I don't really need more than what I have here though. The Walnut Hollow also has an 'On' and 'Off' switch, which can come in handy.
This is the tool I began with:
It was purchased at Home Depot, and while it certainly does work, it only had the one tip and I found I quickly grew out of it. It does not have an 'On' and 'Off' switch. Here is a project that I created with my Weller:
See? Not so bad, but it would have been easier with more tip options.
And here is my most recent baby teether made with the Walnut Hollow wood burner:
And if you are interested in my tutorial for an all natural baby-safe (olive oil and bees wax) finish, you can find it here!
I hope that clears things up! I truly love this hobby :) I'd love to post more about it!
As always, let me know if you have any more questions and I'll do my best to answer them!
