Pyrography stroke guide. Just happens to be the other half of something I've already Pinned quite some time ago but none the less imformative for all that. Also a very good link to a lady with loads of experiance ;)
Making the Fantasy Street Sign - It didn't cost too much for all the materials for this project. Other than the wood the only things you need are a wood burning tool, a multi-tool (to finish the edges), wood stain (£9.99), screws and large copper pipe brackets. And 10-15 hours of your time of course!
