Vera's New Crafts- Woodburnings. Different Types of Wood for Pyrography.

Updated on November 14, 2013

Being too busy with real life I haven’t done much writings here recently. Also, my old passion for making my crafts, wood burnings (pyrography) occupied most of my free time.


I have a friend who was very nice to make wood slices for me. Having enough of “raw material” inspired me for new projects. I had birch slices, maple, berry, apple and bass. I like to experiment different types of material and worked even on unusual stuff.


Out of all the possible types of wood for pyrography bass wood works the best. I found out to my surprise that there are several types of maple wood, they differ by their softness.


ReuVera's woodburnings© used in this hub CANNOT be used anywhere by anyone else.

Soft maple wood is easy to work on.

Hard maple wood is a challenge to burn on, and time consuming, but a picture looks great when done

Birch is also hard to burn on, but the final outcome is worth of the labor

Here are some of my burnings on Applewood. Though hard too, but not too bad to work on.

These pictures on birch wood slices stand apart because of a natural feature. See if you can catch it. Let me know in comments.

      Carol, you can buy wood in craft stores, like Michael's, but I find it rather expensive there. You might check your local lumber yard, like ACE stores, they always have some left overs that they might sell very cheap.

      I also do Pyrography. I love your work. I would like to show you some of mine. Where can I purchase wood other than bass wood for my projects?

      Thank you, Pop. I am not even close as talented as you are, being able to combine political seminars with cooking school.
