This book was very precise in giving instructions on how to start woodbutning. It was simple and easty to read.

Purchased for grandson to include with a wood burning kit for Christmas. This book was disappointing from the standpoint that it had very few patterns and the patterns weren't easy. For a beginner, it would have been nice to see more patterns that were easy. Also, this book shows the expensive wood burner that has the rheostat ...not the inexpensive "stick" wood burner that most people would want to start with just to see if wood burning is something they might want to delve deeper into. As a crafter who has used the more inexpensive model of wood burner, I had expectations for a "basic" or "beginner's" book. This was not is.

I was looking for something to help me learn wood burning basics...not this book. It's filled with pictures of the authors finished products....not the basics of what tip does what, or how best to use them. I'm sure someone found this book highly useful, but not for me.

I'm not new at wood burning, but this book expanded my knowledge even more. I especially like the simple line drawings and the growth I can add to make them mine. If you haven't tried to burn wood yet, this book is a great place to start.Dottie

My Nephew is getting into wood crafts and I thought this might be great book to help him further his knowledge! Good, basic book and easy to follow!

The book is okay, but as a basic book I was looking for something with more information on how to choose tips, how to hold the pen correctly. How fast/slow to move the pen, how much pressure is needed to get good clean lines. What wood works best for what type of projects, and I just didn't find it in here. The project in the book are okay but I think I will try another book.

A beginner could look in this book and see that the projects are sloppy and are not interesting. Projects could be more interesting. I have seen better.A Basic Disappointed.
