As a kid, I always wanted to have a wood burning kit. They looked so cool. However, my parents never bought one for me. We were poor, and that was kind of an odd purchase....so I get it. I also now get the fact that wood burning tools get SUPER DUPER HOT! I don't know if I'd let my kids play with one!?!? ha ha A couple months ago I saw a wood burning tool at Dollar General in their beefed up craft section for only $10. At first I resisted the urge to get it. Do I really need another art related hobby when I have trouble keeping up with creating "real" art? When I went back and saw that it was no longer there...I realized I had missed my opportunity. I went to four different locations to see if I could find it...AND I DID!! So I bought it. Here is a video of my first experience using a wood burning tool!!
