Lay a piece of graphite transfer paper on the large wooden round and arrange the pattern where you want it. (We folded a few tips of the design over the edge). Tape the pattern in place and use a ballpoint pen to trace the design and transfer it to the wood.
Use different tips on the woodburning tool to create the design in the wood. Experiment with different tips on scraps of pine before filling in designs with patterns.
When using a woodburning tool, work slowly and avoid pressing too hard -- let the tool do the work. When first learning to use the tool, make curved pencil lines on a scrap board and practice following them, especially where the wood grain changes direction beneath the tip.
Use artist’s brushes to fill in different areas of the designs with wood stain in the colors of your choice. After the stain dries, spray on two coats of clear semigloss finish.
If the wood feels rough after the second coat of finish, especially along the end grain around the edges, lightly sand the rough edges without penetrating the finish and apply a third coat.
