I loved this serving board as it was but I liked it even better after it was wood burned.
As you probably know by now, wood burning is one of my favorite things to do! It’s relaxation at its best!
And, I love seeing the results.
Wood Burning Projects I’ve Done in the Past
I’ve wood burned so many things over the last couple of years using the trace and burn technique. Just trace the design onto the wood piece and then, burn it on. Tracing or stenciling the design onto the wood makes our wood burning experience so much easier!
Sources of Designs for Wood Burning Crafts
Being that I like wood burning, I’m always looking for line drawings and pictures that would look nice on cutting or serving boards, wooden serving utensils and other wooden pieces.
So, when I saw the flower drawings, I thought they would be perfect on a long wooden serving board that I ordered from Amazon. And, I was right! Unfortunately, I made this craft before I had a blog. And, I can’t find the original flower drawings. However, I did find one that is similar on the Hungry JPEG.
Supplies to Create the Wood Burned Serving Board
- Wooden Serving Board. Amazon has a good selection of paddle boards or serving boards. This one measures 10.4″-L By 6″-W By 0.6″-thick and unfortunately Amazon no longer has it in stock. However, here is one that is slightly larger and by the same manufacturer.
- Graphite Tracing paper to copy the drawing onto the board. This tracing paper is terrific for tracing onto wood.
- Wood Burning Tool – I love my Colwood Wood Burner and can’t say enough good things about it!
- Non-Toxic Colored Markers. – If you’re going to serve food on this, please check out the markers the you use!
Simple Instructions to Make the Wood Burned Serving Board
- Trace the flower designs on the board. I used graphite carbon paper to transfer the design onto the wood.
- With your wood burning tool, carefully burn the picture onto the board. A writer nib is perfect for this project.
- With color markers that are useable on wood and non-toxic, fill in the flower petals. I used turquoise and green coloring markers to match my kitchen.
And, that’s all there is to it!
Of course, all we need now is a glass of wine and some crackers and cheese!
