Woodburning Trees On A Box

Pyrographic Palm Tree: Part 1
I am drawing an outline of palm trees I am going to woodburn on a box.  This technique is known as pyrography, and thus I am decorating the wood box with pyrographic palm trees.

In this phase of the sketch I am wrapping the palm tree sketch around the corners of the box so it will look 3-D when I woodburn the design.

Here I am drawing the palm tree fronds on the back of the box. I will continue to draw the palm tree outline on all sides of the box in preparation for woodburning, which is how I will create the pyrographic palm tree.

Woodburning A Tree On A Box

I recently finished woodburning a palm tree on the back and the top of the wood box, and now I am beginning to woodburn on a tree with small leaves on the front of it.  I do not know the name of this tree, but I am intrigued with its beautiful and unique foliage.  In the spring this tree gets red flowers on it.
