Pyrography art on lathe experiment

MINDLESS BORING:Pyrography, wood burning on lathe experiment. Having a large magnifier glass above my lathe to view the work piece made this wood burning, turning, experiment possible. Pyrography art, or wood burning is usually done with an electrically heated pen with different tips and shapes that help the artist draw lines and shades on wood. This is an experiment on my logan lathe, that occured one day late afternoon when i rolled the shop door up, and the sun hit the lathe in just the right spot. Repeatability might be an issue but i could repeat this lathe turning Pyrography experiment the same time of day all that week. = SHARE ROCKNTV1
