Have you found yourself wondering about the options and where to find wood for your pyrography projects? Me too!
That’s why I thought you’d like to learn where to find wood for pyrography and see creative ways to embellish everyday items with wood burning, some of which you may already have in your home, and others you may not have thought of.

Much of the wood burning art you will see is done on rounds and planks because they make a natural canvas that is relatively easy to burn on.
My favorite wood sources are local, either found wood, donated wood from friends, or purchased from a local sawyer.
However, you can find plenty of great places online. Here are a few of my favorites:
Aspen Rustic Creations is where I get all of my aspen rounds. They are always high quality, and easy to burn.
My friends at It’s David and Renee have a Burnables Box with all kinds of amazing wood for you to try!
However, there are many other places where you can find wood surfaces that are not planks or rounds, and some are even free!
Wood handled bottle openers provide a nice easy DIY gift that can be totally customized with your own pyrography art. You can get them here.
Wooden push pins are fun tiny surfaces to burn on and make great gifts as well! I get mine here.
Cutting boards are a wood burning canvas as well! You can even use wooden ones you have in your home, or if you like, you can purchase these online as well. The ones in the photo below were purchased here.
I’ve even found wood surfaces at my local thrift store, like this box in the photo below. Thrift stores are awesome places to find one-of-a-kind projects, just make sure the items are unfinished, without paint, or stain.
Wooden spoons can be found almost anywhere, including your own kitchen. Buy wooden spoons online here
The possibilities are (almost) endless
You can burn on many more surfaces like these:
Wood Hammer handle, or any wood handle
Wooden picture frames
Cork, trivets and panels
Canvas bags and shoes – check out this canvas bag project by my friend Rachel over at Wood Burn Corner
Leather belts and bracelets
Now go look around your house, or the local craft store or thrift store. You don’t really need an excuse, but if you like one, you can use any of the ideas above.
Be inspired, create, have fun!
