Summary

Do you believe in the saying, “The best person to guide you is the one few steps ahead of you!”?
 
While doing my Engineering, I realized this fact that just before the exam if you require minimal, to the point, useful and applicable information to pass the examination, your friend/colleague who has gone through the subject and appeared for the exam just last week is the best Go to Person.
 
That person may not be the SME (Subject Matter Expert) like the professors teaching for years but is the best bet to solve your immediate problem.
 
So are you a beginner in Pyrography or Wood Burning & looking for a friend and colleague for informal guidance? Your search for that colleague ends here. I sincerely want to take you through that first step and prepare you for your first Pyrography Project!
 
Why Pyrography?
 
Of all the crafts I have practiced, Pyrography is the most value for money. It gives me immense satisfaction and serves the purpose for which I practice the art on the weekends. (i.e., to unwind from my regular job)
 
The best part is this art has got something for everyone.
 
If you are a beginner, get a scrap wood and use your existing soldering pen to start the artwork. Later, you can shift to a proper burner. If you like calligraphy, you can burn letters. A friend of mine is a space enthusiast, and he is making space ships!
 
With experience, you master the art of shading, which gives depth to the artwork. Drawing hair, fur, or skin of an animal takes time, but it is worthwhile to put the effort.
 
What I love about this skill is that it makes one of the best presents for the loved ones. As the art ages with time, it leaves a memorable piece of history to your loved ones.
 
About the Book
 
It is not a traditional book but an effort from your friend to present the experience and discussions while learning this art in the last few years. 
 
I have made many wood and leather burning projects over the years and interacted with fellow crafters. This book is the crux of all those learnings and experiences over the years.
 
This book provides a minimalistic approach to the information required to start your first Pyrography project. It covers:
 
Introduction to the art: The history and steps involved
 
Tools: All about tools involved: Detailed instructions on using Wood Burner including different tips
 
Designing, Tracing, and Shading: I must say the shading part only comes by practicing!
 
Coloring, Polishing, and Finishing
 
Safety Instructions: Very important and highlighted all through the book
 
 Step by Step instructions on 10 starter projects with pictures
 
Frequently Asked Questions (All the ones I could remember and not covered in other chapters)
 
Sample Designs: Mandala, Tiger, Dragon, and more.
 
I still remember the initial doubts I had and the tips which helped me.
 
This book is for people who are in their first lap of Pyrography journey and want to have a holistic idea of processes, tools, and need help in their initial projects.
 
I have included photographs of realistic projects of beginners explaining the process and standard operating procedure while starting.
 
So, what are you waiting for? Get this updated book and start your Pyrography Journey Today!

    The acclaimed artist and architect shares a strolling, personal tour of a city that has become his creative muse and home away from home.   Over the years, Danish architect and artist Mikael Olrik has developed a special relationship with New York City, finding endless inspiration in the vibrant and ever-changing metropolis. In Walks in My New York, Olrik shares his fascinating perspective on New York life through a combination of watercolor, photography and text.   Olrik explores the city with the broad view of an architect, the specificity of an artist, the straight-forwardness of a photographer, and the companionable text of a diarist. He captures everything from street scenes of everyday life to pastoral views of Central Park and landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge. Small maps accompany each entry and act as a sort of ‘GPS’ in print.

    Who Goes There

    The author of Dalek I Loved You charts his travels through England and Wales tracking down locations used in Doctor Who, both classic and new.   Being an odd kind of show, Doctor Who’s locations too are odd. This is no glamorous trip. Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, anyone? A flooded china clay pit in Cornwall? As he travels, so Nick Griffiths discovers another side to his well-trodden country, which is no less evocative. Then he goes to the pub.   As in his previous memoir Dalek I Loved You, the travel writing is backed up by Nick’s childhood reminiscences and contemporary musings. A companion website offers photographs from the trip, a Google map of the locations, and details of the nearest pub. In this innovative way, readers are invited to follow in his footsteps. Who Goes There isn’t just for Who fans, it’s a very funny book for anyone who fancies a trip off the beaten path.  Praise for Dalek I Loved You   “A very funny book for anyone who grew up wearing Tom Baker underpants. I know I did.”—David Tennant “An unadulterated nostalgia-fest written with fun, wit and love.”—Doctor Who Magazine “He conjures up just how mind-blowing it was for an ordinary suburban kid to be transported to a realm of danger and rampant sci-fi imaginings.”—Financial Times  “If I am getting carried away, it is the fault of Griffiths’s awfully charming memoir of boyhood and Doctor Who, with its deft evocations of eight-year-old invincibility and embarrassing school discos as well as arguments about Cybermen vs Autons or Jon Pertwee vs Tom Baker. Griffiths’s chatty, self-deprecating style is disarming.”—The Guardian

    The Cannibal Queen - A Flight...

    The New York Times–bestselling icon of the techno-aviation thriller takes to the skies in this memoir of a great American adventure in an open-cockpit biplane.   It was a bird’s-eye view of America—and the trip of a lifetime for author Stephen Coonts and his fourteen-year-old son. But even for Coonts, who had clocked 1,600 hours as a naval aviator and was the recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross commendation, this was a first. He’d be flying closer to the earth than he ever had before. His big yellow wood-and-canvas bird was the Cannibal Queen, a Stearman open-cockpit biplane built in 1942. Destined for the scrap yard, it was rescued and restored for what Coonts would call his “Stearman summer.”   On a clear June afternoon in 1991, Coonts and his son took off to see the country the same way the barnstormers flew their Jennys: with a map and a compass. Coonts followed highways, railroad lines, back roads, mountains, rivers, and landmarks. For the next three months, seeing old friends and meeting new ones, he touched down on the diverse landscapes of each of the forty-eight contiguous states to record the stories of the American countryside, its spirited people, and its rich history.   Soaring from big cities to the heartland, experiencing everything from Bourbon Street jazz and small-town barbershop quartets to greasy spoons and backyard barbeques, the author of Flight of the Intruder and The Art of War captures not only the singular thrill of biplane aviation, but a nostalgia for the simple pleasures of an America thought lost and forgotten. Stephen Coonts found it, and in The Cannibal Queen he shares every exultant moment.  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Stephen Coonts, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

    On 1 June 1939 His Majestys Submarine Thetis sank in Liverpool Bay while on her diving trials.  Her loss is still the worst peacetime submarine disaster the Royal Navy has yet faced when ninety-nine men drowned or slowly suffocated during their last fifty hours of life.The disaster became an international media event, mainly because the trapped souls aboard were so near to being saved after they managed to raise her stern about 18 ft above sea level.  Still the Royal Navy-led rescue operation failed to find the submarine for many hours, only to rescue four of all those trapped.  Very little is known about what actually happened, as the only comprehensive book written on the subject was published in 1958.Many years have now passed since the Thetis and her men died, for which no one was held to be ultimately accountable.  However, a great deal of unpublished information has come to light in archives throughout the United Kingdom and beyond.  After four years of painstaking research Thetis; The Slow Death of a Submarine explores in minute detail a more rounded picture of what really happened before, during and after her tragic loss.  In doing so Tony Booths book also takes a fresh look at culpability and explores some of the alleged conspiracy theories that surrounded her demise.The result is the first definitive account what happened to HMS Thetis  and her men  a fitting tribute, as the seventieth anniversary of her loss will be on 1 June 2009.
