While browsing Facebook posts, I saw a wooden artwork display board in the background of someone’s post. They had their child’s artwork displayed on a board that said, “Look what I made”. My wife and I liked the idea, so I got to work.

The woodworking part was easy, I had milled up an oak board for the coffee table I just finished, but didn’t need it. I then traced the phrase from a stencil set I had. Instead of painting the letters as I saw in the original, I decided to break out my wood burning iron. Pyrography has always interested me, but I don’t do it often. I finished the project with spray lacquer, which seemed to darken the wood quite a bit. Since it is a stand alone project, I didn’t mind.

Overall we were very happy with this quick project. I attached some smaller clothes pins on a string and hung it up on the wall in our dining room.
