Pyrography Woodburning - Poker work Machines

A Short History:

The word Pyrography, is of Greek origin, 'pur' meaning fire and 'graphos' meaning writing, which then easily translates to our more common name of 'wood burning'.

It is the process of drawing a picture on a piece of wood, by burning lines into the surface of the wood in various shapes and intensities, with a soldering iron type tool.

The longer you hold the wood burning pen on the surface of the wood, the greater the charring, thus the darker the colour and the more depth you add. In the old days they used just a piece of heated metal to add patterns to their furniture.
