Net Galley Book Review : Okay admitt it we all played with woodburning as kids in camp but never thought about it as a hobby. But Racheal has me thinking in a new way about this hobby. It’s a beautifal book and well written and will have you looking at this hobby in a new way. Can’t wait to start some of the projects in the book.Those baby blocks are on my list. Thanks for a 5 Star book) Lisa
