Default Re: Help! V-cuts stink

The woodburner cuts and seals. I'm too accident prone to own one though. Many of my online bow making friends have dropped them in their lap or on something and burnt/ melted stuff. I just know I'd end up in the ER. I use a good old fashioned lighter to do my Vs even. They turn out well. Get some scraps and practice. fold in half, cut at a 35-45 degree angle, barely open the fold back up and swipe your lighter across both halves of the V at the same time. You'll get it
