Great tutorial!! LOVE the pictures. Thanks so much for posting the link. I finished everything to the back and of course with raw edges. I can't wait to try this...maybe tonight Still want that woodburner a matter of fact I have one somewhere...but like everything's easier to go buy a new one than try to find the one that I have
