When I was still using the Wood Burner of Death
, I used a cookie sheet, like this:
You can burn directly on the metal. Nothing goes on the sheet except the wood burner and whatever you're working on at that moment
. Keep bows, korkers, etc. OFF OF THE SHEET unless you're working on them.
Other people use different surfaces. I liked using this because the edges prevented the wood burner from rolling off somehow. And I always
forgot to turn it off, and it was fine.
