Wow, never thought of doing that. What tip do you use? And how big of a hole does it make, if you don't mind me asking?

seems like we do more damage with it than being productive, lol!!

I caught a towel on fire with mine thursday night Luckly it didn't hurt anything.
I usually have it on the stand on top of a piece of glass out of an 8x10 picture frame. I put a towel underneath to keep it from scratching the counertop. It fell over and was laying on the towel, & burnt a small part of the towel. Oh well, guess I need to pay better attention to what i'm doing

I use mine to trim up little ends of thread that I find sticking out....careful, though, it's easy to burn the ribbon while you're doing it! I always forget to turn mine off, so I guess I use mine to test my sense of smell..."What's that smell? Oh, crap, I left the woodburner on again!" I left mine on all night the other night...shhhh, don't let DH know or my woodburner will be 'grounded'!

LMAO! These responses are hilarious! I've only used it once, to try to make nice round bottons for my snowmen and maybe eyes, but couldn't get them nice and round, and it made me made. I thought "what the heck to people use these are the time for?" I haven't used it since. I guess I just haven't gotten the hang of it yet.

I use the tip of the chisel one to burn a hole in my center. I usually just make a slit or 2 in it pending on the size.

To entertain my husband.

You should ask my husband what he does with my woodburner. He has engraved every possible thing on my craft table.lol. My wooden clothes pins have his name engraved on them, he has burned a few plastic things with it. OMG I can't leave mine unattended around him...jijiji

My husband also thinks its his toy... Men... I also just burned a huge hole in my carpet last week which made me think of this post. My husband says I did it on purpose because I have been begging for Hardwood Floors. He ordered me one of those flat iron holders to mount to the side of my desk so that it will be in there when its on. He is ssooo bossy!

ETA-- Do not put a woodburner in one of the flat iron holders- Im sure it will burn through. The only way to do this, that I know of, is to line it with something. My husband took the measurements of the inside of the one I have already for my flat iron and will be going to Lowes and have them cut some very thin sheets of steel so he can weld them together to make a small cup to fit inside so the woodburner would not burn through. I just wanted to add this because I dont want anyone spending $50-$60 thinking they can just throw the woodburner in there.
