Pyrography Online – New!

Here’s introducing a new site, Pyrography Online. The site has been put together by Fox Chapel Publishing who offer lots of useful pyrography books and magazines.

It’s a great looking site and I am sure is going to develop into a wonderful place for all fellow pyorgraphers to visit. There’s a forum, a reader gallery along with tip and techniques, patterns, videos tools and features.
Make sure you go and take a look!
