Wood: To Burn or Carve?

Call me old-fashioned, but I tend to like the look of wood over more “modern” materials such as steel or plastic. Can you really snuggle up in a steel chair? For me, decorative wood accents with burned or carved designs give the feel of a cozy country home, complete with fire crackling and big dogs lounging about. Maybe that’s just me. We have quite a few new projects, using both woodburning techniques and woodcarving techniques. I can’t decide which I like better.

I just love the look of this Carved Heart and Flowers Box. The design is pretty and delicate, but not old-timey. I can imagine storing my modest jewelry collection in this box.

Then again, I’ve never seen quite such a unique woodburned design as this Quilt Pattern Woodburned Box. The box is colored with “oil pencils” which sound like great fun.

What do you think? Is woodburning or woodcarving the more attractive craft?
