It has proved challenging to brand the curved surface of the stick with the iron, which is designed for a flat surface.  A learning curve also exists with regard to over- vs. under-burning.

 

I have filed small, flat surfaces on practice sticks, and I need to practice a good deal prior to risking a nearly completed stick.

Burn one on a flat piece and then on the round. Post a couple pics :pic:  CAS. Give us a sniff of what the iron looks like too. The suspense is killing me!! :blink:  ;)

Did this a month or so ago. Failed attempts on a stick with cylindrical shape, far from perfect on a filed down flat area. Much practice needed.
