Woodburning Koi fish

I haven’t pyrographed anything for a while, so it took some time to get back on track, getting used to holding the woodburner. We moved the furniture around in the living room ( yeah, I’m one of these that love to move stuff around) and now my beautiful spot that I had for woodburning is gone. Sniff.
I tried couple of different places and it seems on the kitchen island was the most comfortable. I have the plug in the right spot, the light is good and the kitchen island is tall enough to make it comfortable working. The only problem is that I don’t have a comfortable chair. We have some old extra tall bar stools but the seat is only wood and it’s not comfortable to sit for a long period of time. Maybe I should try something with a a cushion and a back panel…
Anyway, I have been working on a couple of pieces at the same time ( it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t 🙂 ), so here is one of them:

This cutting board is meant to be only a decoration piece of course. I have used the design from my first oil painting, the Koi fish if you remember.

It would make a nice present I think, don’t you?
