Question for the wood burners in the group

Mike Rubes, Apex, NC
>Hi all,

Does everyone free hand draw their designs? What if you have a pattern and you want to get that pattern on the piece and then burn the drawing? Namely, I've got a symbol I'd like to burn in the bottom of a bowl for a friend, but I've no idea how to transfer the design to the wood before I burn it. I will attempt to draw it, but if someone's got a neat-o method of transfering a design from a printed page to the piece, I'd love to hear it.

Here's a pic of the symbol if you were interested.

Thanks!

Mike
