Tips for the Woodburner

Uses for the Woodburner Tips
Our wide selection of tip shapes let you create precise lines and carve realistic feathers and markings. Here are some suggested uses:

Standard: Makes straight lines and burns in veins on feathers for decoys.
Needle Point: Makes fine lines, dots, and burns holes and intricate details.
Feather: Has a sharper point than the standard tip and more acute angle, allowing you to burn fine lines even deeper
Button: Edges are perpendicular to the tip shaft which makes it easier to reach under the neck or beak of a bird by working at a 90 degree angle.
Circle: This tip is hollowed out to burn a circle with its edges and comes in three sizes.
Round: Round tips also come in three sizes and make a completely blackened circle, rather than an outlined circle.
Multigroove: This tip lets you/burn veins and feathers on decoys and is available with 56 lines per inch for medium-sized songbirds and 44 lines per inch which is ideal for larger birds and full-sized ducks.
