Another one I put the first coat of finish on last night.

It's a very nice size and shape, from a Maple fork, and I was messing around with creating my own Toxic green tips and butt cap ( Blue Sharpie with Fluorescent Yellow over top of it ) with a coat of Minwax Provincial stain, then rattle can poly, with some wood burned bands.....it is friggin HARD to burn straight lines on wood, in a circle.

I might sand it all the way back to raw wood and start over?

Dunno yet.

Looks good from here! Don't "fix" it. That's the character of wood burning. I've done a bit of pyrography. Straight lines are tough. That tip hits the grain and wants to run off course. You can draw a line that you are happy with and then trace over it lightly with an Exacto blade. Use a fine point or blade type burning tip and then go over the cut. That gives the burning tip a track to run in and can help from wandering. You can go over that with a bigger tip if you want.
