for this particular piece i bought the wood from Hobby Lobby when it was on sale. But a lot of my work is from wood that i have found somewhere... My "Dad" piece was done on a weathered piece of wood that was leftover from a project I did.. it was the first time i used my wood burning kit.. that was about 5 years ago. When I was a kid, I used to use a magnifying glass and the sun to do some pyrography...I do not recommend this. Here is an example: Brown Handwriting Rectangle Wood Font

"bass" wood is popular for burning projects. Buy enough to practice on to get your style and temperature settings that suit you and your style. Hard woods such as poplar, oak, mahogany, etc are a bit more of a challenge, but can be done.
Hobby stores carry Bass Wood in many sizes. White birch plywood is available in my walmart, which will also work.
