The recipients of your gifts will never forget who created them, or for what occasion, or on which date, when you add a personalized message burned into a short piece of iron-on veneer edging. By burning the message onto edging, rather than the project, you don't have to worry about making a less-than-perfect "burn" on the actual piece. And, you can cut the edging to a custom shape, or even stain it a different color. Before applying edging with an iron to bare wood, bevel-sand its edges to prevent catches and lifting.
