Retrospective: In the Runemaker's Workshop
At craft fairs and demonstrations however, an electric pyrograph was used for safety reasons. Each piece was embodied with its runic value by an appropriate ritual as it was branded.
A gloss or satin finish is most attractive for the majority of woods, but there are some that look better with a matt surface.
The rune boxes were hand made from scrap timber and off-cuts from local businesses and lumber yards.
The lids were decorated by hand in contrasting varnishes and acrylic
paints. Standard boxes illustrated here bore the Runemaker's personal bindrune of Raido-Wunjo-Othila. Individual designs
The boxes were sectioned and fabric lined - again with recycled materials.
Each set was supplied with a matching rune casting bag, and a CD featuring one of the Runemaker's eBooks. The individual provenance of the rune set - the wood, where it was found, the date and serial number - was recorded on the inside of the lid.
