If you don't have a burning kit, you can still make one that looks like you made it with a burning kit. I made one with my family's last name on it. I took a board (whatever size you want) and used a dremal and wrote out my name on the board. Then I took some black paint and painted in the name. Once that was dry, I stained over the whole board with a nice medium stain and then sealed the wood with Poly when it was done. Viola! Looks just like a one that they sell for $50-$60 but without the price tag.
