Wanted to share this since some people are using Pine wood.
I think the only reason to use Pine is that it is cheap.

The against for me are:
- hard to burn because of the grain
- smells bad (and has lots of smoke)
- not healthy to burn according to this: http://www.sawdustconnection.com/Pyrography-101-Tutorial-Pyrography-Safety.htm

This already sold me to not use it - I actually have a half done big piece that I am not thinking of completing.

But if you are still not convinced then see how the work looks after some time - the Pine photos attached are a year and a half apart, the cutting board is a year and 4 months apart. Both works have a layer of gloss on top (the same kind of gloss actually).

Been a while since I shared my work (warning lots of pieces).
I mostly worked on small 10x10cm (3mm) signs (Poplar plywood) with a magnet on the back

Big one - 40x70 cm
Based on "Day and Night" by M.C. Escher
Used 5 types of wood (playing on their natural color):
1. Poplar wood - the middle 
2. Beech wood - the bottom left
3. Oak wood - the top right
4. Poplar plywood - all other visible parts
5. Okoume plywood - all the parts were glued on the back to one piece of plywood (you can see it between the pieces)

The angles were on purpose not straight lines, and the woods are not the same depth giving the work a 3D look.

The other part of my newest work
I have found the great combination of 3mm Poplar plywood, fridge magnets and double sided sellotape. Burn the plywood and attach the fridge magnet via the double sided sellotape and you get a custom made fridge magnet.

All these are 10x10 cm in size and only needed a 5x5 cm magnet attached on the back.
