I never knew you could get that effect from electrocuting the wood. How did you do that? Ive got to try that.

Andy,

Do a search for Lichtenberg Fractal Woodburning. There are several videos on Youtube showing how to do this.

I’m thinking of trying this on some of my Ringmaster bowls. If I ever find some time.

I just bought a used microwave, tore it apart, and scavenged the transformer so I try to do the same.

Nice work.
