These ares some fractal burn patterns which i created using my home-made lichtenberg machine. It involves alot of trial and error, but once you learn it it throws a wholenother skill into your woodworking game.

Video of how i made the machine and basic use: https://youtu.be/m26c7GqBJPM

I like what you did.

I learned afew things about doing it and that a Neon transformer burns it nicely and not as deep burned trough then the Microwave transformer which burns deep into the wood.

So maybe having both of them for two different things.

I do have a new neon transformer made in China and do not know how to put it all together. Maybe sometime I will meet someone who will do it for me.

Certainly creates a whole new spectrum to woodwork.
Thanks for sharing.

Make a pass over the surfaces with a ROS and 180/220 grit to clean up the charing, those “lightning bolts” will really show some detail. Given the number of tracks on each piece, you really were having fun 8^)
