My first attempt at fractal burning .
After seeing some of my buddy’s doing fractal burning I was intrigued with it and just had to give it a shot but I am scared to death of the transformer device (20000 Volt ) and today I thought why not try this with my wood burning kit so here are the first results . I enjoyed making these two samples tremendously as I had some of my favorite music playing and just burning away at random .

I see you joined the rest of the crazies with that fractal burning. LOL. I am very interested in this but I would have to have a hands on demonstration before going any further. I would probably electrocute myself and burn the house down. It sure gives a lot of character to things. Reminds me of spalted lumber somewhat. I’ll be waiting to see what project you use this on first (a box?) congrats on your first attempt, looks great.

Klaus,

Be sure to keep your fingers & other parts away from business end of it…
That high voltage can LEAP through the air to GET YOU!

Just be SAFE! :)

COOL 1st try…

Nice patterns, Klaus! What transformer did you use?
I started with a 9000 bolt neon sign transformer and it burned out or quit working and then I went to a Microwave transformer (2000 volt) and it works real good.

Cheers, Jim

Ah! the life of the artist. Music playing and practicing the art. The question I have is, what is the musical selections?

I read the post and it appears I got a different impression than the previous comments. I believe you did not use the transformer but tried to duplicate the design freehand with a conventional wood burning pen freehand. You can get some interesting designs this way but not the random burning with that the high voltage method does, and also the find detail. With proper precautions it can be safe, I think you saw my setup. Give it a try, much more exciting and (electofrying) !!!!!!!

Looks good, Klaus!
Brian, I understood as you did, that this is faux-fractual burning.

Guilty. I misunderstood also. If you did this with your wood burning kit, I would like to know what tunes you were listing to. Must of had you dancing around the shop. That could pass for fractal burning. This is my speed Klaus, a lot safer.

Wow! Next time I’ll pay more attention. I too misunderstood. I was a bit concerned about you using High Votage!
Maybe if you laid out some firework fuses on the project and lit them it would give you some special effects! LOL!
Nice project Klaus! Your always thinking!
