These are 1/2” natural edge locust fractal burned wall hangings that are cut to the golden ratio of 1 : 1.618. They are 6 1/2” x 10 1/2”. They are finished with Danish oil and gloss poly!.

cheers, Jim

Starting to like some cactus trees. Those would look good in Arizona. I agree, looks like you’re having fun.

Thanks, guys. Every one is s surprise!! This was intended to be a book matched piece, but all the burning took place on the edges so I changed the approach and did a series of low voltage burns.!

cheers, Jim

The beauty of these Jim are that you can never be sure of exactly what you’re going to get, you won’t be disjointed with this pair, getting all tricky on us mate using the ‘golden rule” ;)

Thanks Pete. I was reminded of the golden rectangle and the golden ratio at our last turning meeting. Michael Gibson was demonstrating making teapots and showing how he used a Fibonacci gage to layout the curve of the teapot to the eye pleasing ratio the gauge produces I got min out and used it for these rectangles.

Hi InFoGiLy. I made my burner from a microwave oven transformer. Here is the project for the redesign: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/395729

Nice work Jim…They also have an artistic appeal.
Also that natural edge looks good. Have you done anymore demonstrations at the High School?

Regards,

Cliff.

I’m still fascinated by the burning process.

Nice project.

Great work Jim. I imagine you making these on a dark and stormy night with the work pieces strapped to a table and you wearing a white coat and electrodes in your hand waiting for a lightning strike.
