I have a 15000 volt transformer it does not seem to make fast burns or deep veins. Is it the higher volts causing it not to work like online

What kind of wood? How dry? Using baking soda or salt solution? Mine sometimes is slow and very light burns. Grain direction effects the path also. Quarter sawn or face grain?

Different woods. The piece I want to do it cedar but I have spare oak pine cedar. 1 tbls soda per cup water. I brush it on then has sat from 5 minutes to 30 minutes with the same speed of burning. I have to take one take one of the leads and pull off the the wood and make it arc to start it burning then re attach to continue the burn other wise it will not or takes 5-7 minutes to start
