I woke up to this article on the morning news;

http://www.azfamily.com/story/37240074/family-warns-about-dangers-of-fractal-burning-after-man-electrocuted-in-chandler

I don’t know about the rest of you all, but, I try to stay away from things that might kill me.

There are several Lumberjocks on this site who are doing this and the projects look great – I just don’t think I would trade my life for a cutting board.

This guy does a pretty good job of explaining how it can be dangerous and how to do it safer.

Thanks for posting this DS, I’ve seen the designs before but never knew what it was about. Doesn’t look like anything that I would want to try…..

Wow, just wow on this tragic tale of loss.
