These are just some Lichtenburg figures that I framed with some scrap mahogany and clear coated. I used my Home-made Lichtenburg machine to create the figures if you are interested in making the machine Here is a video

and the method I used to “frame” them though simple can be found in this ( ) video, in which I make Lichtenberg coasters.

I love this process although I haven’t had the nerve to build my own as yet.
There is an old microwave oven in my shed that doesn’t get used and is just waiting to be dismantled.
Just need to find the courage. I had an electrical incident as a young teenager and am now very wary.
Thanks for the video link. and thanks for sharing this.

Apologies if this is an inappropriate question … But do you ever do this on blank wood for a fee? I mostly make picture frames and I’m going to frame a pic I bought on vacation in Hawaii. Something about this looks like coral and would be awesome for the side (or sides) of a frame. However, I do not want to build the set up and skill required to do this (so many other things to work on right now).

Is this something you’d be willing to do for a fee? I’m not picky on wood species, the picture would work well with anything from maple to hickory or cherry (but not white oak, just finished a frame with that and it was not my fav wood to router).

Beautiful, I find this process and the resulting images fascinating – but like BobWemm I am reluctant to try it myself. I have done ceramics, enameling, glass blowing, glass fusing, and metal fusing/casting – comfortable working with fire and heat up to 2000 degrees, but the voltage involved in this process makes me nervous. Like EngineerChic I would prefer to pay for this type of work. :)

Thanks for sharing
