I recently got/made a lichtenberg fractal burning machine and have been trying a few different things with it. I found that you can, to a degree, direct the flow of electricity where you want it to go. I used these techniques, and a lot of electricity, to make the shapes on the wood. And then I added sides and made a hole for the clock. The circle one was made using my super easy and cheap circle jig that I posted a while ago. The clock materials I bought from Amazon and then I bent the second hand to give it an added dimension.
They were all finished with spray lacquer
Thanks for looking!

Very cool and more importantly very unique. Should do well at the show.

You did more than excellent with the factal burning, hard to do what you did.

I love your work! Any tips for controlling the arc to make a straight(ish) line? I have a colleague that I’d like to try this for. He teaches fractal mathematics and is retiring in the near future.

Thanks all! Let’s just hope that I can sell these! And the new ones that my wife wants me to make to sell!

Have your say...
