This is a wall hanging made from a piece of mesquite slab wood with fractal burned patterns.
It is 7/8” x 6” x 20 ” and finished with Danish oil and then Helmsman Gloss polyurethane.

cheers, Jim

Hey Jim you proved again you can’t improve on nature by letting nature take it’s own course!

I want to try that but I worked in electronics since I was 10 years old and some things still scare me!

Thanks for all the nice comments! I like to hear what you all see in those patterns. There was a lot of interest in it at the guild meeting last night and I’ll demonstrating it at one of our future meetings. I got the okay today to demo it at the shop classes at the high school too.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks, Lee, Ivan, Pets and Kim.

Hi Pete. I think I’ll be handling all the electrodes during the demos. I don’t want to take chances with other people. A screw up can be fatal!!

Cheers, Jim
