After seeing, and creatively plagiarizing, Mr. Jakosh’s Lichtenberg burner design, I made my own and then built this new home for it. (Thanx Jim!)

Simple poplar with scrap walnut trim. Needed practice burning so made sure I would know what’s inside. This is going to be a fun addition to my shop.

How long did it take to burn that much? It’s very intriguing, all this Lichtenberg stuff.

Try not to be too shocking.

Thanks for posting.

Actual burn time was probably around half an hour or so. I didn’t really pay too much attention to that part. Was having too much fun with it.

I burned the front, back, 2 ends and top. The box measures 16”L x 11”W x 9”H. So, it goes pretty quick once you get started.

Made the mistake of letting wife person see it. Now she wants one just like it for her sewing projects.

Arr Arr Arr…......I love it ….....great design. I was also going to do that but finished the box so it was too late.
No question about what is in the box!! nice work on it, Snowbeast!! What are you using to wet the surface?

Cheers, Jim

Thanx for the nice comments, folks.

Jim – I tried a foam brush but that got it too wet so I switched to the mosquito repellent bottle seen in the second pic. It puts out a nice, fine mist that coats evenly without being too much.
