This is the last project of the winter season here in Arizona. it is a mesquite bingo money barrel that has been fractal burned all the way around. It also has a dime in the top and a bayonet closure to lock the top on.(Bingo is a dime a game in our park)

It is finished with clear gloss lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

I so want to try this, but my brain wont let me.
Had a bad “Shock” when I was a kid so don’t like electricity very much.
Love the outcome Jim.

I can not agree more with the comments above. Beautiful job. The burning almost looks symmetric.

Looking good Jim, you have just about mastered the burning process. How many Elves have you fried so far?
