This is a shoehorn shaft I turned in Arizona and I ran out of kits so I brought it home. I wanted to see what one would like with the Lichtenburg Fractal figures all down it so I burned it and inlaid it with turquoise paint.

it is finished with semi gloss lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

Very artistic Jim.

Now a fellow LJ wants to learn all about it but he is a bit shy of the process.

I think its something he could set up in his workshop reorg which is currently (no pun intended) underway.

Extraordinary, Jim.
Do us one little favor, though, okay? Make us a couple more photos on a dark background, please. Okay? You can load them into a comment box. That’d be great. Just a couple. So we can see it better. So we can get the full effect. Okay? Okay.

Robert: I’m sure you’re very competent, and all. But, I’d be very reluctant to set one of those up for someone else. For yourownbadself, sure. But, for someone else? That seems a huge risk.

Thank you all for the nice comments. I’m glad you liked it. I was very pleased with the pattern from the low variable voltage of my transformer..

Hi Rob, there a lot of videos on fractal burning on You Tube. But if you do make a burner, build it so it can be use very safely. I made high PVC handles on mine so I am far away from the tips. I did 3 demos in the barn this week and I can’t stress that enough.

Hi Mark….........Just for you…......I added 3 shots of the shoehorn in natural light on a darker background. I put a close up of the front and the back patterns.

Cheers, Jim
