A fast and simple project I completed today. The box is very basic since I wanted to focus on my burning.
The box is maple and it is 5×7x3-1/2”.
I took the photos about an hour ago and I always email to existing customers that have provided me with their emails. Sold it fast. I now know what I will be working on this week…!

I haven’t gotten that radical with my burner yet. Very cool. I have only played with mine a couple times. How are you getting the lighting all in different spots. You must be moving both probes all over the place. I have only ever done it in a few spots.

Very cool – reminds me of the scene in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty where the vines grow up to cover the castle. Congratulations on the swift sale – somebody will be getting a real gem.

How did you finish the inside?

Thanks for posting

That’s some beautiful burning! Having dealt with high power microwave antennas and wave guides in the past, I have serious respect for the lethal potential. I’m keeping this sort of art on a way-back burner. You guys can have it!

Thanks guys…
Devon… I hand hold the probes and move to different locations. A lot of trial and error on many scrap pieces.
Leafherder… the inside is just the smooth wood with the lacquer finish. I felt that it would be everkill to also burn the inside.

I agree…it is not for everyone and some people should stay clear of doing it.

I have a healthy dose of respect for mine. I stand on a rubber mat, put my work piece on a rubber mat that is on a rack so it does not sit in standing water. I have heavy insulated linesman gloves. I use insulated probe handles. It is a tremendous amount of fun, but like any of our wood working tools it can seriously mess you up or kill you the minute you don’t respect it. After having used it a few times I have come to appreciate it but safety first.

Very nice Greg

I must look up the definition of simple I think I have a incorrect understanding of the word (hint hint!)

Love this box !

Good job on the burning but too dangerous for me and I will have to stick with my method.
