Resistence doesn t have to be zero, just under 10k or so.

Nice try, but I just took my Fluke multimeter out and measured the resistance of a piece of 3/4” alder. Not even megaohms, it was an open circuit. So, a hot dog sitting on top of a board is fully insulated from the table top.

I’ll clue you in. It’s not just a resistive circuit; it’s capacitive as well. Of course, all I have is an MSEE from UW, so what do I know?
