Extreme Woodburning


Brad Russell and the rather beautiful results of an extremely dangerous practice – connecting the 2000V transformer from a microwave oven to sheets of wood painted with sodium bicarbonate: tree-like electrical discharge patterns known as Lichtenberg figures which he then overlays, fills, colours and varnishes into art pieces.

    This practice is extremely dangerous and has caused a few deaths already, please dont promote it! Just google news “Lichtenberg wood danger”

      Seconded. Uninformed practitioners following YouTube videos on how to do this with the transformer from a microwave oven are dicing with instant death. A 2000 Volt supply takes no prisoners.

      This is no different to promoting Russian Roulette.

      But they are not promoting it. They are saying it’s extremely dangerous. Calm down grandmas
