Looking good. Some of this gets addictive.  ;D

You're getting good. Need a laser next. From the looks of Jeffs photo he must have tried a transformer and grabbed one of the leads.  ;D

I'm using the HIGH voltage transformer on this one. First I put a grove in the wood
to help guide where I want the arc to go.

 

 

Then I wet the grove and hook on the probes and apply power.

 

 

Then I move to the next grove...

 

 

Let the fire fly....

 

 

Make some smoke...

 

 

Touching up...

 

 

Now I need to wait untill the wood drys so I can sand it...

Guys,

Please don't think of me as a safety Nancy.   I'm all for safety, but I don't go around preaching to the choir.

A friend of mine is dead because of this process.  I don't know exactly what happened, and it doesn't matter.  He's gone, and left behind a wife and 2 small kids.

Please be careful during your experimentations.

All I got. Don't flame me for caring......

Number 5... I see so many mistakes after I take a picture of if and
look at it standing up. So much to learn.
