Lichtenberg Wood Burning

When it comes to designing and working with wood, we are reminded of modern furniture and gallant decoration or other woodworking art projects.

Lichtenberg wood burning is an innovative method to design on wood by burning it with a high voltage of electricity.

This phenomenon was first introduced by the German physicist George Christophe Lichtenberg.

The Lichtenberg design is, in fact, a kind of design like tree branches. That being said, by evacuating the high voltage of electricity inside the insulating material, creates a miniature form of lightning.

Fractal wood burning and electric wood burning art are other names of this art.

How To Do Lichtenberg Wood Burning

As we mentioned, high voltages are used in this method, which is a type of burning on the wood.

The method is very simple; there are two numbers of connectors that we pin with a huge potential difference in the two points of the wood.

This voltage causes the burning of wood with a random figure.

Usually, before applying the electricity to the surface of the wood, we soak it with a solution of water and salt or water and Sodium bicarbonate. After a few minutes, when the solution has reached in Depth of the wood, the voltage is applied.

The figure will be different, by switching the connectors, changing the voltage or the amount of it, and the change in moisture content.
