Wood Burning Fractals

During the research for my Tesla Coil, I spent a lot of time browsing around the very excellent site Tesla Down Under.

There I stumbled upon Peter Terren's wood burning fractals experiments.

That looked like a lot of fun, and I had recently acquired an NST for my tesla coil, so one evening with my good friend Servo, we burnt some fractals into some wood.

I ended up throwing away all the pieces of wood I burned when I moved, but it taught me a lot about high voltage generated fractals... obscure, abstract knowledge that ended up helping me later making 3D fractals melting moist sand into glass.
