Fractal Burnt Timber Charcuterie Boards
Fractal wood burning is a process of applying an electrically conductive solution on wood and then applying high voltage electricity through a transformer using two probes. When this electricity is applied, it burns in the wood from one probe to the other. The figures that are created are commonly called Lichtenberg figures or fractal burns. These burns create a lightning like image that is burnt into the wood.
The Charcuterie/Serving/Platter boards are made from either BlackButt Eucalyptus, Stringy Bark Eucalyptus, Spotted Gum and Walnut timber. After burning, I apply either a clear or coloured epoxy resin to fill in the burnt areas before sanding and finishing with a durable, food grade varnish. These uniquely burnt boards will sure be the talk of your next dinner party.
