I know AAW has come out and strongly encouraged turners not to use the Lichtenberg pyrography technique to embellish their turnings.  I read the article in this months American Woodturner and found it to be very informative and a GREAT reminder of the dangers this technique has.  That being said, I believe that I do take the necessary precautions to ensure that I follow the necessary safety precautions when I use this process.  With that being said, I have attached two pictures of two of my most recent turning using the Lichtenberg pyrography technique.  Both turning are from some Madrone that I pick up from Reed Gray (aka Robohippy) at the national symposium in KC this year.  Both were turned while the wood was still very green and thus have some wonderful movement in them.  The first turning is 11 W x 3H.  The second turning is 11 W x 10 D x 2 H.  C&C welcomed.

The pieces look good  Thumbs Up
The one critique that I have mentioned to others is this.
Get rid of the clear plastic stand.
It detracts form the piece and the overall photo.

I like them Steve. I may copy the position you put the burnings in the bowl if you don't mind.

I have stayed around the rim with my burnings but like where you put yours so I'll do some planning for the next project.

I like it a lot Steve.

I have had an idea for a while about how to maybe make it do what you want but I do not have one.

I am thinking if a pattern was put on the wood and some gentle shallow cuts made and then flooded with the water maybe the arc will follow the pattern?

I would like to see if anyone will try it.  Thumbs Up
