Wood Burning in Slow Motion!
For this project I collaborated with my brother T.J. Roberts. He is a local electrician in Fresno, California.
He is constantly building things in his garage whether its working with wood or taking apart electronics.
He saw some videos where people were pulling parts out of a microwave to electrify wood and leave cool designs burned into them, He decided he wanted to do the same.
I thought the idea was cool and that he should do it, sure enough within a couple days he's posting videos of him burning wood.
Once I saw it for myself I knew that would be something awesome to see in slow motion.
We shot outside at night time so we could see all the bright light and colors that the electricity produces. I added an extra 500 watt light so it wouldn't be too dark.
Check out this behind the scenes video that gives an example of how this machine was put together.
This has been an extremely fun project to do and has been a huge learning experience.
Here are some photos I took during a couple sessions.
