Hey friends! I recently learned of how extremely dangerous DIY fractal wood-burning is, and wanted to share with y’all in this community.
If you’re like me, you may have seen some videos of people burning neat fractal patterns in boards and tables with some kind of homemade electric rig; what you may not know is that those folks are exposing themselves to brushing up against something with 2000v of electricity running through it. Over thirty people have died, some even killing their partners who tried to help before shutting the power off, and homes have burned down.

Safe crafting! And please spread the word!
