Fractal Burning

“The Lichtenberg Effect”

Where Electricity Meets Timber

Here at Rustic World Timbers we have recently perfected a technique whereby we can decorate timber using electrical volts.

This process is known as ‘Fractal Burning’ This unusual technique involves using 10,000 volts of electricity, we have perfected a technique where we tap electrodes at two ends of recycled Australian Timber sending current throughout the wood leaving a stunning visual effecting likening a lightning bolt throughout the timber.

We then sand and fill and polish the timber leaving a rare effect that is hard to find.

We can use this technique to produce wallboards, benchtops and lining boards.

Prices vary as per client requests.

David made us an amazingly beautiful timber bench top using fractal burning technique for our mudbrick bathroom. So happy with his service and the end product.

WE used Rustic World Timber when renovating our home in Eltham in 2021. Dave has great product, a superb yard and workshop and if you book some time to visit is very accomodating and knowledgeable. Our finished product is indeed rustic, on time and on budget. Highly recommend Dave and his business.

10/10 Dave at Rustic World Timbers is amazing and we wouldn’t go anywhere else, we have had made 4 different bench tops all custom made to the size we needed , they are all of high quality and are stunning. Highly recommend the fractal burning, such a excellent feature and we have received a lot of comments regarding the benchtops in our home. Dave is friendly and helpful and it was a quick turnaround for them to be made, we will be back for sure. If your after unique and stand out pieces that are completely affordable Dave is your man!

I would highly recommend Dave at Rustic World Timbers as the products are of high quality at a great price. We are very happy with our bench tops and a custom made shelf for our kitchen window.
Definitely worth 5/5 stars.
