HEALTH AND SAFETY
For your information about health matters relating to the toxisity of wood, the HSE have published a document outlining the dangers and medical side effects when using wood. The document can be viewed at www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/wis30.pdf
Fractal woodburning is a process of applying high voltage electricity through treated wood. the figures produced are commonly called Lichtenberg figures or Fractal burns.
The AWGB have published their policy against the use of this technique, following a recent fatality in the UK.
The problem with Fractal or Lichtenberg pyrography is that it is dangerous, and there are no safety standards published for the process.
The AWGB recommend that this technique is NOT practised.
See AWGB website for more information.
