Wood Burning with Electricity - Longboard - Skateboard with Glow in the Dark
Wood Buring with Electricty – Longoard Skateboard custom finish with Lichtenberg Figure etching and the glow in the dark resin. Looks awesome at night cool project!

Pictures here on my FB

Nice custom build, finished with what i use on furniture, osmo hard wax oil, grip seemed good wearing the usual cheap asda/walmart shoes, i wasnt hitting the curves hard though, im a bit rusty plus ive got zero pads and protection anymore. Need to invest in some I reckon.
Nice unique finish with the Lichtenberg Figure, it took a nice pattern although it was slow to start, i was also really wary of soaking so much the ply started separating. When it gets really exciting is I think the glue heating up and gasifying, unless there were some pockets of wood resin in the timber, that might do the same effect.

Total pita taking off the grip tape, i dont have a heat gun so used the rocket stove to heat and then pulled off the tape, used wipes to clean this one up.

Cool music once again by Scott Buckley with thanks!

Burning wood with electricity / Lichtenberg Figure with Microwave transformers is dangerous, im a highly trained professional, well actually no, just some dude in his shed experimenting, copy what i do at your own risk, and there is a serious risk so take all precautions when messing with electricity.

  1. Bongo, damn man you still got it… Never loose it…. God bless and keep the good times rollin, cheers Les 🙈🙉🙊

  2. Nice job on that. I've seen plenty of old wooden water skis for cheap at garage sales, but no longboards with wheels attached. The roads are so bad here I'd need pneumatic tires to run on the rocks & gravel.

  3. Awesome bit of night surfing there mate. I must get my board back on the road cause your never too old. Rock on

  4. i'm hopping to do another burn soon, I saw somebody on you tube place wet kitchen towel on the wood first, looked really good so going to try that

  5. I don't know what it is bout this video that just makes me feel good. maybe the music ( what's it called please) and the scenery. good man.
