Purchasing a neon sign transformer is easier than wiring a microwave one, it has 2 wire leads and is contained in a switched box. Also you can purchase lineman gloves for protection. I used a good set of jumper cable as my leads as they have clamps to connect to the wood which I run a screw into the wood at opposite ends of the project. Always connect the leads with the power off, wet the project with water and baking soda mix, let sit for a minute then turn on power and sit back and watch. Unless you have enough practice do not touch as this will and can kill you. Always safety first.
