Three years ago we bought the perfect dining table for our family. I loved everything about it and it worked perfectly for us for three years, then we moved into our new house. It worked but it made our dining room really cramped, so it just wasn’t working. I have been wanting to do make a new dining table for a while now but finally got around to it. I absolutely love how it turned it out and it was easier than I thought it would be. I decided that I wanted the table to have some character, so instead of staining it I lightly burned the surface of the wood using a BernzOmatic blow torch to give it a burned wood finish and I love how it turned out!
Now for the fun part! We got to burn the surface of the wood. I loved how this turned out. We just took the TS8000 BernzOMatic and burned the wood, going back and forth over the wood. We were about 2-3 inches away form the wood. Make sure to go with the grain because you can see lines if you don’t. The longer you hold it on a spot, the darker the wood so you have to make sure you do it evenly and lightly. The blow torch is awesome! You can change the settings on it so you can have a big flame or a smaller flame. The higher the flame the darker the color of the wood will be. The blow torch was so nice and easy to use, I am definitely going to be using it for more projects in the future.
