To thank the organization I worked at for the past 3 years, I decided to build a plaque that will go in a new room we have. I first built a very simple plaque, then I sandblasted the logo in the wood and finally burnt it using a propane torch (like the ones used in plumbing).
The tape I used mostly protected the maple but as it burnt, it created interested shadows I didn’t expect. I left them in place as it added character. I then sanded the whole piece again with 180 grit to remove some of the excess burning. I finished the piece with a few coats of wiping varnish.
