This is a simple two or three seater chair i made for my inlaws to go out on their front porch. I used pine 1”x6” lumber and after it was assembled i used a torch to lightly burn it to add character.

I used the same burning method on the small picnic tables i made. it looks pretty dark in this picture but if you rub it down with a wet cloth after burning it it lightens it up alot and its much more subtle.

That’s sweet! I’ve been wanting to try that technique, and you’ve inspired me to give it a shot. It really gives it a unique look.

Thanks chris, you can use a propane torch but i use an oxy acetylene torch with a oxidizing flame and just keep it waving over the wood very quickly, after burning it wipe down the piece with soap and water to remove all the soot and excess carbon. it will lighten up the look alot.
