I made this bandsaw box with pallet wood and leftover cedar fencing I planed and then glued up, the first picture shows the pine pallet wood unburned and burned. I used a small propane torch to highlight the grain on the wood, and used natural deck finish to make the lighter wood look browner.

Very innovative. The torching gives tis box a very cool look. No one would guess pine and cedar. Good job!

Thanks, I think next time I will use all pine and try to get the grains to match up, should get a ton more of this wood when my company gets there catalogs for 2013, the pine is from the top stack’s to keep the bands from bending the boxes so its always clean wood :)

Beautiful! I love torched pine, made a record cabinet (shows my age…!) when I was younger out of torched plywood.

What a great idea. A beautiful box too! That technique would work well on just about all my projects, I just need to do a more thorough job of it, lol.
