My current project is a wooden trinket box finished by lightly scorching the wood.
The video above shows how the torching method really highlights the grain of the wooden trinket box, giving a rustic, distressed look. The contrast of the finish is far greater than any liquid based finish that claims to bring out the grain. This wooden trinket box will be available to buy via the online shop shortly.
The photos below are close ups of the grain once the torching has been completed.
