Burned wood

Redoing a room for the son , larger and it will force the wife to clean it out of stored items that need to be gone , but I am doing something a bit different to one wall , paint will be matched in a way to complement the other , furniture as well ........................... the wall process

Same pieces , lighting makes them look different

Burn the central grain ( heavy grain ) and stain , ebony , weathered , with the possibility of adding a color .......some blue so far

pictures are close to showing true colors , but still off from what they actually look like

Will kinda look like a room I recently painted for a friend for there son's room .......floor has the effect I'm after , just on the wall instead

No sheen , just a flat sealer to keep it dust and lint free

Re: Burned wood

awesome :D I sure love wood :)
seems like lots of work, I love pic 2 where the lighting is different.. I feel a three dimensional feel, like I could put my finger in the grain like it is grooved.. Awesome!

It looks fabulous!  Looking forward to pics when it is installed - I'm sure it will look absolutely stunning!

Re: Burned wood

Burned wood? Describe this process. Is this literally burned wood that was surface singed and you are reclaiming it after sanding it? Is this a specialized stain technique. Details please! I love that look! I'm seeing kitchen cabinets...

Would you believe 1/4 inch thick pine, tongue and grove

Burned wood , not Burnt wood , slight difference but I get what you mean Uno , the process is for a steady hand and a good knowledge of what the outcome will be  , I only burned the heavy grain , sometimes hidden so you need to find the vein and then it's a gradual start to high lite this grain , knots , burls , and then decide how dark you want it , sap will heat up very fast so a fire is a possibility  , just a word of caution , Once you have the initial look then decide what you're after , you can fade the burn away from the darkest to still slightly high lite the rest .The finish ? what ever your heart desires , white wash it with any color of paint , diluted with water if water based , I stain then if I want a ting of color as in the blueish colored pieces , I gingerly brush it on and wipe off right away otherwise you have a solid color that usually distroy's the look

I wish I could say the burner was a complicated device ......but not so

It requires as I said a steady hand and a slow sweep  , other wise you have a blotchy job .practice on scrap pieces  before attempting on the real wood  , If I was doing a Shou Sugi Ban as the Japanese do then I'd use one of these awesome tools , char the wood then coat it

Which I might use for a outdoor timber project ? will see though .......life's to short to do everything it seems :(

Any questions ? ask or PM me and I'll do my best to help with what I can

If you want to distress /antiquing wood after ageing , or burning ? Been playing with it a bit ......so far

Re: Burned wood

I have a whole shed of T&G pine, or cedar, just waiting for your arrival. I'll begin taking down the old cabinets now. When do you think you'll get here?

That is so amazing looking!

And to think the only use for the Bernz-O-Matic at my house is making Cremé Brûlée!

Oh wow. That's stunning! I'm currently redoing my son's room as well. I'll wait for you to finish Uno's cabinets though.

Re: Burned wood

My husband made a scorched wood door for the chop bin, guess he was feeling creative. A friend saw it, and finished his family room that way. And I saw on Facebook where they make doors and curtains the same way, and put them on tracks.
