Perhaps you've seen pieces of furniture like the one above with a scorched surface. Now you want to try it yourself, but you don't know where to start, don't worry, I've got you covered.
Sand the entire surface of your wood. I tend to sand it with 400 grit sandpaper before scorching it.
First assemble your torch. You typically just screw your can of propane into the bottom of the torch. Twist a knob, gas comes out. Pull the trigger, gas lights on fire and you've got a good flame going.
After you've scorched your wood and put away your torch, it's now time to put the finishing touches on.
