This project is sponsored by burns o matic to learn more about burns o matic and the torch that I'm using on this project click on the link in the description alright well I filled these screw holes with wooden plugs I've given the same good sanding now I'm ready for the fun part and that's what I call a burn wood shellac finish you'll start with a torch. This is the TS 8,000 by burns o matic.
Really easy torch to use you simply turn on the fuel hit the button and you've got fire I'm going to bring the frame out to my welding table and the one thing you want to remember when you're going for a burn wood finish like. This is to always keep the torch moving and try to move in the direction of the grain [Applause] [Applause] now I'm ready to apply the shellac and I'm using garnet lack which is a little bit darker than your common orange shellac and I'd like to mix my own shellac using shellac flakes and denatured alcohol you can buy pre-mixed shellac of your own store or local hardware store but you need to remember that most chillax have a shelf life meaning they'll go bad after a little while.
That's why I like to mix my own. Okay, well I'm really happy with the way this project turned out is a lot of fun it's just really cool to run the torch over the wood and see the grain pop and then to apply the shellac it's just a it's a really cool finish and I'm hoping to build a piece of furniture with the same wood and same finish some time soon I want to thank firms o matic for sponsoring this project if you want to learn more about the torch that I've used and burns o matic click on the link in the description as always thanks for tuning in and I'll see you soon to keep up with projects on a daily basis follow me on Instagram and Facebook for behind the scenes look at projects and in-depth Q&A s visit my patreon page where I post weekly vlogs.
