Burn Staining

here are photos of a footstool and a bench glider that i made using the old one as a pattern. both were made using treated lumber. the footstool was built from scraps from the bench glider. they were then burn stained, sealed with a waterproofer and then coated with helmsman spar urethane, there is no stain what so ever in either of these.

"burn Staining" is essentially burning the wood with a hand held blow torch and going over the wood with the flame held real close just burning it enough to "Highlight" the grain patterns. i think it looks pretty decent. the Glider is an Anniversary gift for the wife. i used the one i got her for our 5th Anniversary as a pattern as it was falling apart.

The craftsmanship and finish look great. You do very nice work.
I must caution you that pressure treated wood when burned give off toxic fumes. Maybe the quick heat is ok but don't burn scraps in the fire. Perhaps use a fan to blow smoke away from you and do it outside. Same goes for sanding dust, its bad for the lungs, use a respirator not a dust mask. I learned this the hard way when CCA PT used to have copper arsenate in it. Now its ACQ and mostly copper and formaldehyde.
Please be safe

i did the burn staining outside. when i cut and sanded the wood i used goggles and a respirator that was made for particles.

Thank you for the kind words and information.

when i took the old bench glider apart to use as a pattern, i copied it so well it rubbed in the same places when you used it

a little help and a few passes here and there with a belt sander took care of that.

I looked up some stuff after I posted in case I missed something. It seems the new ACQ wood chemicals will destroy standard hardware that is galvanized. They recommend stainless steel nuts and bolts. They do make coated screws just for the ACQ.

i did not know that but i did use stainless nuts and bolts just because its outside. the screws are guard dog screws, made specifically for treated lumber. i had regular drywall screws in the footstool but caused the wood to turn black around the screws. sorta like the coating was washing off as i had it outside before i finished it.

SO...back into the garage and replaced every screw

i forgot to mention that the heart and squiggly things were traced from the original, then holes were drilled for the jigsaw to cut them out and the edges were rounded with a detail sander

Always enjoyable seeing what other guys build. Gives me ideas that may never happen! Iv'e been doing stuff like this since 7th grade. Over 45 years and still enjoy it. Spent 33 years in one house and developing the shop. Then I moved. Still trying to get shop back together after 3 years.
Glad you used the right hardware, will make for a lasting project.
