Can anyone identify what wood this is being made from, and what technique was used to get the burned wood look?

It's too difficult to see exactly what kind of wood it is. It appears to be some one of the white woods. The burned look is as simple as burning it with a propane torch. Just kinda follow the soft parts of the grain with the torch.

Thanks for the information... Now that I am back from vacation I might have to do some experimenting on some scraps to see if I can manage to get this type of affect.

LMAO... I guess the oxy/ace cutting torch is out... Darn and I was looking forward to cranking those bottlesmup too :(
If that's what you have (O/A), that set up will work, as well as straight acetylene. You just have to have the right distance from the subject and have enough movement to minimize the possibility of igniting the wood.

I know, I was more joking about the O/A than anything. I don't like running straight Acetylene for any length of time, it puts off way too much soot. I'll try the hand held propane torch though, much cheaper to burn and easier to work with.
