what’s up guys on this episode of  Build Dad Build I’m going to show   you guys how to get that burnt wood  finish that I love so much you might   even called it Shou Sugi Ban all right  guys before we get to the burn and I   figured we go over a couple of tools  I’ll link to the tools I use down in   the description down below or tools  like mine so I have three different   torches now when I started out I have  one torch so you don’t need all these   torches to start out as I continue  to burn more projects I just wanted   to branch out a little bit so first  here’s Big Daddy this is also used   to kill weeds I think if you look up  weed torch you’ll find this on the   Googles and this hooks up to a propane  tank like you’d have on your grill I   actually just used the same one that  I use on my gas grill this is what I use when I need to burn a lot of material  or I have a large surface area because   you get a smaller torch and it just  takes forever speaking of a smaller   torch this is the torch I started out  with I have since this is just a can of  propane man propane torch had used  to have this nozzle on it switched   over to a quick quick igniter and if  you look the mouth on that’s a little   wider this is a little thinner I use this  now for detailing so when I want to get   to like kind of a little more go into a  small piece and this is my third torch this has a very specific use but we’ll  get to that later now let’s talk about   the boring stuff safety you may not see  it on camera but I have this behind the   scenes every time I’m gonna burn any  sort of material first it’s just a big   bucket of water y’all know what water  looks like right the main reason I use   this is if I have a smaller piece and it  catches on fire and I can’t get it under   control I can throw it in the bucket I  can also pick the bucket up and dump it   on a larger piece if I need to never had  to do that but it’s always sitting right   there what I use most often is just  this little spray bottle of water I   use this mainly to keep flare-ups to  a minimum sometimes that you know one   piece of just a little corner so it’ll  catch on fire and I’ll keep burning and   last as far as fire prevention goes  it’s a fire extinguisher ain’t cheap   but I’d rather have one and not need it  than need one and not have one 2 other   safety related items one safety glasses  people are like Nick what do you need   safety goggles when you’re burning stuff  well sometimes you get a little bit of   a sap that’ll pop off especially around  knots and I’ve actually had it get me in   the arm and it is not pleasant when  it’s heated up to where it’s so hot   it’s it’s popping because it’s pretty  much boiling at that point in time I   don’t want hot sap on eyeballs so our  safety glasses and the other thing is   a pair of gloves it’s just when you’re  handling the material it’s still hot   sometimes if you’re holding the piece  like a smaller piece you may not really   have thought through the direction  that the heat is going to travel   and sometimes it can travel right up  there and get you so I always just a   pair of work gloves mainly so you can  reach down and grab a piece after it’s   been freshly burned and you don’t  really have to worry about it burning you so once you get to this point you  can be done but you can’t take this   further which is what I’m gonna do  right now we have your mid-tones   and your darks what I’m gonna do is  I’m going to come in and with just a   little bit of sandpaper I’m gonna hit  some some some areas to just kind of   get through a little bit of that  Brown down to some lighter color   again this is a step that most of  the time you don’t see anybody do   because sanding is boring but I  probably won’t have a lot of the   actual sanding on video but I wanted to  mention this step because this is where   you can take your pretty good-looking  piece and make it a little bit better first we have this piece that I did  it’s blue stain pretty cool Next up I just have a like a natural stain  that you’d use on pine that gives   it kind of that gold color next I use  the little Maker Brand Simple Finish   this stuff is amazing and I I really  hope the depth of what this looks like   translates onto camera and this last  one was kind of a surprise hit I I got   some some bleach stain and when I put  it on it it just looked grey it looked   like it washed all the contrast I was  really bummed out but once I wiped it   off oh so good look at that I really  have to finish something like this now   it looks amazing alright guys that’s  it ope you dig’em my neighbor’s mowing his lawn seriously oh look at those ridges so good no there’s nothing to   burn wood finish or uh Shou Sugi Ban you
