I use the Bernzomatic TS 8000 hand torch to create a burned wood finish on the frame I built for the magnetic chalkboard. The finish works great with simple 2x4s and the grain really pops with the torch finish and a few coats of shellac.
Here’s a link to the video on making the frame using the table saw.
