I've been following this OGCWP (Old Goat Charred Wood Product) topic with interest as I'm always trying to learn new things, and my results are mixed at best.  From reading all the posts I'm still not sure I have this worked out but I figured I'd just give it a try.  Maybe you folks can spot where I messed up.

Step 1.  Get some pine.  So I pulled a pallet of pine and moved it outside.





Step 2.  As per PAW, pour some bourbon on top of the wood. Okayyyyy, seems like a waste of good drinking whiskey, but a few bottles of JD Old No. 7 poured on top of the pallet of pine pretty much soaked the wood.

I keep bourbon in my mill shed, just for these occasions.




Step 3.  According to Poston, the whole key to this is using a weed torch. Although he probably has found a few hidden in his logs from the local prison, I didn't have one, so I got the guys at the local mobile home park to help me out.  I waved a few bags of potato chips in front of them, and they eased down my way with their 'Weed Burner."




Step 4.  As per WDH's suggestion, I needed to stand on the bourbon soaked pallet of wood to make sure I have sufficient boot prints to add extra character.

The boot print on the poplar adds some rustic character.
So I put on my best pair of work boots and climbed on the alcohol soaked pile of wood.  I noticed I had accidentally spilled some alcohol on my boots,  what a shame, itís for drinking not spillin.  Iím sure glad alcohol doesnít burn or I might have caught fire.  





Step 5.  Then, according to Southside's instructions, I started the process of "charring" the wood.  I think this may be where I had some issues.  I had to get off the pile of wood when my boots started getting hot.  I donít think I got the timing of this step correct, I need more practice.  

Fire up your torch and burn that resin hard.




Step 6. Process complete.  A short time after the fire department left, I was able to inspect the quality of the results.  I think the colors and end product turned out OK, but the usable yield was a little lower than I expected.   Not sure if this will be a money maker for me but Iíll ponder it over a few swallows of the Old No. 7 that I had left over.

on a serious note ( :D) I believe there was a thread about distressing furniture by charing. I picked up a whole pickup truck load of new distressed oak flooring that had been charred on purpose.

The end results will be much better if you stack the lumber in your aluminum framed utility trailer.
 

 
You must take care and not have said lumber stacked too close to your building.


 
If you are not careful you will loose the whole thing and have to start the process all over again.

That is some right-funny stuff right there! However, I can tell you that it doesn't fit Zippo's image...they are going for a softer/more modern feel. No pyro, no WWII, and no smoking. LOL! :D(I do work for them).

Robert, you got it backwards.  You have to put the bourbon on the bottom of the boot, not the top.  You will have to try it again.

Simple?  I can't figure out all the steps, except I'm pretty sure I'll try it again, but this time I'll make an adjustment using the advice I've been given here.  It seems I need a much bigger stack of wood and a LOT more alcohol.

It occurs to me that this pretty much fits the description of the Sycamore project.  Maybe Poston could give is a live demo next year?
