A burning question

Troy German
>I would like the next bowl I turn to have a blackened, dimpled exterior. I was practicing dimples with a ball pein hammer last night and am comfortable with that. But how does one scorch the wood? A torch while on the lathe? Friction by letting it rub something while turning?

Scorch first then dimple or dimple then scorch?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for sharing,
Troy
