yes, what Andy said.
I used to torch the shit out of everything, but after spending some time with Benz & Will, and also getting some advice from Aloha Tom, I now realize that torching is essentially a cheap trick to create the appearance of depth and hide tool marks. it fools people who don't know the difference, but not people who know what they're looking at.
deep clean cuts eliminate the need for torching...
but hey bro, not knocking your work at all...you're on the path and doing great. just telling you what I was glad to have been told myself. Except for Benz, we're all students and have a lot to learn....myself included!
