What kind of torch are you using, the wood is untreated right & you have not applied
any thing to the wood yet?

I use a hand torch, I get them at my local Ace or Home Depot for under $20
and a hard wire brush, like the type used to clean a BBQ grill for removing light coats of ash
you should be able to get the routed areas charred the way you want.

You are doing multiple passes of burning, then a light scrapping to get the right look?
