You use a Torch to lightly scorch the wood with the flame which brings out the grain of the wood. After that you can use a wire brush to blend or remove some of the scorched wood or not.

It is all subjective to you personal taste. Some people even stain the wood then let it dry and then use a torch and wire brush.

Experiment with it on scrap to develope your own method.
