to keep it authentic, you need to leave all the flaws and burned wood in tact and clear over it.
to remove all the remnants of being hand made, you then have just another bent board.
if it is not charred on the inside, I would use a bottle torch and burn it a little.
(pour some Jack Daniels over it to give it a little character).
