Scorched dining tables, Shou sugi ban is a scorching process many thousands of years old, it was used in many Japanese temples as a way of preserving wood.
The technique involves scorching the surface of timber to bring its tannings and natural resins to the top surface using fire.
The surface is cleaned leaving a blackened finish whilst still being able to see the natural grain of the timber.
We then finish the surface with oils, or lacquer leaving a rich deep almost mystical black surface.
An option is to also add a splash of coloured resin for a stunning feature, the possibilities of this technique is endless, and browned to give a real wow factor to your dining area.
