Awesome 100% reclaimed oak farm table charred in the ancient Japanese wood preservation technique, Shou Sugi Ban. The Shou Sugi Ban or Yakisugi, technique protects the wood by charring it with fire. The charring process creates a layer of carbon that makes the wood impervious to the elements, and as a result, requires less maintenance and less oiling. The reclaimed oak is charred, cooled, brushed and finished with our safe and environmentally friendly oil/wax blend. The final product is a gorgeous rich scorched wood that is resilient to rot, decay, fire, insects, and will last generations.
