Shou Sugi Ban Coffee Table

Completed: March 2017

This table was commissioned for a retirement gift. Made of pine and spalted pecan. The idea was to make a “rustic” table, which was new for me. So I used a technique known as Shou Sugi Ban, a process by which the material is heavily charred with fire in order to give the base an aged weathered look as well as impart color. After charring the material it was wire brushed to produce an interesting texture. The piece is finished with several coats of satin lacquer.
