Shou Sugi Ban: Vol. II / by PLATTE

Inspired by our success with the Anchor Bar (previous post) we're now installing some shou sugi ban as an accent piece in our office.  As before, we decided to burn the wood ourselves following the technique the Japanese perfected over 300 years.  Shots of the final install to come..

With just some newspaper and some welding gloves we were able to create some pretty dramatic affects.

**Don't try this at home!

It was actually really intense when it got going.  We particularly like the shot with Scott breathing fire..
