I Feel A Draft #4: Making Wood Last with Fire, Not Paint: A Japanese Technique

A very interesting Japanese technique to try!! Called Shou Sugi Ban 焼杉板 (or Yakisugi), this technique is used for exterior or interior wood surfaces. Being a woodworker before, I had never heard of this technique. The only preservation technique that I knew of was stain and varnish. Please comment below!!
