Shou Sugi Ban Chest—SOLD
Reworked and released in 2020

*Yakisugi can be literally translated as “burned cedar”.
It has been used as a traditional method to protect timber s
iding surfaces, mostly for exterior cladding on traditional
Japanese houses, when there was still no means of chemical
wood protection. This method of Yakisugi improves siding
longevity by preventing decay; insect and mould infestation;
makes the planks more dimensionally stable and improves fire retardancy. Yakisugi is also now commonly know as “Shou Sugi Ban”
– with Sugi having the same meaning as Sugi in Yakisugi.
