Traditionally Inspired American Made™. This 18th century technique of preserving wood with fire is refreshed for today’s design. Aggressively burning the surface layer of our Forest Stewardship Council® Certified and 100% reclaimed Oak planks creates the signature “alligator skin” texture and a black mildly iridescent look Shou Sugi Ban is known for.
Shou Sugi Ban Oak Deep Char is a mix of red and white Oak with occasional knots and a variety of deep grains and fissure; character from its past as American horse fencing. Though the char level will change over time with exposure to the elements, Shou Sugi Ban Oak pays homage to the toasted barrels of bourbon Kentucky is famous for.
