Playing with Fire

This is my attempt at Shou Sugi Ban finishing.  I stopped short of the full char that you normally go for because I like the way the grain was being highlighted.  It's a piece of fir scrap.

I am thinking with metal tape a person could do all kinds of designs in wood.  I think I will try it when I get more tape.  Thanks for the video. Yes
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

For this one, I did a rattle can shellac.  The burning left soot which I was afraid would smudge with a wipe on finish.  For the true Japanese finish, you burn longer until the harder wood darkens, then you wire brush off the soft charred and sooty stuff.  It makes basically a reverse of what I have.  If you want, BLO is enough to finish the true finish.
