Shou-sugi-ban 焼杉板, or burnt sugi board is a Japanese technique of creating timber cladding that should last over 80 years. Sugi is known as Japanese cedar, Instead of sugi, our wood species are Belinga.
In preparation for an upcoming project we laid out some Eastern Hemlock to prepare for Shou Sugi Ban treatment. This ancient Japanese treatment is used commonly in Japan to treat siding. We decided to finish it with Rubio Monocoat.
