Day 4/5 for my good pals over @myrepurposedlifesc. This is my Shou Sugi Ban night stand. I love it. 1 wood crate, 4 hunks of 2x2, Shou Sugi, and shellac. If you try something like this please avoid trying to char the entire piece. You'll have smithereens if you do. I used a giant propane torch over the fire pit. An 80 grit sanding pad was used to rub the ash into the whole piece. Then I applied Black Varathane Stain to lightly fill in the areas that needed a little more char color, without actually burning it further. The idea is to keep the rag in a dry state (minimal stain), so as to mimic ash being rubbed into the grain. Do a quick tack cloth wipe and apply spray shellac after. Voila! You have a cool little night stand.
