Seeking new techniques on Internet of wood,I found in japan the art of burning wood, this is an ancient Japanese technique for them to make furniture. after several attempts i found the best result and apply for the wood and make me able to make this lamp.
I think it looks amazing, what you say?

The lamp looks really great!

Would you kindly share the technique that worked best for you?

You’re right. That looks spectacular.

What did you finish it with? A pure charred-wood lamp seems like it would be a disaster.

I think the charred wood adds beauty to the project, has a dark almost ebony look to it.

That’s really cool, something a stain doesn’t provide depth to, even powdered stains, the hit & miss of the char isn’t easily obtained using stains like this. You’ve flipped off a few light-bulbs for me, now to talk my wife into wear she wants some kinda cool burnt wooden something-or-another, that’ll go over about as easy as her agreeing to a 28 ft offshore fishing boat…I’ll get back to you on that, lol.

Hi guys,

The technique Enrique used is called “yakisugi” or “Shou Sugi ban”. There are several youtube videos about this technique. You have to fire up wood, cool it down fast with water and brush the charcoal. It’s an ancient japanese technique on how to make wood rot-free, waterproof…
