Now you can have project-ready charred wood without breaking the neighborhood ban on trying shou sugi ban in your driveway. These boards have decorating super powers. The wood's surface has been burned to blacken streaks and knots. You'll get unique boards with lots of variation.
Tops and edges of the boards are charred, not the underside. A light satin clear coat protects charred areas from smudging. However, if you'll use it for furniture, or projects in high-traffic or wet areas (kitchen, bathroom), you must use a polyurethane sealer. Use Charred Wood Boards indoors only.
READ THIS ABOUT COLOR: The amount of charring varies from board to board depending on the level of streaks and knots. Some boards will be lighter than others. If consistency is important for your project, we recommend ordering at least 10% more wood than you think you need.
Installation notes: UFP-Edge Charred Wood is decorative - not for structural purposes. Product must be fastened to structural members at a maximum 24 inches on center. 3 boards cover about 11 square feet.
