Check out this cool material - charred wood. Ever thought about using burnt wood as a decorative material?

It can be used for interior wall coverings, exterior cladding or exterior pavers and decking! The process originated in Japan, where they burnt wood to preserve and antique it. It's called Shou-Sugi-Ban which translates to burnt cedar board. The look is really cool with a unique texture and rich, deep almost black color. There are different degrees of charring resulting in various textures, and colors. It's yet another way to give wood a unique character and try something different! Any type of wood can be used, original it was driftwood exposed to harsh climates, therefore you can achieve an expensive look with wood you would never think of using for a finished product!
