Ever since Dan discovered the Shou-sugi-ban technique used by the Japanese to age wood, he just can’t get enough of it. From the wooden beam light above the bar, to the recently built barn door, it’s become one of his staples for his carpentry projects. And this time around was no different. Dan was building us two picnic benches, and would be using the same technique. I know. Sometimes even I can’t get over how crafty he is. And he always makes it look so easy.
