More about our Shou Sugi Ban Boxes:
The wood is burnt using a blow torch, this process is know as Shou Sugi Ban, an ancient Japanese method of preserving wood.
We burn the finished bare box with a torch until the surface is blistered, much like Crocodile skin to look at.
Then we brush the charred wood off with an abrasive wheel. With a very coarse brush we are able to dig out the softer wood which effectively raises the natural grain.
Finally the shousugiban boxes are dyed with a water based wood stain and then polished using Liberon Black Bison wax.
Small Shou Sugi Ban Box Midnight Blue 01 has been coloured using coloured using “Midnight Blue” dye, a really dark blue almost black.
How we make our small palletwood boxes:
These small boxes are made entirely using upcycled wood from heat treated pallets.
The slats are removed from the pallet and then de-nailed, then the edges of each slat are cleaned up and straightened on the table saw, this ensures they are all the same width.
Next they are run through the planer on both sides to both clean up the faces and to make each slat is roughly the same thickness.
The lengths are now measured to make the side, bottoms, lids and ends and are then cut on the chop saw and finally sanded to clean the cuts up.
Finally the boxes are assembled using brad nails and wood glue. Once the glue is dry the boxes are sanded all over so they are ready for the next stage of finish if required.
We also offer bare unfinished wooden boxes in the palletwood stuff shop, which can be decorated and personalised by you.
