Lychee wood side table.
Hand carved and then finished with Japanese architectural technique 'Shou Sugi Ban' , creating this beautiful side table is a piece of art and certainly a talking point.
This piece is heavy and requires 2 people to lift.
The polished, slightly concaved top creates a real contrast to the side profile.

Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese architectural technique that was used to preserve wood by charring the surface with a hot flame. Shou Sugi Ban is also known as Yakisugi and traditionally was performed on Sugi wood, which is a Japanese cedar. The process involved charring the wood, cooling it, cleaning off any soot or burnt debris on the surface, and finally finishing the boards with an oil.
