VW Crafter with a Japanese ‘Fun’iki’ (vibe)! Shou sugi ban (焼杉板) weatherproofing technique!

As you can see we’re pushing the bar with creative finishes on this recent Campervan Renovation, using the Japanese Shou sugi ban (焼杉板) weatherproofing technique, which is both practical and environmentally friendly, and is stunning with it’s inherent textural beauty! By charring and washing the wood and then using white washing (or preferred colour stain) before oiling to emphasise and seal the wood grain, it creates a characteristic depth, likened to the ancient artistry of metal folding in the crafting of a Samurai sword, yet looks like beautiful beach weathered wood!! Have a look at the VW Crafter page for all the details under the Campervan Renovations section!
