‘Yakisugi (焼杉) is a traditional Japanese method of wood preservation. Yaki means to heat with fire, and sugi is cypress. It is also referred to in the West as shō sugi ban (焼杉板), which uses the same kanji characters but a different pronunciation. Ban means “plank (wood)”.
By slightly charring the surface of the wood without combusting the whole piece, the wood becomes water-proof through the carbonisation and thus more durable. It also protects against insects.’ SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA

A desk to complete an existing home-office scheme. Using 2.5mm engineered veneers (thicker than standard 0.7mm) enables us to make furniture pieces that would otherwise not be possible in a solid material.
The benefits in this situtaion are consistent and beautiful, defect free, wide grain patterns, no unsightly end-grain and, from a functional perspective, stability; a desk that will remain true and flat for generations! ..And…not forgetting the ecological and economical positives of using veneers.
The thicker 2.5mm engineering veneer enables us to apply edge treatments, such as chamfers and round overs, which provide a tactile and comfortable working surface for the user. This additional thickness allows for a deeper take-up of finish (hard wax-oil) and should any kind of disaster happen in the piece’s lifetime, we’ve enough material to work a refinish.
The piece includes: suspension filing and stationary storage on push-to-open drawer runners. Concealed corner cabinetry for tech and a luxurious mirror gloss cream facia and end panels wrapped in solid American Black Walnut.
