The Blow Torch.

Red wood Double kennel with pull out drawers in the middle.

Blow torch is one of mine personal favorite methods of treating the wood. Originated in Japan in 18th century Shou Sugi Ban is most beautiful method of waterproofing the wood. This look is coming back from the past and used widely in contemporary exteriors and indoor decorative paneling or furnishings. On top of that dog crate benefits from two layers of clear poly-acrylic coatings which enhance the depth of the piece and improve durability properties. Under normal circumstances this application does not require huge amount of maintenance.
