Restorer Tool Shou Sugi Ban DIY Kit
The Shou Sugi Ban DIY kit is specifically designed for cleaning up char and brushing wood to give it the Shou Sugi Ban effect The included 80 grit nylon brushes strip out the soft grain of the wood leaving the surfaced prepared for a clear coat or stain/paint to be applied in the soft grain channels.
Shou Sugi Ban DIY has taken off in recent years but dates back 18th Century Japan. Originating in 18th century Japan, shou sugi ban is a particularly striking method of preserving wood by charring it with fire. The wood is burned until the surface is charred, and then coated with natural oil.
The result is a scorched finish with a magnificent charcoal black color. The surface of the wood can take on a crackled or alligator skin look depending on the wood species and the burn intensity.
Designed by Robert Kundel Jr. the Original Restorer Tool is used for material removal that would normally require the use of many different hand tools and power tools.
This patented handheld or benchtop tool can be used to buff, sand, grind, polish, scrub, or clean any surface. Its balanced and compact for maneuvering in tight areas and around tough obstacles. Use it on surfaces that are flat or curved, wet or dry.
The Restorer can be fitted with any type of roller from abrasives to wire wheel. The pistol grip allows for one-handed tool control or use the front palm grip to work vertically or overhead. Connect a vacuum source to the output port to efficiently clear away debris.
Thanks to its unique interchangeable drum, the Restorer brings you many of the benefits of both a belt sander and an angle grinder. When compared to a belt sander, it is lighter, easier to handle, and more versatile, thanks to the wide variety of accessories. Weighing in at just over 2kg, the Restorer is less than half the weight of most belt sanders. It is also much more compact for maneuvering in tight areas.
The barrel-shaped roller quickly flings debris away from the surface, which decreases heat build-up and clogged abrasives. When compared to an angle grinder, the Restorer yields a much smoother finish, particularly on wood, where the flat roller helps prevent gouging and the abrasive can be aligned with the grain. The tool is well-balanced, with a pistol grip for one-handed use, and a front palm grip for working vertically or overhead.
It is great for cleaning up rough sawn hardwoods without removing the characteristic features of the timber or the sawn textures. This leaves a premium clean, but, characteristic timber to meet your needs.
