Hi,
Does anyone know if oil was originally used in Japan to seal Yakisugi siding?

I'm building a pallet cabin....plan to finish the siding with this burnt-wood technique.
I'm going for the "alligator" look, ie deeply charred and not brushed......It would save some money if I didn't have to seal it with oil.

Any knowledge most welcome.
 
Everybody's invited. Except this tiny ad:
