DIABLO is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed and given a clear sealer.  The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping.  The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.

CHARRED CEDAR features shou sugi ban charred western red cedar in a range of colors from a stark, vertical grain black to a knotty natural brown. Western red cedar has been used as a consistent and high performing exterior wood siding for hundreds of years. Most of reSAWN’s CHARRED CEDAR designs can be used in similar exterior applications and interior wall/ceiling cladding.

Our charring & sealing process makes for beautifully designed exterior wood siding.  Like any exterior wood siding prefinished or finished in place, these materials will weather naturally over time and will require maintenance.  For interior applications, expect little to no change.  We’ve created this CHARRED USAGE GUIDE to tell you more.  

reSAWN’s CHARRED offering features cypress, western red cedar, Accoya, Kebony, black walnut, red oak, white oak and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban.  Our award-winning CHARRED products pay homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal.  Historically very specific in their definition, “shou-sugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general.  All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in our facility in Telford, PA.
