KUJAKU by reSAWN TIMBER co. features cypress burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban.  KUJAKU can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding and is available in select grade or #2 common grade cypress.  The higher the grade, the better it is felt the wood will perform, especially in exterior applications.  See our CHARRED Grading Guide for more info.

KUJAKU is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed and then stained/sealed.  The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing the back side as well as the face).  The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.

KUJAKU is made with cypress sourced from the Southern United States and can be used for interior wall cladding, ceiling cladding and exterior siding.  With its legendary beauty and natural durability, cypress has long been a staple as an exterior wood siding product.  Because cypress generates its own preservative oil, called cypressene, it’s an ideal wood for locations with constant heat, humidity, and torrential rains.

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.
