reSAWN's KUJAKU shou sugi ban charred cypress - spec'd by SG23 Design - featured in Philadelphia Style Magazine
“Griffith’s masterstroke – a two-story Shou Sugi Ban accent wall in charred cypress – anchors the common rooms. Hanging artworks on it is a snap, thanks to the horizontal slats and a cleat system fabricated and installed by locally-based David Wing Design.”

reSAWN's MONOGATARI shou sugi ban charred cypress - spec'd by bld.us - featured in The Washingtonian
“Outside, the house is clad in cypress. Its dark hue wasn’t achieved with a chemical paint or stain but with a traditional Japanese charring method called shou sugi ban. Burning the wood in this way adds color and also helps waterproof and preserve the siding.”

Spotlight on CUBISM
Creating Geometric Interest with Western Red Cedar
CUBISM features both charred and non-charred western red cedar in a range of colors including neutral and bold color tones. Our CHARRED designs (CHOCHOL, 4TH DIMENSION & BAUHAUS) are 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 joinery and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light. Our non-charred designs (SALLE 41, DIAMANT, GRIS, MARE, NO. 609, VILLA SAVOYE, PABLO, & PRINCET) are designed to highlight the graphic interest of the wood grain and joinery. All designs are standardly offered in Clear grade and can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Application.
Spotlight on WEATHERED WOOD
reSAWN’s WEATHERED designs highlight wood’s natural beauty and allow the material to age gracefully in place with little to no maintenance. Some of the WEATHERED designs feature our reactive finishes which seek to minimize the variation between newly installed and aged wood siding. We also offer unfinished Kebony (see MARKA and RUSS) and Accoya (see KOWHAI) which are high performing exterior woods that are meant to weather naturally to grey post-install.
