COLOR + WOOD

COLORFUL CHARRED WOOD FOR INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR APPLICATIONS

Red hot, tickled pink, green with envy, blue blood, red tape, yellow belly.  Color influences our everyday language and evokes physical, psychological and social responses.  Color in design can set a mood, provide an accent, or even elicit a visceral response.  reSAWN offers several wood designs in bright, bold colors.  Contact reSAWN to order samples or for more information on specifying these materials for your project – just ask for Roy G. Biv.

CHARRED + COLOR DESIGNS

Cypress is notable for its color consistency, density and hardness. Although cypress is a softwood, it grows alongside hardwoods and traditionally has been grouped and manufactured with hardwoods. The oils in cypress’ heartwood make it one of the most durable woods when exposed to moisture conditions causing decay. Cypress trees are natives of the south. They are found primarily in wet, swampy areas along the Atlantic Coastal Plain from Delaware to Florida.

These products are burnt and sealed and can be used for Interior Wall Cladding & Ceiling Cladding as well as Exterior applications.  Our CHARRED designs 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.

AO, AKA, YASAI, ORENJI, PINKU, HACHI and AKUA by reSAWN TIMBER co. feature CHARRED CYPRESS burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban. For exterior cladding, we offer Select Grade.  For interior applications, we offer #2 common and Select Grade. 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. These designs can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Application – please call to inquire.

These designs 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 creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.

EXPECT BEAUTIFUL WEATHERED WOOD
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.  

For exterior install guidelines, please call reSAWN at 215 709 2001.

CUBISM by reSAWN TIMBER co. features several designs on WESTERN RED CEDAR.  CUBISM WESTERN RED CEDAR is thoughtfully created using blocks ranging in lengths from 3” to 11”. Using only Clear A&Better Mixed Grain WESTERN RED CEDARthe blocks are joined together to create consistent plank dimensions of 11/16” thick X 6-3/4” wide X ALL 16’ Long with T/G joinery. The blocks are recovered from trim backs (typically a very high quality waste product) from various parts of the production process. The planks maintain the superior durability characteristics of WRC and has the additional benefits of staying straight and flat, allowing for little or no warp in the material prior to installation. The joinery adds graphic interest and a geometric pattern that both contrasts and compliments the natural grain of the cedar. MARE, VILLA SAVOYE, PRINCET and PABLO are standardly offered in Clear grade and can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Application.

CUBISM features both charred and non-charred western red cedar in a range of colors including neutral and bold color tones.  Explore all that CUBISM by reSAWN has to offer.
