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. 

4TH DIMENSION is burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban and can be used for interior wall cladding (call for exterior). 4TH DIMENSION is standardly offered in Clear grade and can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Application.

4TH DIMENSION 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 joinery and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.

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.

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.
