Traditionally Inspired, American Made™—an 18th century technique for preserving wood with fire is updated to meet 21st century design and performance standards. With our Cedar Once-brushed we aggressively burn each board, then brush off the softest layer of char resulting in a smooth, dark and slightly textured surface that can be left without a finish or coated with an array of exterior grade colors—shown here in Smoke; a warm gray.
Shou Sugi Ban Cedar Once-Brushed gives a rich, saturated dark finish. Closest to the traditional species for making shou sugi ban, Cedar is known for being a domestic insect-repellent species especially well-suited for exterior applications. Boards include sound tight knots, giving character to a hardy siding option while celebrating the tradition of the Shou Sugi Ban technique.
