reSAWN’s CHARRED collection features cypress, black walnut, red oak, and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban. The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing all 4 sides). The charcoal barrier created through this process preserves the wood, and is fire, rot and insect resistant.
