Should Sugi Ban – Charred Wood


We’re happy to announce that we’re now offering Shou Sugi Ban charred wood products including;  Solid + Engineered Hardwood Flooring, shiplap, wall paneling, exterior wood siding / cladding, fencing + more.

Shou Sugi Ban aka Yakisugi is a Japanese wood preservation technique that goes back centuries. This process involves burning or charring wood, the carbonization that occurs from burning the wood makes it more resistant to moisture and insects. Today, shou sugi ban has found a new life here in the US and it’s being used by some of the best architects and designers for wall paneling, siding, fencing and more because of it’s one of a kind look.

After much trial and error we’ve finally found a way to char wood to the exact degree desired and do it evenly on each and every board. We’ve built a one of a kind conveyor system specifically for this application that allows us to control all variables in the process. Our wood charring system has the capacity to handle large quantities efficiently which allows us to handle any size orders.

Below we’ve provided some of our charred wood offerings. In addition to the products listed below we’re also welcoming any custom projects near or far for wood siding, interior wall paneling, wood fencing, flooring etc. Please feel free to contact us about your project, we’d appreciate the opportunity to price the materials for you and work with you to find the exact product/look you desire.
