Surface & Texture
Bandon Black is the original charred surface and compares to what Japanese traditionally call Suyaki. The texture is a dense char resembling reptile skin. The soot layer is approximately 1/16 inch (1.5 mm) thick. This finish is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. If used indoors it should be properly sealed to bond the soot.
Select - JAS “Small Knot" grade allows for up to 20 tight or 10 dead knots per 79" (2m) board length. Unlimited combination of heartwood and sapwood, pith allowed. Checks allowed to 1/16" as long as plank stability, weather-resistance, and cosmetics are not adversely affected.
Native to Oregon and NW California, Chamaecyparis lawsoniana is a species of conifer also known as Port Orford Cedar, white or Oregon-cedar, ginger-pine, or Lawson cypress. Renowned for its beauty and structural integrity, useful for both indoor and outdoor applications. Port-Orford-Cedar has earned a reputation for strength and decay-resistance. It is a particularly hard and strong cedar with the similar or superior natural durability as other types of cedar when it comes to weather, rot and insects.
