Surface & Texture
Newport Gray is once brushed and compares to what Japanese traditionally call Gendai. The texture is silky smooth to the touch and appears to have layers of waves varying in color from a June Gloom sky to dark storm clouds rolling in from the coast. The soot layer is approximately 1/32 inch (0.8 mm) thick. It is suitable for exterior or interior use. Newport Gray does not need to be oil finished for exterior applications but an oil pre-finish will bond in soot and slow down color weathering.
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.
