Bandon Burn is a collaboration of small to midsize family owned Oregon companies working together to bring an authentic Northwest product to market. These companies have partnered for decades remanufacturing and marketing a variety of forest products on an international level. Bandon Burn is the original source of Oregon grown Port Orford Cedar Charred Wood Siding done in the style of yakisugi "shou sugi ban". We model traditional Japanese techniques to deliver a product that is beautiful, and authentically Pacific Northwest. We distribute forest to customer through this unique and regional collaboration.
We source our beautiful Port Orford Cedar from a second-generation family owned sawmills located in the Coquille Valley of South Western Oregon. These families have harvested and thoughtfully managed timberlands for several decades using practices prescribed by the Oregon Forest Practices Act (FPA).
Our craftsman located in the heart of the Willamette Valley have a long - standing reputation of producing high-grade and high-value remanufactured forest products including siding, flooring and timber frame components.
Oregon has always had a large domestic forest products industry focused on quality, value and sustainability. We support small family owned businesses and enjoy seeing beautiful timber transpire into one of a kind projects.
Original: We seek to offer a unique, handcrafted Oregon product inspired by our Japanese friends that respects our natural resources and supports our local economy. Port Orford Cedar otherwise known as Oregon White Cedar or Ginger wood has the highest strength ratings of all the cedar species and superior decay resistance. Its light colored wood, consistent texture and straight grain make it the best choice for remanufacturing.
Quality: Every tree we use has been hand selected by our sawmill with an eye for straightness and clarity and is subject to the highest grading standards of the Pacific Lumber Inspection Bureau (PLIB). Once cut the cedar remains smooth with no raised grain or splintering. Carefully burned, machine brushed, and hand finished, each siding piece is consistently beautiful.
Our Inspired Products
Bandon Black - Our original charred surface compares to what the Japanese traditionally call Suyaki. Bandon Black is a dense char resembling reptile skin. Unlike a snake, it compels you to touch it. 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.
Newport Grey - Is the result of being brushed and compares to what the Japanese traditionally call Gendai. Newport 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 does not need to be oil finished for exterior applications but an oil pre-finish will bond in soot and slow down color weathering.
Gold Beach - Is twice brushed and compares to what the Japanese traditionally call Pika-Pika. Gold Beach resembles a smooth 3D topographic map of the coast range. The brushing removes the summer wood leaving the heavily textured charred winter wood prominent. The soot layer is completely brushed off. It is suitable for exterior and interior uses. Ships pre-finished to the customer.
