The appearance of this stunning-looking plank is due to an ancient Japanese process known as Yakisugi.

Centuries ago, driftwood recovered from the coastlines around Japan was highly prized for its appearance and durability. But demand was high and supply was short, so the Japanese devised an alternative weathering technique: fire. Yakisugi is Japanese for ‘burnt cedar board’ – cedar being a commonplace wood – and these charred planks became very popular for external use. But, as timber fell into increasingly short supply in Japan, its usage was replaced with modern plastics and cement, and Yakisugi became a ‘lost’ technique.

Recently the technique has been rediscovered; but our interest in it was not as a preservative but for the way in which the charring and cleansing process emphasises the grain structure and knots. Using pine for its particularly interesting grain, we have created a simply stunning plank which is suitable for all interior cladding purposes.

In addition to the four Yakisugi products detailed on this website, a further dozen vibrant colours shown in the images above are available to order. Please call us for more details.

What is a wood veneer?

A wood veneer is essentially a very thin slice taken from a slab of timber. Indeed, usually it is very thin indeed - more of a sliver than a slice - and the slices are joined together to form a much larger piece, a term known as “laid up”.

This product, however, is not a veneer in the accepted sense. It is simply a plank of solid wood that is thinner than usual. In fact, because it has been produced specifically for use as cladding, it is less than half the thickness of our usual flooring planks. This means that it is less than half the weight, a bonus when cladding. And because it use far less timber it is more cost-effective. Of course, it has still been milled to the same exacting tolerances as our standard solid or engineered planks, which means that it will be as consistent as always and just as easy to install.

What is meant by rustic grade?

Whilst you are no doubt aware that wood is graded according to its appearance, you may be surprised to learn that there are no international grading standards. At Havwoods we deal with many different mills, from many different countries, so for consistency we have defined our own grading rules.

This board uses rustic grade timber, which means that it is visually very interesting. It will certainly contain knots and there are no limits to their size or number. Knots are formed when a branch has died and its base has become enclosed by subsequent layers of trunk wood as the tree grows, so their presence is emphasised by the grain of the wood flowing around it. Filler is used in the larger knots, the colour carefully selected to complement the wood rather than to match it exactly. The colour of the filler may vary.

As a rustic grade wood it will also contain both heartwood and sapwood and there will be colour variation. You may also see some checks (cracks across the growth ring) and possibly some end shake (cracks between the rings). None of these are cause for concern.
