Our Yakisugi products (Shou Sugi Ban products) 

Our Yakisugi products come in three basic traditional surfaces: Suyaki (original charred), Gendai (brushed once), and Pika-Pika (brushed twice).

Nakamoto Forestry Europe inventories all three in multiple grades, profiles, and oil finishes at our workshop. That’s how we are able to deliver quickly and service your projects across Europe on time. Furthermore, we offer the three surfaces in a variety of dimensions, wood grades, profiles, and oil prefinishes. Please inquire about our currently available stock.

Each board is expertly graded by hand to the specific end product at each step in production, and boards that warp, check, or are otherwise blemished are deselected.  Additionally, due to the nature of cypress we putty with resin glue to minimize and repair loose knots, then finally apply earth-friendly, highest-grade oil prefinishes to bond in soot, achieve a customer-specified colour tone, and slow down the weathering process.
