For the production of Sakaide, planks of the Douglas fir are sawn parallel to the annual rings. The planks are then individually charred in the flames of our oven. Next, the charred wood is thoroughly brushed and stained. The difference between the dark and light sections of the softwood gives Sakaide an attractive, rustic look. In combination with the structure of our other burnt woods, it makes for a beautiful contrast. Sakaide for exterior use gets a transparent, UV-resistant finish. This treatment must be repeated every 2-4 years.
