The Sakaide planks of the Douglas fir are plain sawn (parallel with the annual rings). The planks are then charred one by one in the flames of our oven. After that the charred wood is thoroughly brushed and oiled.
Sakaide for interior use is rubbed with Tung oil. Tung oil is derived from the nut of the Tung tree (Vernicia fordii). The air cures the oil, which results in a deep gloss. The oil gives a deep and warm glow, but is less resistant to UV. If necessary, the wood can be rubbed again when it loses its sheen.
