Shake was originally hand hewn wood, created by splitting thin individual rectangles from a log. In the Americas, wood roofing was common from the early days of the colonies due to the abundance of suitable forest. Wood shingles were usually split from the most appropriate wood that was regionally available, such as cypress, cedar, pine, redwood, or oak.
