  1. Shou Sugi Ban (焼杉板)

    Shou sugi ban is a Japanese tradition of burning wood siding that dates back hundreds of years. This method was done because the Japanese discovered that a heavily charred board used for siding was much more resistant to rot and insects, as well as far less likely to ignite when exposed to sparks or flames. The shou sugi ban method was vital in reducing fires but is now primarily used for its aesthetics and superior performance in exterior applications.

    Delta Millworks began producing shou sugi ban almost five years ago and has worked extensively to refine our methods and knowledge of the process. Today we offer dozens of variations of the product and have the capacity to produce large quantities with consistency. Our standards in quality are reinforced by the fact that we oversee every step in the production of the product. Once our wood is sourced and delivered to our mill in Austin, Texas, we custom mill, burn and finish the product all under the same roof, insuring that we deliver the exact specifications of the customer.

    We work with architects, designers, builders and home owners, offering design ideas and providing options of our various finishes and siding profiles. We primarily use Southern Cypress for our shou sugi ban products but can provide several other species as well. We enjoy cypress not only for its beauty and versatility with our various burning techniques, but for its sustainability and superior performance in exterior applications. We ship our products to anywhere in the United States, Canada or Europe. Check out our article in The Wall Street Journal

  1. 01. Shou-sugi-ban

    The wood version of weathering steel (the oxidization of steel to provide a protective barrier) is the Japanese tradition of shou-sugi-ban. Burning cedar or some other wood gives it a charcoal barrier that is rot and fire resistant ... and very distinctive looking.
    Available in varying degrees of burn & lumber.

    cypress doghouse

    Cypress is lightweight, scarce of knots, medium textured, and dimensionally stable with a closed straight grain. It is easy to cut, saw, nail, and resists splitting, warping, checking, splintering and cracking. Cypress wood compliments any interior or exterior architectural style.

  4. 04. Longleaf
    & Edge-Grain Pine

    Edge-Grain Yellow Pine is quarter-sawn out of the largest yellow pine trees available. This produces a product that is 100% vertical-grain, also called "edge-grain". Not only does this mean a beautiful piece of flooring or trim, but also Edge-Grain yellow pine is completely clear (free of knots). Also, because of its tight grain pattern, Edge-Grain can be stained to match some of the color and grain characteristics of antique longleaf pine. These characteristics allow for a highly versatile and beautiful piece of wood that is currently unavailable in the Central Texas market.
    Available in varying lengths.

  5. 05. Flooring

    Solid wood flooring adds a natural element to any living environment. Specializing in reclaimed longleaf pine and new Texas-grown yellow pine flooring, we can also provide a number of other domestic species of solid wood flooring.
    Available in | Cypress | Pine

  6. 06. SIDING

    We offer varrying arrays of siding lumber, exterior techniques and finishes.
