Mojave Thermally Modified Wood
With sustainability in our roots, we strive to maintain ethical practices in everything we do. Aesthetics are important, but how a look is achieved is equally, if not more important.
Thermal modification creates durable wood materials using heat and steam with no chemicals. Delta Millworks has created distinct and appealing options using our expert finishing techniques.
Reclaimed & Repurposed
Old Souls Reclaimed Wood
Delta began salvaging and repurposing longleaf pine over three decades ago, and we work with very same materials and processes today. Delta prides itself on sourcing quality material, meticulously de-nailing boards and timbers, and sawing and milling large timbers into uniquely beautiful finished products.
Burning Wood beautifully
Shou Sugi Ban
Delta Millworks began burning wood in 2007, and we were instantly enthralled by the beautiful textures and grain patterns achieved by taking torches to timbers and boards. Shortly after beginning the craft, we realized we were reviving the Japanese tradition of “shou-sugi-ban.” This process is used to preserve the wood by charring it. The heavily-charred surface of the board makes the wood fire retardant as well as resistant to rot, insects and decay.
Kebony is a beautiful wood recommended by leading architects. It is sustainable, durable and requires no maintenance beyond normal cleaning. Kebony’s performance has been proven in a variety of applications including decking and cladding.
