Shou Sugi Ban

Burning Wood Beautifully

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.
