The physical and mechanical properties of sawdust-rice husk mixed ceramic were investigated with rice husk mixing ratios. The mixed ceramic board was produced with carbonization and resin impregnated sawdust-rice husk board at high temperature. At the same percentage of resin impregnation condition, density and bending strength of the mixed ceramic board increased with increasing the mixing rates of rice husk, whereas weight loss of the ceramic boards decreased. At the same temperature condition for the carbonization of resin impregnated sawdust-rice husk board, the density and bending strength were the highest with 40% of rice husk mixing ratio.
