A method of making a dense silicon carbide ceramic is disclosed involving the steps of homogeneously dispersing silicon carbide with a sufficient amount of a boron containing additive and a carbonaceous additive, forming the powder mixture into a shaped green body and then sintering the body in a controlled atmosphere and in the absence of external pressure at a temperature of about 1900.degree.-2100.degree. C. such that density of the body is at least 85% of the theoretical density of silicon carbide. The complex shaped silicon carbide product formed thereby is also disclosed.
