The mass and weight of these huge slabs of wood make them a good option for regional buyers who can pick them up at our shop.  Shipping LTL can cost more than the slab itself. Therefore, we only ship this product by the truckload.  We’ll gladly load your shipper at our shop as well.

Click the “Shop Our Current Inventory” button below to start your selection process. The Catalog includes a photo and price of every slab we currently have in inventory.  You’ll be able to select species, general shape, and size using filters to eliminate products that do not fit your needs and helps narrow your final selection.  When you have a few favorites in mind, please email the inventory number from the catalog to schedule an appointment.  We can have your slabs or mantels pulled and waiting for you to see, during your visit.  You are the most important aspect of our work.  That’s why we’ve organized the process to focus on meeting your needs.  Your appointment will ensure we are capable to do this while you are here.  We love wood, so finding that perfect slab for each client is important to us.

Wood Figure in Appalachian Species

These trees speak through the grain of their wood. Technical terminology for characteristics such as Curly, Spalted, Quilted, Wormy, and Burly are simple labels for extremely complex growth and figure resulting from a myriad of stresses and injuries that the tree has endured.  This figure can be difficult to see in a rough board for the untrained eye, but once our raw wood slabs have been finished you will be captivated by the depth and movement as the grain tells the story of its life.

Our sawing technique called “slabbing” means that once we choose the direction to slice, we make repeated parallel cuts until all boards are freed. We don’t cut the bark edges off as to leave the natural “live edge” intact. After a period of air drying to relieve the boards of excess moisture, we finish dry and sterilize them in our kilns before offering the finished, raw wood slabs to you.
