The Live Edge Wood Slabs Process.
In the Fall I have to go into the fields where men are cutting slabs of wood from downed green trees. I hand pick the wood and it’s cut by big saws with long blades. I bring it back to the Studio and it has to be stacked with wood spaces between each slab and weights left to dry during spring and summer months. The wood will dry for 6-9 months.
Some slabs will bow up during this process and they can make an interesting piece. Meaning I may go ahead and burn on some design regardless of the bow. After the wood has dried it can be unstacked and used. I finish some slabs because I like them or may they may be needed for a job. The finish wood it can be run through a plainer up to a certain width and then sanded with 60,80,100,220,320,400 grit and paper.
Our wood slabs are sold by the board foot and there is a price for the RAW wood and a price for the FINISHED wood. This long process means that each year I will only have a certain number of slabs there is no way to hurry the drying time. I can or customers can purchase slabs at other lumber yards, and I can finish and or burn designs on any species of wood. I engage in competitive pricing on wood slabs.
Free estimates for wood burning artwork. If you would like a design added to your wood slab, contact me after your purchase.
All wood is approximate species, but not guaranteed.
