Live Edge Wood Slabs
Experience The Beauty of Live Edge In Your Home
Your home is where you spend most of your time – relaxing, enjoying family time, and even working. Your home should reflect your personality and feel inviting.
For homeowners who appreciate the natural beauty of wood, live edge slabs allow for creative ways to incorporate nature inside the home. The size of these slabs helps to convey the wonder of giant trees in nature within your living space.
All of our live edge wood slabs are sustainably sourced from local lumber operations and arborists. We select only the highest quality slabs that highlight the organic features of the wood, like the shape of the tree and its grain pattern. This makes live edge slabs some of the biggest pieces of wood that we sell. Consider that slabs are best suited for large furniture or home architecture projects.

Finishing Touches: Enhancing the Beauty of Live Edge Wood
While we can ship your slab unfinished, it’s vital that live edge is finished to preserve it for years to come. Unfinished wood is more likely to suffer from wear and tear from moisture, pests, and everyday use.
Our woodworkers offer nine different finishes with additional sheen options for select finishes. Whether you want to stain the wood to highlight the grain or maintain as much of the natural look and feel as possible, we have an option for you.
If you’re unsure which finish will work best for you, let us help you figure that out. Give us a call at 800.798.1269 and we’ll explain the different options so you can make the best decision based on how you plan to use the slab.
Epoxy Options For Added Color
Alongside finishing, we can add epoxy resin to the slab. Available in more than a dozen different colors, the epoxy fills in the natural gaps, cracks, and knots within the wood.
This not only creates a more even surface, but it offers a unique aesthetic that highlights the imperfections of the wood with striking colors.
Caring For Live Edge
Every piece of wood is unique, so it might have individual needs, but there are some general live edge care practices that you can follow to help preserve your slab.
Avoid abrasive cleaners; these can damage the finish and the underlying wood. Instead, clean any spills promptly with a damp cloth and mild soap if necessary, then wipe dry.
Finally, a wax-based furniture polish can help protect the finish and enhance the natural beauty of the wood. Apply this a few times a year, following the manufacturer's instructions.
