This live edge cherry slab has been sanded smooth and several coats of an all-natural oil and beeswax finish have been applied. It has one straight side, as well as one live edge. The live edge is very pretty with its display of channels made by the little worm artists that lived between the sapwood and cambium layer of the tree. This finished slab would is perfect for setting atop brackets for a shelf, or floating shelf. (brackets in photo are not included with this slab)
Measurements approx. 22" long x 12" deep x 1.5" thick
**The wood used to make this product was harvested either on our family farm or a private woodlot within a 50 mile radius. We primarily harvest trees during the winter, when the ground is frozen and there is lesser chance of damage to the forest floor. This, too, is the time all our little critter friends are hidden away in their winters haven.
Trees are selectively cut using the “worst-first” method, and gingerly drug out with the help of a logging cart and our team of Suffolk draft horses, or low-impact tractor pulling. Logs are then taken to the farm’s sawmill, milled into lumber, and put into a solar kiln to dry.
Once the lumber has reached the proper moisture content it is turned into beautiful, functional products for all to enjoy! We intentionally select out lumber with beautiful character in the grain, so each piece has a unique appeal.
**we use only petroleum-free, natural oil finish.
