Live Edge Slab Furniture
We look for the most interesting log to make our live edge wood slabs out of. The slabs are anywhere from 12" to 30" wide, 2" to 3" thick, and 4 to 12 ft long. Most of our slabs have either 1 or 2 live (natural) edges. Species include: walnut, hard maple, ash, oak, elm, and more. Check our Hardwood Slabs
and Custom Designed Home Furnishings
pages to learn more.
Using either your wood or ours, we work with you to design and build custom heirloom pieces that will last generations. With all of our work we emphasize the natural beauty of the wood we use.
Our usual live edge projects include:
- Dining Tables
- Counter/Bar/Island tops

Trees to Treasures
Do you have ash trees that are being removed? Hate to see the wood go into the landfill or be burned? Ash is a REMARKABLE
wood. We have done many, many
projects with ash including paneling, flooring, mantels, beams, etc. Learn What You Can Do With Your Ash Logs
Do you have to remove a hardwood tree that has died or because of construction you are doing?
Instead of cutting your valuable tree up for firewood or paying to landfill the wood, we can
convert your logs into a finished product that you can use in your home.
Flooring, paneling, moldings, boards, casements, and fireplace mantels are only some of the things you can
get from your logs. This is both better for the environment and cheaper for you.
Are you new to having logs sawn or lumber dried/milled? Have questions on how the process works? We can help.
Our What To Expect page is a good place to start.
Sizing your job will help to give you a rough estimate of how much wood you'll get from your trees and
how long it'll take to mill the logs to lumber.
Contact us for more information before you cut your tree down.
Our usual projects include:
- Standard/custom sized kiln dried lumber
- Hardwood slabs
- Furniture of all sorts
- Hardwood cookies
- Stair components

So how much is it going to cost me?
Every job is different and is billed on an ala-carte basis. Before any work begins, we will review the full process with you including estimated costs.
How long will my job take?
We will go over scheduling with you when booking your project. Sawing jobs can usually be scheduled within a week or so. Kiln drying jobs typically only take 1 or 2 weeks in the kiln; this does not include the time until a spot opens up. The timing for furnishing are variable; 6 to 8 weeks is common.
We are not offering onsite sawing at this time! All sawing will be completed at our Mankato, MN shop.
