Do you like the look of rugged wood furniture? Are you looking for enduring quality rather than what’s trendy this month? You’ll love solid slab wood for countertops, and you can find them right here in Maryland. We mill our own lumber so that you get the exact countertop that you want.
Where Do I Find Big Slabs of Wood for Countertops?
Many vendors don’t handle big slabs of wood for countertops. Slabs are bulky, require a lot of storage space and are expensive to ship. We have a large inventory of big slabs of wood for countertops for you to choose from, and we don’t have to truck them in from several states away. Most of our lumber is local, and we mill it ourselves.
We own one of the larger band saw mills on the East Coast and regularly cut logs up to five feet in diameter. We’re the best source in the Maryland area for big slabs of wood for countertops.
What Are the Advantages of Solid Slab Wood for Countertops?
Kitchen countertops made from solid slabs are the sturdiest countertops available. They’re ideal if you use cast iron cookware. Do you have a home bar? Slab countertops give your bar an authentic appearance and can withstand heavy barware and spills.
When you choose big slabs of wood for countertops, you save trees that would normally be discarded. Trees cut down to clear space for urban construction projects aren’t typically considered for use as lumber. We started our company with an environmentally responsible business model. Just like building our butcher block from scrap wood, milling trees from urban areas for slabs keeps usable hardwood from being wasted.
Are Solid Slab Wood for Countertops Right for My Kitchen?
We build custom slab countertops for every kitchen. A solid slab top can look rustic or classic depending on the wood and the edge. You choose the edge for your countertop, although our designers will be happy to help if you can’t make up your mind.
Many of our clients choose big slabs of wood for countertops because they want a live edge slab. A live edge slab has a natural edge and is best for kitchen islands, but can be used for a countertop if you want to make a dramatic statement. Solid slab construction displays the true beauty of the wood. The grain, texture and knotholes really stand out when you choose slabs for your countertops.
