A Little About Our Live Edge Slabs

Our live edge slabs are sawn as flitches. This means that the slabs that come from a single log get stored together.  That's why you'll notice that every slab we offer has both a log ID and slab ID noted on the product variant image after you choose the slab you'd like. Slabs with the same log ID come from the same log.

All of the wood slabs we sell are both air and kiln dried.  We do have green live edge slabs as well, but we don't typically recommend using green wood for making tables or other furniture.  The kiln dried slabs are typically air dried for around two years, then put in the kiln.  We recommend only using kiln dried slabs because this will keep the slabs from warping as they naturally dry if you build something out of them when they're green. They are waiting to be crafted into a beautiful table or other piece of furniture!

Please note that all measurements for our live edge slabs are simply estimates.  The width used for each slab is an average of 3 measurements taken at random locations on the slab.  We measured the left, right, and center of each slab.  The width will also shrink by around half an inch (possibly more) if you choose to have us plane and sand your slab.  If you don't choose this service, the slab will be rough cut as pictured.

We now offer local shipping on our slabs, which is subject to 3rd party availability.  We do not assume responsibility for any damage from shipping.  We work with a 3rd party that offers delivery for $40/hr round trip.  Other expenses, such as hotel stays or trailer rentals must be paid up front by the slab buyer.

We are also happy to coordinate a pickup date with you during our normal business hours.  Pickups are at our shop in Quarryville, PA.  Please read our guide about transporting and storing your slabs prior to picking them up. We recommend using a trailer, not a pickup truck for slabs over 8' so they can lay flat.  We are not responsible for any damage or warping after the item is picked up.  Please inspect your slabs at pickup for any defects.


Live Edge Slab Price Chart

Our live edge slab pricing is fairly straight forward.  We calculate the prices based on width, thickness, and total board feet.  The width is based on an average of 3 measurements across the slab.  Any slab listed that doesn't follow this pricing structure would be considered a premium slab.  Premium slabs such as any cookies, burls, or exotic woods in our inventory.

Featured Slab Project

Our friends at Flinchbaugh Engineering purchased 2 massive sycamore slabs in September of 2020.  Lancaster Live Edge flattened and sanded the slabs, and Flinchbaugh took it from there.   This is the largest river pour one of our slab customers has done to date and it turned out beautiful! This table is now the centerpiece in the conference room at their manufacturing facility.
