We love working with wood. We harvest trees that would otherwise just rot or be turned into mulch throughout New York—from Rochester, to Buffalo, to Syracuse. Our customers seem to like the richness, depth and solidity of the wood slabs we have in our inventory. Some even get pretty creative when it comes to their wood slab projects. We asked a few of our Syracuse, NY customers what they’ve done with the wood slabs they purchased…here are their answers.
Getting Creative with Wood Slabs in Syracuse NY
Of course many utilize the slabs for tables—everything from kitchen, to coffee table, to solid slab dining table.
A number of people went the bench route. We even had a few Syracuse based customers have us take a tree that was special to them and create slabs which they then turned into legacy benches.
One client used slabs as wall shelves. Especially if using a live edge slab, you can get a really cool effect. Just keep in mind the wood slabs are quite heavy and thus need to be anchored in studs.
We had a couple of Syracuse area customers even utilize slabs as cutting boards—you do want to make sure that those are treated properly before use.
Finally, another creative wood slab use: a canvas for a painting. This was truly original. The slab itself became the actual canvas and then they painted beautiful images on it. Again, when hanging painting wood slabs up, ensure you’re going into the stud.
