Our Brazil mill just finished these live edge Tigerwood table slabs. They are cut and stacked in book matched sets and ready to leave our mill in Brazil. These are being shipped to our Florida facility for distribution to our US and Canadian customers. No order is too small or large whether its one slab, two slabs, or a full container load.

Live Edge Slab Table Made From Australian Beefwood

Live Edge Table - Australian Beefwood

This is one massive Beefwood slab! This glue-up contains 6 separate slabs that blend together almost seamlessly to make it resemble one large slab. Australian Beefwood was introduced to Florida in the late 1800s and quickly became an invasive species, threatening the local ecosystem. Beefwood gets its name from its combination of red and maroon colors with gray rays, similar to the appearance of raw beef. Beefwood is one of the hardest woods growing in the US and has grain ranging from straight to swirly. This combination makes it an interesting wood for table slabs, furniture tops, turning, gluing, and finishing. Contact us now to get one of your very own! 1-877-232-3915

This line is smaller but is fully rebuilt and cutting some very accurate rough sawn blanks. Having good rough sawn lumber can effect the moisture consistency when kiln drying and the quality of the final product. Some big Tigerwood logs are lined up for live edge table slabs next week.

Deck Safety – Proper Fasteners & Fastener Locations

It is that time of year again.  Old man winter has finally decided to make his annual retreat leaving us with warm days and warmer thoughts.  This month w shake off the sweatshirt and trade it in for a bathing suit.  Before you put the hot coffee down and run out for a cold beer there’s a couple things you should double check.  The thing that may take the spring out of your step the quickest, is a sprained ankle.

May is NADRA’s (North American Deck and Railing Association) “deck safety month” for good reason.  This is the time of year we really start to use our decks often.  Based on data from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 6,000 people are injured each year in incidents involving the structural failure or collapse of a deck or porch.  The worst part of these accidents isn’t that they ruin a spring and summer but more that they are preventable with a little bit of forethought and diligence.  You are going to want to make sure that everything is sturdy instead of appearing sturdy.  One of the most common failure points is the ledger.  Here’s a couple things to look for on a ledger.
