The world’s most eco-friendly Rosewood. Indian Rosewood was brought to Florida in the mid 1800’s as a decorative flowering tree. Little did they know that it would become an invasive species that crowds out native indigenous trees. The area around our Florida Sawmill is one of the few places in the world where Rosewood has been deemed invasive. Once these slabs are surfaced they sure are one pretty Invader!!!! Our Florida Sawmill houses one of the world’s largest Urban Log Recycling programs. City trees that are either dead, diseased, dying, or invasive get milled into furniture slabs and shipped to woodworkers around the world. These slabs will make for awesome table slabs, desk, bar tops, and other furniture. Stop in, call or stalk us online to see more awesome hardwood! www.WoodSlabs.com
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.
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
Our Amazing Vacupress 2000 arrived in Sarasota, FL earlier this week. This will be our 2nd vacuum kiln and the larger of the two.
Vacuum drying is a very laborious process when compared to traditional forms of kiln but it delivers the straightest and most stable boards in the end. The process that vacuum drying goes through allows the wood to be dried without much oxygen and thus not affecting the colors of the woods.
We’ll be having this Vacupress up and running very soon and drying slabs faster to get them to you.
This week our Sarasota, FL facility broke ground for a new kiln and an extensive wood slab production space. The new wood slab space will provide us with more area to store and air-dry a greater selection of wood slabs. The 10,000-board-foot dehumidifying kiln will bring our company-wide drying capabilities to 600,000 board feet. This includes dehumidification, vacuum, and conventional steam kilns.
Live-Edge Wood Slabs are beautiful pieces that give us a glimpse inside the complicated beauty of trees. Think of a live-edge wood slab as a CAT scan where you can see the different layers the tree is made of, from bark to heartwood. While the common inclination is to create tables out of them, there are other ways to utilize their unique beauty.
