Where to Source Wood Slabs? | Syracuse, NY | Timberkrete
Here’s the thing…it’s pretty simple really, when sourcing wood slabs, you want to look for a supplier/manufacturer that has ample inventory. What’s more, they have to understand how to get the best cuts from that inventory. Many of our Syracuse area clients were on the hunt for that perfect wood slab, be it for a table or countertop for example, and they just could not find what they were looking for. That is why they came to us.
We have spent nearly a decade amassing one of the largest collections of raw timber in the upstate and western New York region. It’s about knowing what to look for from a fallen tree thereby ensuring that you’ll get the best wood slabs possible from it. And it is also about the willingness to go out, when called, to look at a potential piece of timber. To date, we have millions of board feet ready to go for your Syracuse, New York area project.
Finding Wood Slabs in Unexpected Places
True, we have gotten walnut, hickory, red oak and the like from more traditional sources. But often it is about unearthing hidden gems in unexpected places. For instance, Syracuse homeowners will call. They have a beloved tree that needs to be taken down. And yet they don’t want to part with it completely. For whatever reason, be it nostalgia, the site of a cherished memory or just an attachment to that tree, they want to preserve its legacy. This is precisely what we do.
We will go out to the upstate NY home and assess the tree’s usability as far as creating amazing wood slabs from it. If it works (and we can almost always make it work) we will set about prepping that tree for its new life as a live edge table or bar, among the many other incarnations it can take.
Other Places We’ve Discovered Untapped Potential
You’d be surprised at how many trees just sit, rotting away in landscape yards for example. They are waiting to be turned into mulch. There is incredible potential there. Our years of experience help us to see that potential and thus rescue that tree. In other words, it doesn’t have to be fated with becoming merely mulch.
We can turn into a magnificent outdoor bench. Or how about a kitchen island top complete with live edge. Our clients certainly have some creative ideas. And our job is to take what was otherwise going to be discarded timber and transform it into something people can enjoy for the rest of their lives.
