Wood Slab Tables – Creating a Legacy | Rochester, NY | Timberkrete
Reclaiming and Preserving the Genesee Valley Oaks
As with everything, trees also age. The passing years and the elements change them and ultimately there comes a time when they have to be removed. Such is the case with some of the massive oaks scattered throughout the Genesee Valley. In fact, the one pictured below was taken off of the Wadsworth track and is over six foot wide, 7000 lbs and 202 years old. So what do you do with such gigantic and historic pieces of timber?
This is where we come in…Specializing in just this very thing: preserving trees that have otherwise stood the test of time up until now, Rochester, NY based Timberkrete transforms pieces like this into wood slab tables, benches, shelving units, you name it. And we couldn’t be happier that we are able to allow the legacy of a tree like this continue on.
The Process of Creating Legacy Pieces: Wood Slab Tables and Other Furnishings
These will in fact be legacy pieces. Rather than discard the oaks, or chip them up into mulch, or worse, simply let them rot, the Timberkrete team is invested in creating wood slab pieces that truly do mean something.
Generally, when faced with raw timber that is over 6 feet wide, the task would seem daunting to many. Not the case for us.
