Our live edge hardwood slabs can be used for woodworking projects including dining room tables, coffee tables, work benches, dressers, and more. Each hardwood slab that Marwood produces is unique and one-of-a-kind. Our hardwood slabs are mostly locally sourced. A few of the species you can find on our Species Samples page are acquired from the Western region of the United States including Claro Walnut and Myrtle Cluster.
Marwood has been in the hardwood business for almost 100 years producing lumber and veneer out of Louisville, KY before moving operations to Southern, IN. Since 2013, Marwood has been producing live edge hardwood slabs and hardwood cookies. Recently, the demand for live edge hardwood slabs has increased among woodworkers because of its diversity in design and application. A woodworker who is looking to build a piece of furniture and bring a bit of the outdoors into their home can do that with a live edge hardwood slab. A restaurant that wants to soften the industrial nature of their bar or dining area can do so with table or bar tops made out of live edge hardwood slabs. The way in which live edge hardwood slabs can bring a combined sense of urban, rustic, classic chic to a piece of furniture or entire room depending on its application is very appealing and now woodworkers are incorporating live edges into their pieces more and more often.
All of our hardwood slabs are sawed from whole logs that vary in length and circumference. Our slabs are sawed at thicknesses that range between 1 inch and 4 inches. If customers want their slabs sanded, the end product varies in thickness. All hardwood slabs can be bought in sequence, so that the grain and crotch match for design consistency. Each slab is sawed, kiln-dried, and can be sanded if requested at our facility. We can sand the slabs in our 36″ wide belt finish sander using 80 grit sandpaper.
