The slabs are at least 2 inches thick and are cut at the full width of the tree, incorporating both the heartwood and the lighter sapwood for a beautiful color combination.
The bark is removed from the edges but the natural form is preserved making each bench a one-of-a-kind creation.
Most slabs show some "checking" or cracks which occur as the wood dries. These cracks can be stabilized with "dovetail keys" which can be incorporated as functional design elements. This technique was made popular by George Nakashima whose live-edge furniture featuring keys can be founded in museums and private collections.
This bench is 6 feet long and a full 18 inches wide.
