Last week some really sweet white oak slabs, actually an entire matching log set including 9 slabs, was delivered at the studio.
I really enjoy and think it's important to know where my materials are coming from and how they are sourced. Over the past couple years I've traveled out to Pennsylvania to visit and select timber from Horizon Hardwoods. After the first visit and meeting with the man who started this business over 40 years ago, I could tell it was their passion to source not only the best timber, but to mill it in a way that creates a superior product.
Off-loading and numbering. Some slabs are all ready spoken for but there is plenty wood left and up for grabs!
Below is a sweet walnut slab from the same folks getting it's first coat of oil and getting prepped for its base and delivery.
