Our natural live edge slabs are remarkable because we saw our logs across the grain, exposing the beautiful inner wood of our carefully selected, urban hardwood trees. We cut them into slabs that vary from 12″ up to as wide as 68″, creating large wooden surfaces for tabletops, countertops, kitchen islands, conference tables, sliding doors, bar tops, desktops, and more. Once cut, we use spacers to ensure the wood dries appropriately during the aging process, which can take as long as a year. Once dried, the slab is placed into a kiln, where it is dried to between 8% and 10% moisture. Then, the slabs are expertly surfaced using a surfacing machine to create these home furnishings.
While live edge slabs are our most popular choice, we also provide reclaimed flooring, beams, and other home furnishings. The variation in urban trees causes a wide variety of styles and grain so that almost every piece is unique. At River Valley Woodworks, we are careful to select and prepare the wood so that it is both unique and reliable. We provide woodworking pieces for residential customers, construction contractors, and commercial properties in and around Treasure Valley and Boise, ID. Whether you need a piece custom- created for you or you would like to choose one from our shop, we offer something for every woodworking aficionado.
