No matter what you want to create, oak wood slabs are a great option for live edge furniture.

Urbn Timber works with local arborists to source our oak logs, all of which have dropped due to sustainable causes. The logs are then brought to our lumber yard, where they are sawn into natural live edge wood slabs. Next, the oak slabs are air-dried for at least six months, and kiln-dried for another two months. We guarantee a single-digit moisture content in each oak wood slab before it gets fresh-cut to your specific design. Finally, the piece is ready to be crafted into a woodwork masterpiece.
