Slab table on driftwood

This handcrafted slab coffee table is made from a 3″ thick maple slab with a driftwood(also called root) base. A slab top has a natural edge on the front and back side and is made from a large piece of wood sliced vertically. We typically make slab tables from pine, cedar, red cedar, and maple. Slab tables are custom made to any size. A typical coffee table would be 48″ in length, 18″ tall and 18″ deep. We also make benches in this same height to various lengths from 24″ to 96″ and normally 12″ – 15″ deep. The slab tops can be 2″ thick to 5″ thick.

Slab tables can be made for use as end tables, night stands, benches, coffee tables, sofa tables, kitchen tables, and pub tables or any other table size or height. They can range in size of small phone stand 12″ square to a large dinning table to seat 10.  The natural edge allows natures beauty to shine through. All of our slab tables are one of a kind as no two trees are identical.  With the wide variety of wood that can be used a slab table can accent any decor.

Slab table on stump

This slab pine end table was handcrafted by our artisians from a 2″ thick pine slab. The base is a cedar stump. A stump base is another option for any slab table and some large dining room tables are crafted with two stumps to hold the weight and balance the table top. These are just a few examples of the slab furniture our artisans can handcraft for you. Everyday our artisans work with people just like you creating the perfect accent piece for your home. If you can dream up an idea we can build it custom for you. We start by creating a sketch and even let you pick your slab and stump base if you want.
