“Live edge wood" refers to slabs of wood with one or more edges that are left unmilled, or natural, showing the living edge of the tree from which the logs were cut. Shaffer’s Rustic Mill
is one of the few mills in Houston, TX, that provides sustainably sourced, aged, and cured live edge slabs. Our slabs are available in unfinished, stained, or sealed. Contact us today to learn more about our selection and how we can help you create something beautiful!
What Is Live Edge Design?
Although frequently associated with rustic decor, live edge design fits well with practically any style that focuses on the beauty of natural wood and the tradition of craftsmanship. When you look at custom live edge furniture, you can almost imagine the majestic profile of the tree that yielded the logs. The edges of the slabs showcase the rough, thick texture of the tree’s surface, still visible and pristinely preserved. Live edge design is perfect for those who want to include the natural origins and uninhibited beauty of wood in their furniture and art.
Why Choose Shaffer’s Rustic Mill?
All wood used by Shaffer’s is locally sourced with sustainable logging practices. We provide live edge slabs because we appreciate the beauty of nature, and we want to preserve our forests for future generations. Cut from local oak, cypress, and hickory trees grown just two hours west of Houston, our slabs come pre-milled or cut to order. You can also have your piece stained or sealed for an additional fee.
By sourcing locally and milling our own slabs, we can provide extremely competitive prices. Here, there’s no middle man and no shipping or delivery fees built into your cost. We also offer milling services if you have fallen trees or other wood that you would like to turn into live edge slabs or project boards.
