Water Oak / Laurel Oak
Many times mother nature creates work and opportunities for those of us in the urban lumber business. This was our first opportunity to work with Jeb from Above and Beyond Tree Services. As you’ll see from the following images, this was a big old tree. Jeb, however had a big ole chain saw.
The tree gave us five really nice logs to cut into slabs. Most of the slabs were cut 3-4″ thick. All were left with a natural edge on both sides. Stewart’s slabs were the first to be documented as we cut. There was a learning curve as I was the one taking the photographs and I got better as we went along.
The color and figure in these slabs is exceptional. We are showing a few images from each log. Please keep in mind that I took over 200 photos. There are over 30 slabs available.If you are interested in a particular slab please contact us. Also, contact us if you would like us to mail you the DVD with all the photos we took (210 images) specify “Stuart Wenzel” DVD. There is a $10 fee for the DVD, but if you return it in “like new” condition we will refund you $5.
Log #1 yielded 7 slabs
