Live edge simply means that the tree has not been milled up into boards so there is an exposed bark edge that dips and dives naturally. Because we are a small operation, we hand pick all of our slabs from sawyers around New England. However, there are also many slab choices for you to look at on the Berkshire Products website that we could use in your project.
Most often, we “bookmatch” two slabs together, which means we cut one straight side on each piece and attach them, leaving the outsides of the piece “live.”
“Faux" live edge means we attach one of our live edge off-cuts to laminated boards. This is a less expensive way to get a live edge look and it is often very hard to tell the difference.
Currently we do not have the capacity to work on slabs longer than 12 feet and wider than 40 inches.
