Live-Edge Wood Slabs, Hardware & Services

June 27, 2017

Live-edge wood is a GORGEOUS foundation for tables, counter tops, benches, mantels — or anything you are inspired to create.The character and individuality of the tree comes through for a true one-of-a-kind project.

Here at Sears Trostel we stock a large selection of live-edge wood slabs in a variety of sizes, shapes and wood species.

See the Live-Edge Wood Slab Gallery

Our live-edge wood slabs come from both 'salvaged' and live-timber sources.

Many of the slabs we carry are locally-sourced and salvaged from trees in the Northern Colorado area. These trees were cut due to disease, injury, age or construction purposes. A Sears Trostel associate can answer questions on the source of a piece when purchasing a slab from our stock.

Even if you’re not a woodworker, Sears Trostel can help incorporate one of these beautiful live-edge wood pieces into your interior landscape.

Go from a live-edge wood slab to a contemporary table in minutes with Hair-Pin Legs. The legs are easily installed with just a few screws.

Hair-Pin Table Legs

Rolled Hair-Pin Table Leg options:
  • 3-Rod cold-rolled steel with black satin finish, 28 in.
  • 2-Rod cold-rolled raw steel, 16 in.

Flat-Bar Hair-Pin Table Leg options:
  •  2” wide steel bar with black satin finish, 16 and 28 in.
  •  1-1/2” wide bar in raw steel, 16 and 28 in.
Sears Trostel carries a variety of General Finishes coating products to protect and enhance the live-edge wood, or for a more smooth and flat table top, we offer Epoxy-Filling services.

Epoxy is added to fill, strengthen and enhance natural characteristics in the wood. A clear top-coat finish should then be applied over the whole slab.

Live-edge wood slabs make beautiful shelves and mantels. Mounting is simplified with Steel Shelf & Mantel Brackets in 17, 33 and 52 inch sizes. We  also offer boring and routing services to fit the wood perfectly to the bracket and flush with the wall.
