Salvaged Slab To $6000 Desk

2 min read

This giant slab desk was made from one of the most underrated and beautiful wood species in all of North America. Clients often want walnut (understandably), but this client thought a little outside the box and we were able to find a gorgeous piece of locally salvaged wood from a very small sawmill (like just a guy and a chainsaw small). Oh, and I’ve added chapters to the video, so feel free to skip around as much as you want.
