Our signature surfaces with the bark edges are so trendy. They are used for many DIY projects including home décor, wedding décor and centerpieces. We now have a limited supply of Basswood Country Slabs™ available – and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Due to the natural characteristics of these unique and one-of-a-kind slabs, the width, shape and depth will vary with each individual piece. These natural characteristics add rustic beauty and allow each Slab to have its own unique features.
Basswood Country Slabs™ are kiln dried to keep the bark intact and to prevent cracking. The rounded side is covered with bark while the bottom is rough-cut and rustic. We take great care to keep the bark intact during our processing and drying time.
When I first saw the Slabs, I had all kinds of ideas running around in my head. They are perfect for centerpieces, tablescapes, DIY shelves and peg racks, bookends, table markers, rustic wedding décor, cabin décor and other creative uses.
I made a holder for LED votives – just drill holes to fit. Note: All of the Slabs do not have moss on them.
You can see more about the Basswood Country Slabs™ here. Take a look – I think you’ll agree that they would fit very well into a rustic Thanksgiving or Christmas.
