SALE!!! Was $39.99 Now $35.99!!

Neat shelf for books or drill holes in it, add hooks and make into a coat rack. This piece is very sturdy!

This piece has been hand sanded and is super smooth, including the edges which have a slight bevel to them. I applied three coats of Vermont's Natural Coating which has no off gassing and is made from renewable whey. Why every wood worker doesn't use this stuff is puzzling to me. I sand between each coat with 220 grain sand paper for an extra smooth finish.

The measurements are approximately 33 inches (length) by 9 inches (width) by 1 inch (depth).
If you need this piece cut shorter let me know and I'll do so with no additional charge.

2nd picture: Bottom side.
3rd picture: Top side.
4th picture: is a close up of the detail notice the tight wood grain.
5th picture: Cool accent.

All my slab wood has been air dried which means no future warping, cracking, twisting, swelling or shrinking. Be careful buying wood not properly dried!

This listing is for the slab wood only ;)> As always I'll be adding more slabs soon!

******** When Inquiring About Custom Orders

When e-mailing me about custom pieces be sure to include the type of wood you'd like, the measurements (length X width X thickness), whether or not you want a live edge (with natural outside of the tree, may or may not have bark depending on species), duel live edge (both sides have bark) or duel straight edge (both edges cut clean). Also for accurate shipping include your zip code.

I try to ship as soon as I can, usually within 24 hours or sooner, however sometimes I'm out at sea for a few days. If I'm slow to respond please realize I am out of human contact and will get back to you as soon as possible :)>

******** Out of Country Shipping

I will ship anywhere in the world but I will need to know your location to get accurate shipping prices ;)

******** Bridgeton Art Gallery's Refund Policy

I will accept any return that is damaged upon arrival or is the incorrect item(s). Any item that grossly differs from the listing. As long as the item is returned to me, at which time I will refund your money for the item and shipping costs. I will not accept returns for items simply due to dislike or changed minds.

I make every effort to present the pieces as true to the actual piece as possible through digital means. Colors will be slightly different from monitor to monitor in some cases due to different monitor color, contrast, and brightness settings. All my wood is sealed with a clear coat and is the natural color of the wood. Once a piece is sold I re-exzamine the piece once retrieved from storage and will contact the purchaser if the wood has altered in anyway before the shipment is sent out. I want my collectors to be happy with their purchase!

******** Bridgeton Art Gallery Canncellation Policy

I will allow cancellations if you can catch me in time before I ship which is usually daily. I do charge a %15 restocking fee. It takes me about 40 minutes to an hour to locate, wrap and package each wood slab (this is the one area of all my work I like the least!) If you are considering a different slab I will put the money towards that purchase. I do after all want everyone happy, but the less time I spend on milling, sanding and detail work the less slabs that are produced!

******** The Beginnings of Bridgeton Art Gallery!

While working with a friend of mine, clearing fallen trees after hurricane Irene, I couldn't believe the amount of good hardwood that was being chopped up and left on the roadside for the city to pick up and later mulch. I wanted to get as much of it as possible and make all kinds of furniture out of it. I was able to get my hands on some hickory and blackwalnut. I had maybe a dozen slabs to start out on something really amazing!

I didn't quite know what to create with the slabs so I began planing, sanding and sealing the wood to create beautiful slabs for all kinds of purposes. Now I had shelves, table tops, bar tops, bench tops and all kinds of other uses for people to use with their own "do it yourself" projects.

I haven't seen anything else on the web quite like it other than professional furniture builders that see either just the raw material or incredible over priced pieces and their trees are all cut down for that purpose instead of salvaged from a storm.

Today I am working with wood from hurricane Sandy that came through in the Fall of '12. I'm working with black walnut, poplar, sweet gum, pecan, persimmon, cherry, cedar, maple, beech and pine.

******** The Future of Bridgeton Art Gallery

I'm currently saving up money to start my own mill. As long as sells keep up I will start miling my own wood the Spring of '13 (only need $1500 more in sales to start processing my own trees!) I will continue to only process trees that fall due to natural means or are being removed due to urban development and headed to the mulch pile unless I divert them. I have several trees ready for processing including: black oak, red oak, sweet gum, cherry, dogwood, maple, pine, cedar, poplar and more. Once the mill is up and running I will be processing wood full time to support my new family and to bring you beautiful slabs that will stay in your family for a lifetime!
