One of the key differences between us and our competitors is the fact that our live edge slabs are already surfaced parallel. After looking at the slab on the left, you can see how difficult it would be to create a quality finished product. The drying process naturally warps slabs as they lose moisture in the kiln. At Janish Woodworks, we have a surfacing machine that can efficiently take this warp out and save you hours upon hours of sanding and/or hand planing that still might never yield a true plane. When shopping around for a slab, be sure to look into whether or not your desired slab comes surfaced.
*Note: These are not before and after pictures. This is simply a comparison of a raw slab and a surfaced slab.
