After any of you slab large pieces like this and dry them how you do display them? I see where Scott gets some of his standing up in his "show room" (I'm guess that what you might call it) but they are very heavy to handle and take up lots of space. I have slots along walls and racks to hold slabs up to 9ft and under up to maybe 30" and they get pretty heavy also.

We sell slabs and build furniture or we take a slab to a stage where someone with limited tooling can finish
