Saving Live Edge Slabs for Projects
« on: Yesterday at 08:49:14 PM »
We saved some Red Oak live edge slabs as narrow as 4 inches.
The walls, corner molding and and other applications turned out pretty nice
on this Outhouse. All the slabs were sawn 3/4 inch think.

This was a little challenging building since each slab fit a different way.
Having a band mill is speeds things up vs. using a skill saw.

I scorched the wood after completion and soaked it 3 times on 50/50 diesel and burnt motor oil.
Remember.....scorch it FIRST then spray with oil.  :)

They go from $1000 to $2500.
This one was $1800.
The floor will come out and it will be a well cover.

POSTON, 

That looks absolutely fantastic! You are hands down the master of the outhouse. You got me thinking I need to put a few of those together this spring.

Looks great.
If you sprayed it before torching it, it would change your definition of torching, and most likely would not sell well.
