The Beauty of Oak Wood Slabs | Rochester, NY | Woodsman Design Studio

There are so many wonderful wood species out there out of which to craft stunning wood slab tables. One of our favorites is oak. Some consider oak wood slabs older in style—more relevant to wood slab tables of twenty or thirty years ago. We could not disagree more. Our Rochester clients have actually requested numerous oak wood slab and live edge tables; below are a few of the reasons why…

Rochester Loves Oak Wood Slab Tables
So what about oak makes it so appealing to many…
  • The grain. Yes, oak wood slabs do tend to have more grain to them. The inherent movement in the wood lends itself to enhanced character. We think our oak wood slabs have a ton of interest and thereby make for great conversation pieces.

  • The color. The terrific thing about a wood slab table constructed of oak is that the color has a uniqueness to it that simply cannot be duplicated. Because of the grain, there is a variation in the color when the finish is applied. Also, oak slabs tend to be warmer in nature than some other wood slabs you’ll find around the Rochester, New York region.

  • The strength. Oak wood slab tables are among the most durable we craft. Oak is naturally strong and thus holds up to quite a lot. So for a kitchen island or dining table, you really cant go wrong using oak wood slabs.
