More on Slab Tables

First, what IS a slab? Just to make sure we are all thinking alike.

A slab is a ONE piece, no man made seams, piece of wood. Thickness may vary but 1 1/2 inches to 4 and even thicker is doable.

A slab may be cut from a log or a flared stump and even a root ball.

Slabs may also be cut from the center of huge roots. Within the center of a root is what is called " burl ". Burl used to be sought after by Mercedez Benz for use on the dashes of their cars. Today, they don't do that. Burl is often sold by the square inch and is also used for highly prized gun stocks.
