The Lumber Shack produces some of the best Live Edge Furniture pieces in the states from trees found here in the rich, fertile landscape of Central Iowa. Our Black Walnut is known as the sought after "World Famous Select Iowa Black Walnut". Our Live Edge Slabs & Furniture are made from a combination of salvaged wood, locally harvested by our tree service crew, as well as select mature trees responsibly harvested from Central Iowa timbers & groves. If there is only one thing we can know, its how to find and cut beautiful wood for creating the most beautiful raw tabletop lumber slabs.
On certain lumber crotches or logs, our lumber slabs are kept together through the entire milling and drying process. By doing this we end up with a tabletop with the opportunity for you to choose colormatched as well as bookmatched slabs for your furniture building projects.

What are Bookmatched Flitches? How Do you Create BookMatched Flitches?
The shape of a log, the quality of the wood and the process in which the lumber is milled and dried will influence the design and appearance of a table. The Lumber Shack cuts high quality logs into thick flitches, or slabs which are then kiln dried in our dehumidification kiln. Bookmatched flitches or slabs, display the unique character of the tree in a mirror image as depicted in the right. A flitch is a cut through a log from bark to bark, giving it the natural edge, or live edge appearance. To bookmatch is to open two flitches or boards that were face to face in the tree, much like the pages in a book, and place them side by side. When a flich is thick, it is commonly called a slab. Bookmatches, also known as sequenced lumber, add beauty and dimension to furniture, as well as consistency.
