Our chain sawmill can cut up to 108 wide. All of our live edge slabs are properly air dried for 1 to 5 years, then we finish drying them in one of our 2 custom vacuum kilns. These custom computer controlled vacuum kilns produce very high quality drying of our slabs.
After the slabs are dried, we sand them flat and clean up both faces. Berkshire Products was started in 1987 by Alan Zablonski, a former woodworking teacher, and by his wife Joyce Vandemark.
With an inventory of over 10,000 live edge slabs, we are sure you can find that perfect slab for your next project. Our slabs are stored in 4 controlled buildings in vertical stacks for easy customer viewing if you are able to make the trip! Over the past nearly 30 years we have constantly modernized our equipment so we can produce the best possible kiln dried live edge slabs.
