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.

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 his wife Joyce Vandemark.
