Thick Teak Slabs
Teak slabs are rare. True slabs, not planks glued together, are increasingly things of the past. Solid, live edge teak slabs are today almost non-existent. Nothing remotely like them exist in the USA. Sizes range from 2”- 6” thickness x 7’-18’ length x 30”-43” width. When you share your home or retail space with a solid wood slab, re-imagined as a table or bar, you are incorporating a tangible piece of bio-cultural history into your space. These solid teak slabs are reclaimed from different sources including recovered logs that sank in the two great rivers of Burma after being cut and hauled by elephant to the river’s edge between 50 and 200 years ago. They were also reclaimed from massive stilts that held structures above seasonal flood waters along those same rivers and from private collections in Rangoon where they were used as tables during and before British colonial times. We touch these magnificent slabs as little as possible in order to keep as much of the original history visible. The clefts at the bottom of many of these slabs shown below were carved by Burmese mahouts to enable ropes and chains to hold the original log as it was first hauled by elephant from the forest in the 19th century. Slabs come with or without legs.
