greetings all! I’ve stumbled my way here, hopefully by divine intervention.
I”m working on a remodel in the house and I very much want to do a live edge counter top in my living room. I bought a beautiful piece of live edge/bark-on Black Walnut (~8.5’ x ~21”-24” deep x 1.5”-2” thick) at an antique fair. I was sure it was perfect when I bought it (before I had really settled on what I was going to do) and I couldn’t pass it up for $100!Alas, based on what I’ve decided to do, the piece is too short. I really need it to be at least 9’ and I’d like it more like 11’. So, it looks like I’m going to have to pony up and buy another slab (which is fine because I’m going to cut this one and make a vanity top and backsplash in my bathroom…that’s another thread for later).
Right now, what I’m looking for is either someone that has stock, can mill stock, or can recommend someone that can to meet my dimensions and desires. What I need (approximates):
11’ x 24” deep minimum from squared back edge x counter top thickness (1.5”? 2”?)
Here is my Photoshop mockup:
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
