A Little About Us | The Lumber Shack

The Lumber Shack, our family owned company, has been in business for over 20 years! During this time, we have experienced a lot of growth and established ourselves as one of the top online suppliers of Live Edge slabs. Based out of Iowa, we ship high quality live edge slabs all across the nation and our team of qualified experts is committed to satisfying customer expectations and creating positive experiences.

At The Lumber Shack we cater to a large group of woodworkers, from individuals working on special projects to commercial companies with bulk orders. Our extensive selection of live edge wood and lumber includes cuts from over a dozen wood species, such as Hackberry, Oak, Spalted Maple, Ash, and Black Walnut, providing thousands of options for our customers to choose from. Our high quality, locally sourced slabs are kiln dried to 6-8% moisture content and heat sterilized to ensure they are ready for any project!

We only use locally harvested wood from our surrounding areas as the environment is a top priority to us. We follow best practices such as using salvaged wood, taking part in urban renewal projects in the area, and other sustainable timber management practices. We take pride in our ability to honor the environment while also providing affordable, kiln dried slabs that will hold the test of time.

When you’re shopping for unique custom Live Edge slabs online, it can be hard to trust that what you see is what you will get. We work tirelessly to ensure that the information provided on each item in our inventory portray the same board you will receive. Each of our products are photographed to exhibit even the smallest details and the slabs are sprayed with a Mineral Spirit solution to show the color and character as it will show once finished. Additionally, we provide accurate and comprehensive descriptions of every product we offer. This information will cover characteristics such as cracks, inclusions, voids, and any tapering or warping the board may have.


The Lumber Shack not only sells a massive inventory of unique Live Edge slabs, but we also offer a variety of finishing services so that your piece is prepared however you’d like to receive it. These options are listed directly on the products pages, including pricing, to allow you to choose the finishing level that will work best for you and your project.
