Parotas Live Edge Slabs


Advantage Trim & Lumber Company has locations throughout the U.S. and says it now has more than 9,000 board feet of gigantic Parota live edge slabs in its kiln. The company notes that kiln drying “kills any hidden insects/larvae, hardens the wood cells, and stabilizes the wood”. The slabs measure from about 30 to 60 inches wide and they make amazing countertops, conference tables, dining tables, desks, etc. Woodworkers can call the Florida sawmill (941-388-9299) to get first pick.
