A front door that is constructed of beautiful, natural wood slabs gives your entryway a welcoming feeling that invites people in. The doors throughout your home can also be outfitted with natural wood doors to create a rustic or old-world style in your home.

You can also use slabs or planks of wood to make your own signs and picture frames. You can use paint, vinyl, or even a wood-burning tool to add a meaningful saying onto a slab of wood, then hang it in your home for a lovely custom decoration. Or, with a few careful cuts and nails, you can create a large, natural wood frame for a family photo or piece of art. A few touches of natural wood throughout your home can go beautifully with any decorating style.


If you want to add some beautiful floating shelves to a room, a few wood planks and the right hardware are a simple way to do so. Just attach a few brackets to the bottom of a wooden live edge slab, then attach the brackets to the wall. You'll have a beautiful custom shelf that exactly fits your needs.

There are many ways to use wood slabs in your home if you just use a little creativity.
