Our inventory changes quickly so we recommend coming in often to find that perfect piece for your home or office.

Have fun exploring this exotic place for decorating ideas and taking in the sea of treasures from all over the globe. Bring your imagination and plan on spending some time as you meander aimlessly throughout our store.
Treasures from All Over the World
We personally travel the globe and pick cool and unique treasures to bring back to our Palm Harbor store for our loyal clients to cherish and enjoy. We import containers from India, Indonesia, Europe, Egypt, and Mexico to our store at least six times a year.
We custom fabricate one-of-a-kind solid wood live edge tables that will add warmth and a sense of timelessness to any room or home. Rare woods ranging from single element slabs to centuries-old reclaimed wood are found throughout our Florida warehouse.
Don’t know anything about live edge tables or exotic wood? Don’t worry -because our experienced staff guides you through the selection process every step of the way. After finding the perfect slab/lumber our skilled artisans will create your dream piece in our on-site custom woodworking shop.
A live edge table is made by first selecting quality environmentally friendly and sustainable logs. Second we custom saw the logs length-wise for “slabs” and vertically for “rounds”. The term live-edge refers to the free form nature of the tree - we do not square the edges for dimensional lumber. We keep the character of the tree in its natural form. Lastly we professionally kiln dry our lumber to 8% to ensure a lasting product that will not crack, split or warp. Quality you can trust. Nature does the hard part then our skilled team of carpenters run with the ball. With our 50” wide Woodmaster double drum sander we can machine flatten each slab for professional results.
Exotic Wood Slabs
We are a direct importer of exotic live edge wood slabs and always have a variety of reclaimed wood available as well. Barn siding, beams and reclaimed timbers for mantels are available and the inventory is always changing. You will be amazed! Come in and check out nature’s work’s of art….. Wholesalers take advantage of these slabs for your custom work - buy in bulk and save.
