Welcome to Byler’s Kiln Drying

Your Premier Source for Kiln Dried Live Edge Slabs!

Since 2005, Byler’s Kiln Drying in Middlefield, Ohio, has been a trusted supplier of top-quality kiln dried live edge slabs. Our extensive selection includes hundreds of slabs on display, with even more in the drying process.


Explore Unique Wood Species

Choose from Walnut, Maple, Elm, Hickory, Cherry, and occasionally specialty options like Butternut and Ash. Our slabs range from 3 to 16 feet in length, 8 to 48 inches in width, and 1 to 2 inches in thickness. We also offer round kiln dried live edge slabs.

A Streamlined Process

From tree to slab, we oversee the entire kiln drying process. The journey begins with our expert team cutting down the tree. The log is then milled into a slab, air dried for 6 to 9 months, and finally kiln dried for about a month. This meticulous process ensures the slab reaches the ideal moisture content, ready for display in our showroom.

Your Vision, Our Craftsmanship

Our kiln dried live edge slabs cater to designers, homeowners, hobbyists, carpenters, furniture makers, and builders. If you’re seeking a skilled craftsman to transform a live edge slab, we’re happy to provide recommendations.
