Greetings! My name is Margie and I live near Bellingham, Washington. I was born and raised in Minnesota, but I've also lived in South Dakota and Texas.
In August of 2014, I visited my folks at their house in central Minnesota. Their house sits on wooded property, and there are always trees to chop down and brush to clear. While helping my dad knock down trees, I became fascinated with the grain of the wood. The oak, maple, birch, and other varieties are so beautiful that it was a shame to only use the wood for fire. I decided to take a few logs with me back to Texas and experiment.
I researched how to dry the wood (thank you, internet!), bought an orbital sander, and got to work. Coasters were the first things I made, and they started off simple. As I've learned how to woodburn and shade, the coasters have gotten more designs on them and my products have expanded.
In addition to coasters, I make ornaments, magnets, holiday items, and other varieties of decor. Future products include wine charms, baskets, and trays. I also sell the blank unfinished slices for other people to use and come up with their own projects or decorations.
If you have any questions, please contact me. You can also find me on facebook at www.facebook.com/logslicesbymargie/ . Thanks for reading!

While I make great efforts to provide consistency with these products, due to the unique nature of the wood there will be some variances. Knots, cracking, slight imperfections in woodburning/painting/staining, diameter, thickness, and materials are all subject to variations. Log Slices by Margie will make every effort to ensure you are satisfied with your order.
Log Slices by Margie offers wood from Minnesota, Texas, and Washington.
Each slice is dried in my oven to help delay (or possibly prevent) cracking or warping. This process is NOT foolproof, however, and items still may crack or warp in the future. It is suggested that you avoid extreme temperature changes and don’t store items (such as coasters) near your fire place. I learned this the hard way.
