Live Slab width and depth dimension sizing advice
October 21, 2013
What would be a good depth from the wall and thickness size to seek in a live slab for a powder room 44" wide? Also do you recommend faucet holes in the slab, as pictured here? Is there any problem with wall mounted faucets through the poplar bark? In our case a mirror will be hung on it as well.
Thank you.

This slab is approx. 42" wide x 24" deep, 2" in thickness. Live edge slabs of course vary in shape but these dimensions worked well in proportion to this small half bath. There is no problem using a wall mounted faucet in conjunction with a bark panel or in mounting mirrors or light fixtures. Sounds like you have a fun project in the works, good luck!

Thanks! And for your continued responsiveness to questions!

What faucet was used with this Native Trails Mandala sink? The fit looks tight yet provides the needed faucet height to scale the upper vessel sink lip. Is there a recommended distance for faucet and sink installation when both sit on the slab? Or, if wall-mounted, a recommended height above the vessel sink lip or drain?

What type of wood is this slab? With what is it treated to keep it water resistant?

Is this slab mounted approximately 32" from the floor at its top side?

What price range should one expect when considering a slab of this size?

I believe this was a Danze faucet, though I'm not sure they still offer the style. The spout sits about 8" high, so I think 8-10" from counter top to spout allows clearance for easy of use without enough force to splash.

This is a Maple slab finished with satin polyurethane and mounted at 34". I would expect to pay around $300 for a slab of this size and species.
