Our Story​

In 2016, Nathan Robbins opened Appalachian Slab Co. Woodworking + Hardwoods in Spartanburg, South Carolina. 
The fledgling Appalachian Slab Co. Woodworking + Hardwoods started as a "hobby-turned-business" with humble, home-grown roots.
A willing family member allowed for their spare garage bay to serve as the wood shop's first location. This singular garage bay quickly filled with hardwood lumber, live edge wood slabs, and woodworking equipment.
In 2022, after 6 years of growth, Appalachian Slab Co. Woodworking + Hardwoods outgrew it's original home and moved to it's current woodshop location at 770 Whitestone Road in Spartanburg, South Carolina. 
The company has since evolved into a family-owned and operated small business with three generations of Robbins family members still running the day-to-day operations.
The Robbins' family pastime of woodworking fuels their passion to
serve woodworkers, wood lovers, and other "wood-preneurs" in the upstate of South Carolina and beyond! Click this red-highlighted SERVICES button to see all of the shop services now offered! 
Appalachian Slab Co. Woodworking + Hardwoods gives wood the chance to become eternalized. Ourselves being sawyers and woodworkers, we seek to give trees a second life through woodworking.
Our location in the southern Appalachian region provides an abundance of native hardwood tree species, which provide woodworkers with a plethora of stunning options for lumber and wood slabs.
We have "planted our roots" in the woodworking industry and community, and we hope to serve you one day! Whether you need a unique wood slab, quality hardwood lumber, or perhaps a quote for a custom project, we're here to help! Come visit us!
