For the pictures seen, these slabs were misted with water to bring out the grain of the lumber so you can see what the board will look like with a clear finish applied. I can't guarantee the bark will stay on the slab, there may be saw marks in the slab, there hasn't been any additional planing or drying done to this slab it's right off the saw. You can finish it any way you like, super smooth or you can leave some saw marks in it to make it a little more rustic.
