Options for Live Edge Slabs

Our live edge wood dining and pub tables contain an assortment of woods including Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Wormy Maple, Sycamore, Hickory, Oak, and more.

In many cases, the bark has been carefully removed from each solid piece of hand-selected wood without disturbing the natural development of its edge. But for some live edge pieces, the bark is left intact. Every intricate grain pattern, wormhole, and knot are all unique features found in no other table, making it truly special. With some designs, you have the option of adding a “river” of colored epoxy. Each table’s top is finished in a clear coat of pre-catalyzed polyurethane to preserve the details against everyday wear and tear.

FAQs About Live Edge Table

What are live-edge tables?

A live edge slab table reveals the natural edges of the tree (sometimes including the bark) and wood grain patterns. Instead of plank wood that requires cutting the wood into straight-edged pieces, the slabs of wood for live edge tables are produced by cutting the tree longitudinally and retaining the natural bark-sided edges. The middle section of the tree would be the largest live edge piece.

What kind of wood is used in a live-edge table?

Harder wood is best for live-edge tables to prevent warping. We offer many tree species including Walnut, Oak, Spalted Maple, Sycamore, and more. All of our live edge furniture can be customized. You can read more about the hardness (Janka rating) and all the wood types we offer here.
