Our rustic style custom furniture maker produces a natural wood table built from ethically sourced live edge wood slabs and burl wood. Special care is taken to bring out the natural beauty found in the wood slabs. Although we design and build rustic style natural wood tables that are artistic yet functional furniture. It is not your grandparent’s rustic table it is refined and elegant. Our custom furniture makers take special care to preserve the natural edge also known as the live edge. We are often asked what is live edge? Simply it is the outside of a tree without the bark. When the log, root or burl is milled the outside of the tree is left attached ( not cut off). This is referred to as live edge wood or a wood slab.

A natural wood table is also built without the live edge. They can have a solid wood slab or be built by gluing wood planks together thus creating a farm table. Personal taste will dictate the style whether a solid wood slab or glued up wood planks. Although price can be a factor as a solid wood slab farm table can be more expensive. Traditionally farm tables are long and narrow and normally built from wide planks. A farm-style natural wood table is either ultra rustic or elegant rustic depending on the home decor. We proffer to build using that is milled to 3″ thick thus yielding a wood table top that is 2.5″ to 2.75″ thick. Also, a rustic farm table can be built from reclaimed barn wood.

Live edge wood can also be used in other natural wood tables styles such as a coffee table, accent table, and others. Our custom furniture designer uses natural wood to build our style natural wood coffee tables and rustic tables. By incorporating live edge wood slabs, driftwood, logs, antlers, and forged steel we are able to handcraft custom furniture that is artistic but functional.
