Rustic dining table what is it? A rustic dining table is found crafted using reclaimed barn wood; live edge wood slabs and can have an array of bases, from a simple old world wood base to a root base or a rustic modern metal base. At Littlebranch Farm, our artist designed and crafted rustic dining tables using ethically sourced live edge wood slabs. We seek out highly figured live edge wood slabs with knots, checks, cracks, burl, curl and other wood grain patterns and deformities. Claro walnut, redwood burl, maple burl, black walnut are some of the wood species we use. We choose to air dry our wood for many years. We can also kiln dry our wood slabs for those who desire, but we feel giving the time for air drying is worth the wait. We work closely with loggers and sawmills predominantly located in the Pacific northwest. By developing these relationships allows us the ability to produce the best rustic dining table for our clients.
Our rustic dining table designed and crafted using one of a kind live edge wood slabs is what we do! We source the majority of our wood slabs from dead standing trees or trees left on the forest floor, and all are native to the USA. We believe in environmental responsibility in managing our natural resources. Trees have a life cycle, why not let them live and see what they have produced in their life.
Sometimes a rustic dining table is referred to as a live edge dining table, wood slab dining table or tree slab dining table and the list goes on.
We often have clients ask what is a wood slab or live edge? A wood slab is a piece of wood cut usually 2″ or greater. A live edge wood slab is a tree or root system that is milled leaving the outside of the tree ( live edge) on two or more sides of the wood slab. The live edge does not mean bark edge. At Littlebranch Farm, we never suggest leaving the bark on any wood slab furniture.
we also craft a line of custom rustic chairs!
