A live edge table is a perfect addition to any living space, and our handcrafted burl wood furniture can be custom designed to fit your home. The natural wood design of these beautiful solid wood tables makes them the perfect centerpiece for a cabin or woodland retreat. But the trend towards natural and organic furnishings isn’t just limited to rustic styles of decor. Live edge wood furniture comes in many styles, from natural and rustic to sleek and modern.
What is a Live Edge Table?
A live edge table incorporates the natural edge of the wood slab into the design of the table. We start with solid wood slabs when building our custom wood furniture. We remove the bark and sand the edges of the slab but keep the shape of the raw edge intact. This gives each table we build a unique shape and natural beauty. Using live edge wood slabs is also a more environmentally friendly option – when the raw edge is left intact, there is considerably less waste than when cutting to specific dimensions.
Live Edge Table Designs
We build handcrafted custom wood furniture in a variety of designs, from rustic to modern. These are just a few examples of the styles of live edge tables we can create.

In designing your custom live edge table, there are several things to consider. The first is the size of the table – we can create anything from a tiny end table to a full-sized conference table. Coffee tables are one of the most popular choices for live edge tables. The wood slab can be natural and irregularly shaped, or more squared off for a modern look. We can cut live edge slabs from burl wood, stump cross-sections, or vertical cuts from a log. The design of the base is another important design option to consider. We offer a wide variety of bases, from metal legs to rustic wood stumps. We also offer a modern style rustic table.
