Live Edge Occasionals are cross-sawn from a whole tree trunk. The longest outside edges are still covered in bark, hence the name Live Edge. Freed from traditional plank construction, these Occasionals exhibit a richness of grain and color that bring joy to the heart of real wood enthusiasts. Using full wood slabs also creates less waste during the hand-crafting process making Live Edge Occasionals even more environmentally friendly than traditional wood Occasionals. The Live Edge Occasionals are made from 2" thick slabs of Walnut, Cherry, Oregon Myrtle and Padauk, an African wood with a fascinating reddish color.
A big part of their appeal lies in the totally unique look exhibited by every individual table. Since no two trees are exactly alike, no Occasionals made from full cross-cut slabs show the exact same grain pattern, color or shape. Each is totally unique and surprisingly harmonious with a wide range of design schemes. The live edge Occasionals really bring a new dimension to homes that embrace the warmth and authenticity of real wood furniture. Certainly they harmonize with other rough-cut wood furniture styles, but they also compliment many more formally-designed pieces. Their versatility really has to be seen to be appreciated.
