It's a "Live Edge" furniture which means the edge of each is completely unique. It's the actual edge line of the tree from which that board was cut. Natural gaps and voids (that do not affect the integrity of the top) are included and not worked around so you can see the actual life of the tree in your table top. We are committed to sustainable practices. All of our wood comes from local trees that have fallen or been damaged; they are kiln dried to create heirloom quality slabs of the finest quality hardwoods.We are the exclusive providers of live edge furniture.
