What exactly is live edge wood?
Furniture built from live edge hardwood slabs has become increasingly popular over the past several years. This does not come as a surprise – live edge wood is a beautiful way to keep the integrity and natural look of the timber for whatever project it is being used for. Not only is it stunning, but it is also incredibly durable – holding up well for years to come with regular usage. Many people use live edge wood for various projects – dining room tables, coffee tables, shelving, office desks, etc. Natural edge wood slabs have that comforting rustic feel that can bring character to any room.
One of the most incredible things about live edge wood is the natural shape of the live edge slabs. As you can see from the photos on this website – the wooden boards are not always symmetric the entire way around the board being used, such as a traditional dining room table your mom found at an antique store. Live edge is practically a translation to “natural edge,” – which means it showcases characteristics of the tree it was cut from – knobs and all.
