A live-edge therapy session
The first thing you notice about milling lumber is it takes a lot of work to take something natural and make it straight and square. It also requires the most cylindrical, defect-free logs. When timber was cut and sawed by hand, every piece was used. Today, much is left in the burn pile as waste. Whole trees are often left to rot because they have little or no market value. Pioneers understood the value of live edge furniture.
Built for a lifetime
Live-edge furniture is captivating, with a rustic style that is crafted as if destined for some Viking lodge at Valhalla. Supported by stout limbs, hand peeled with the draw knife, these pieces – a table or bench, are built for a lifetime. Elegant enough for fine dining, and strong enough to dance on (if it came to that).
Reborn as three dimensional art
It starts with the slab – a gift from the island of misfit boards. Split on the mill, book matched as a table top, sanded and finished to high standards, these liberated objects become family heirlooms. Their charm is unmistakable. Each piece reveals the hidden sculpture of imperfection locked inside those twisted, knot ridden, and grainy logs. Mistakes in nature are suddenly reborn as three dimensional art.
