Live Edge Tables and Waney Edge Tables

Live edge or waney edge tables are probably one of the most simplest forms of a table. It is literally a slice through a tree – with legs on it. These are some of the most stunning tables you can get as they show the complete tree in its purest entirety.

The more character a piece of wood has the more interesting the live edge will be. Sometimes we straighten this edge off with resin, ensuring the full character of the tree is kept. Alternatively if two slabs of wood are used it is possible to make a live edge river table

Obviously it’s not quite as simple as that as all the bark has to be removed from the slab of wood, the live edges have to be smoothed and the wood has to be flattened and sanded to a beautifully tactile finish. We also normally fill any splits, cracks and holes with resin – just to stop anything falling in them!

If you are after a very large live edge dining table or conference table – you have come to the right place. We have invested in equipment that allows us to flatten some of the widest planks of wood in the U.K. We can flatten up to 1.45m wide and any length. As long as a tree can be found that big!

Below are more photos of our live edge dining tables, coffee tables, kitchen islands, waterfall desk and even a live edge headboard – which is 2.6m long!
