Live Edge Custom Furniture

Live Edge wood – also known as Raw Edge, Natural Edge, or Reclaimed Wood – preserves the original shape of the tree – leaving the natural or “live” edge sides in the final piece. The Live Edge style shows off the natural character of the wood, and we are experts in both traditional and modern ways of preserving the small splits, voids, knots and natural variations. We use our knowledge and experience to treat each piece of Live Edge wood differently, keeping as much of the character and bringing out the unique grain of each piece. For example, larger cracks or voids in the wood can be repaired with inlays and “bowties” rather than being removed or hidden. This allows for the stunning natural patterns and colors within the wood grain to be revealed. At Long White Beard we work with live edge wood every day. We make everything from serving trays to shelves, from small accent tables to giant conference tables. We also offer slab finishing services on request.

Put Our Experience To Work For You

The Live Edge designs we create in our shop are customer favorites, and the character and natural features of live edge wood lend themselves incredibly well to custom work. Our in-house wood shop and metal shop can handle any size custom project made from live edge wood. We’ve been working with live edge since we started in 2014 and since then we’ve created dozens of custom live edge wood pieces. We’ve made live edge dining tables with matching live edge benches, live edge kitchen islands, bars, live edge bar tops and live edge countertops. We design and build live edge coffee tables of all sizes, live edge desks, live edge headboards, beds, nightstands and side tables. We also make live edge wood bathroom vanities and storage shelves, live edge bookcases, floating shelves, and storage chests, live edge consoles, accent tables, end tables, and bar carts. We have provided stunning, one-of-a-kind conference tables for our commercial clients. We also create beautiful handmade serving trays and other home goods from our selection of live edge wood slabs.

Ordering Custom Live Edge Furniture

At Long White Beard Furniture, we make our Live Edge furniture using locally-sourced Michigan hardwoods, many of them Reclaimed Wood from trees that were saved from being destroyed or put in a landfill. We hand-finish all of our live edge furniture to bring out the stunning grain pattern and natural beauty in the wood.
