Live Edge and Burl Furniture
I love creating with rare and unusual materials. Our luxury furnishings are often made with rare burl in exceptional sizes then inlaid with stone or even gold. As always, I can incorporate your ideas into Sculpture or Furniture to create the perfect addition to your home or business.
Some of the interesting woods we use: Old Growth Redwood, Giant Sequoia, occasionally Ash Juniper, Spalted Pecan, Spalted Elm, Cypress, Mesquite, Oak Burl, Desert Ironwood and more
I've been creating tables from live edge slabs for over 20 years. I enjoy the challenge of working with large natural "live edge" slabs and have created tables from a single log slab cut "through and through" with lengths exceeding 20 feet...I love the history and beauty of the wood. When I have a huge slab of wood that dates back 1,000 to 2,000 years it would seem a crime to "cut it up" for lumber or small pieces so I have a tendency to "max out" the slabs I have available and enjoy showcasing them in the large area of a table top. We always use solid wood slabs, no veneers.
A word on pricing: I'm happy to provide you with a "ball park" quote, but prices can vary considerably depending on the design as well the value of the materials invoilved. The prices below are a low to high range from a Redwood dining table featuring a straighter grain slab on one end of the scale, to an extraordinary Burled and /or and Inlaid table for up to 20! Just let me know what fits your needs.
Prices for dining tables will range from approximately $3,000 for smaller simpler tables, to $100,000 for some of my huge "through and through" cut, solid slab, Inlaid and Burled tables.
