This custom coffee table is made of a single slice of maple tree, with the live-edge (the bark of the tree) left intact.
Our approach emphasizes the natural qualities of the wood, showcasing the knots and irregularities that make each tree (and each table) unique.
We used the same Natural finish we use on our countertops. It is very durable, easily maintained, and imparts no artificial color to the wood, allowing its natural beauty to shine through.
The base is custom welded iron angle and rod, painted black so as not to distract from the wood, and fitted with four non-marring leveling feet for stability and protection of the floor beneath. Check out more pics from the building process below!
