Live Edge Walnut Slabs!

Looking for the perfect live edge table?  Our process begins with air dried and kiln dried slabs that were locally sourced and salvaged from urban development projects.  These trees soaked up the California sun and all of the hearty minerals growing in the Northern California soil, resulting in a stunning array of colors along with the more traditional brown and black hues.  Many of these trees were planted on the perimeter of Sacramento, central valley, and San Francisco Bay Area farms and grew to a tremendous size with the help of farm water runoff.  Road widening projects, housing developments, and natural disease are some of the reasons that we get to work with such exceptional wood, and we are happy to share it with all of our customers!

Stay posted as we continue to post about our lengthy and detailed process that results in one of a kind live edge pieces of furniture.
