This Live Edge Walnut table is our ode to the beautiful Black Walnut tree that it came from, which was felled from a storm in Wisconsin (The Badger State). Black Walnut trees are known for their excellent walnut harvest, and more importantly the sturdiness and quality of their wood. We like our trees felled due to natural causes because it means we don’t have to bring down new trees, and since we pride ourselves on using as much reclaimed material as possible, our reclaimed wood furniture—coming to us by barn and by bowling alley—is always a triumph. The organic, undulating edge of the new table, known as a live edge, means every single piece that emerges from this tree is one of a kind. The edge was not sanded to man-made perfection, nor molded to modernist clean lines, instead allowing for the texture, vintage and life of this majestic tree to be center stage in its next life. Our process was mostly cutting down and varnishing the raw materials we were given to our specifications, preserving the uniqueness of the Black Walnut slab for this eye-catching dining or conference table. The cold rolled steel base was custom made by a local metalworker. Dimensions: 9’-6” long x 3’-6 (narrow side) to 5’-3” (wide side) x 30” tall Weight: 550 lbs. Each table is made to order so wood species, leg design and dimensions may be customized.
