3 Easy Steps To Having Your Own Live Edge Table

Pick Your Wood

Our most popular species for live edge tables at the moment is Black Walnut. It has a dark rich colour with striking contrasting sap wood and is a timeless addition to any home. That said, we also have many other great choices of slabs like Ambrosia Maple, Black Cherry, White Pine, & White Oak. Our staff will be happy to go through your options and help guide you through the selection process.

*We are proud to say that 95% of our offerings are local and from Canada

Pick Your Finish

We usually don’t stain or change the colour on our live edge tables. Instead we prefer to use a clear finish that highlights the richness of the wood slabs you choose.

Most of our residential use tables are finished with either Rubio Monocoat or Osmo Oils. In our showroom we have a big display unit that clearly shows you the difference between the two, and a few colour/sheen options. If you expect heavy use or would rather have a finish with a higher gloss level we also offer a spray lacquer finish. This option is the same one we use for commercial restaurant applications and will come at a higher price point.

Pick Your Legs

We stock over 10 leg style options in raw steel and in black matte powder coated finish. These options have proven to be classic styles that match well with any live edge table our custom shop can produce.

In cases where you need something a little different, or had a specific design in mind - we can also provide you with custom metal work.


FAQs

How long does it take for you to make my table?

Most of the year our custom shop runs on about a 2-3 week turn around time. Once you finalize all sizes and details we can give you a pretty accurate ETA at that point. This is going to be fun!

Are your Live Edge slabs local?

We are proud to say than almost 100% of the tables we make are made using slabs from Ontario & Quebec. We do sometimes have slabs specifically from the Ottawa area but more often than not - they are from Southern Ontario. If you already have slabs and simply require someone to build you a table - we are happy to discuss that option with you as well. Usually we will ask you to bring in the slabs so we can properly asses how much work they will require before a proper estimate.

When do I pay - and how much?

All custom work that goes through our shop requires a 50% deposit up front to get the project scheduled in the queue. Once the table is completed we will contact you to make pickup/delivery arrangements and settle up the outstanding balance.

What about legs?

Of course we sell legs and encourage you to consider them when sorting through your options. We also have a welder who works for us and is usually able to make whatever we ask of him. His name is Rick! Send us some ideas and we will be happy to offer you a pricing option. If you already have table legs we can install them for you for a price. The cost varies depending on how complex they are, and whether or not we need to provide the fasteners. As we finalize the table details we can discuss the options and costs for this added service.

What are my options for a finish? I do/don’t like glossy things.

Most of our residential use tables are finished with either Rubio Monocoat or Osmo Oils. In our showroom we have a big display unit that clearly shows you the difference between the two, and a few colour/sheen options. If you expect heavy use or would rather have a finish with a higher gloss level we also offer a spray lacquer finish. This option is the same one we use for commercial restaurant applications and will come at a higher price point.
