This is a live edge Slab table that my wife and I designed and handcrafed for the Collingwood Art Show!
It is made from a 150 year old maple tree that had to be cut as its branches were dropping and becoming a hazard to the town. We were able to make several tables from this tree including the bench as shown. It was a huge success and the table, bench and angel wing benchs sold within 1 hr. of the show. WOW! Great if you could do that everyday!
We thought we would share as we have since been making them and having a great time doing so!

Fantastic table and congrads on the quick sell, it’s not surprising with the quality that went into it.

Awesome table! That is a beautiful slab of wood. I’m not surprised it sold so quickly. She’s a beauty!

HI!
Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and the compliments!
We designed the legs but had a local welder put them together for us. Worked really well and we were happy to keep it local. I will post some pictures of the tables we are working on now with wood slab legs. Also cool and different impact. Thanks again guys!

Man I love live edge slab work. Great job with that and some serious drool effect besides. Awesome job.

Nice work, I envy the buyer. BTW how wide was the table?

Hi!
This tabe was 3’x7’ and the bench was 2’x7’. I’m going to add some photos of a table we just finished for Starbucks coffee in Toronto. Kinda neat cause they posted some pictures on the wall of the tree we picked and such. We always provide a photo library along with each piece so the buyer has detailed history of the tree and how it came back to life. Really Cool! Now I need one haha!

You have to love it when something sells that quick. Very nice work.

That is so cool. I wish we’d see more reclaim projects like this in communities. I’m sure it expands everyone’s awareness of possibilities and the value of our resources. Thanks and welcome….........
