A lot of live edge pieces are cut from logs that would otherwise have been left to waste. When people find previously unwanted pieces of wood and turn them into art, this reduces the number of trees that need to be cut down to provide us with all the furniture you want. You can certainly feel better about your wood slab tables knowing that they didn’t help contribute to deforestation.
While some people simply choose to put up live edge slabs as art, live edge slabs have a variety of uses in the world of furniture, such as wood slab doors. You can use them as seating when crafted into benches or chairs.
The #1 use for slabs are in the home as dining room tables, counter tops, and mantles.
Additionally, Interior Decorators and Architectural Designers are using live edge slabs in Restaurants, Bars, Coffee Shops, Offices and Internet Businesses as coffee tables, bar tops and desks.
Since the wood has not been scraped into uniformity, each piece is unique, and this uniqueness grows as you start comparing different types of wood. You can see both the grains of your exotic wood furniture and the lines of the tree that gave birth to it. Many people believe nature is beautiful the way it is and does not need to be improved upon. If you are one of these people, then you too may want to consider this one-of-a-kind style with all its flaws and charms on display.
