Trees and Tables

Live Edge Slabs Available for Tables

Let’s start the conversation here. We can talk about the base after…

Live edge walnut bookmatch with some amazing figure and color. Some cracks and voids need to be addressed with epoxy or wood patch work. This set is about 99” long x 68” wide and 2.5” thick (We can trim these down to make a top that is functional south of 4’ wide).

A live edge black walnut set from Easthampton MA. This set will finish at about 9’ long x 40” wide. These will be headed for surfacing soon. They are very clean and free of defects.

Single slab butternut that is 8’ long x 36” wide. This piece was finished to show the color and figure but can still be trimmed down to size to fit your space.

9’ Long x 44” wide this is going to make a good looking match. Sugar Maple is a beautiful wood to works with. This particular set has a strong white sapline that runs along the outer edge. This was caused by a void on the top of the tree that water had been trickling into over the years.

Live Edge Walnut Conference Table

Bring a little nature into your work for more balance. This particular piece was made from 1 single tree. It consists of (4) 10’ sequentially sawn live edge walnut slabs. The idea behind this end for end bookmatch was to allow the ends to grain match so they looked seamless when put together. The build on this table was complicated and challenging. But, thats what a conference room is for right? Overcoming obstacles and finding a way to make something incredible!

Custom barn in Westport, MA

We built some unique furniture and custom kitchen for this one of a kind Barn

Location : Westport, MA

Date: Winter of 2018

Last year we had the opportunity to work on conceptualizing this project with our client. They wanted a summer retreat that felt like it was built with the original barn. We kept that in mind while designing the furniture for this custom barn.

The scope of work:

  • Two live edge queen sized cherry beds with full trundles stored underneath

  • Custom cherry kitchen with beaded doors and drawers

  • 36” High cherry kitchen table with reclaimed base made from a beam of the barn

  • 4 round cherry counter height round stools with 3 legs

  • Built in cherry refrigerator cabinet

  • Custom cherry shuffleboard table with cast iron base

The Wood:

While we were designing this barn on site with the client we were taking in the surroundings. Studying the beams, floor board, paneling etc… We wanted to take a mental image of all other materials in play. We then paired this space with the correct lot of trees that we could or have milled to match our ideal finished look. We decided to use this cherry that we milled from Russell MA. It has some insect damage which we could fill with epoxy. We think this tied into the reclaimed feeling of the barn while still feeling luxe but not out of place. This is why our sawmill and kiln are so important to our design when it comes to customizing your space. It takes the blinders off, and allows us to truly design with your space in mind.

The Design-Build Process:

Once we identify the wood we are going to use, we begin the real work. This involves designing, cutting, shaping, sanding, more sanding, and finally finish/install. Each piece is really up to the artists eye, and we have very long conversations about what board should go where when it comes to a build. By doing this we are ensuring each board belongs where its placed. These trees take a very long time to grow and its important to take our time with them. Our end goal is a cohesive look that captures the clients vision.

Living with our furniture in your space:

The idea that everything has been carefully sourced and worked into your space is as special as it sounds. We like to believe that our furniture is more of a feeling than it is something pretty to look at. Something that inspires you to be creative or think about things in a different way. Every day you wake up and are in the presence of beautiful furniture and woodwork is a good day!

Why you should come out

Have you ever experienced furniture being made? Creating beautiful heirloom tables and furniture from one solid tree is something everyone should see for themselves. It will change the way you see furniture forever. 

What to expect on arrival? 

At the time of me writing this post, we still have no sign on the building. That said, if you use Google Maps it will bring you directly to us and I put a photo of main entrance on Google. Now lets get down to the nitty gritty details:)

A large selection of lumber is always our first priority. After we mill the trees at our sawmill and dry them to 5-10% moisture, they come to "chill" in our showroom. You can pick out the slab/boards that you like with me right there saying "This tree came from a guy named mike, he was a good guy and we took the tree because he wanted to plant a garden". The stories are free. If you want to peruse by yourself thats cool, Ill stay busy until you're ready to talk. Saturdays can be crazy, so if you want my undivided attention I recommend making an appointment. Music is a must for the woodshop (I like Mumford and sons and Bon Iver) so thats whats normally playing. 

What kind of furniture do we make/sell? 

The good kind. Heres a quick list of tables we make and have for sale on a regular basis:

  • Traditional Farm Tables with 4 legs, aprons and breadboard ends
  • Slab Table with/without live edge (Single Board, No glueup, Tree Slice)
  • Live edge Book matched table tops and cast iron bases
  • Wood Slab Queen and King sized beds
  • Modern Windsor Chairs by O&G
  • Benches and stools 

Delivery?

We do have some things that are grab and go but for the most part its small batch production WIP (works in progress). Lead time is 4-6 weeks which is down from 8-10 Weeks, woot woot!!! We off white glove service that can be purchased. Shop pickup is free. 

Things to do when you visit? 

Let me know if you find anything?!?! If you're like me, the only thing on your mind is "where can I eat"? Here are my recommendations:

Breakfast: Pan'e Dolcetti - Really bomb tomato Mozzarella sandwich on homemade focaccia bread and coffee to boot. 

Lunch/Dinner: Pinnochios Three Rivers - Literally right over the bridge from the warehouse. Great Italian food. A little carboload for the ride home (Someones falling asleep for sure). 

We are 15 minutes away from Brimfield Antique Flea Market, so definitely plan on swinging by before or after you head out to that flea market jazz.

Live edge slab tables with cast iron bases

_DSC2523.jpg

The Process

We are now offering book-matched slab tables and cast iron bases. You choose the material, the base, and the size. Our pricing is $200-250/sqft and that includes the bases. Give us 6-8 weeks and we will have a table that is uniquely yours. 

Wood Selections

Single slab of Black Walnut

Single Slab

We utilize uniform slabs so the shape of the table is consistent throughout. Generally 40% Markup depending on material.

Bookmatched Walnut Table

Bookmatched Live Edge

You can do any of our tables with or without the live edge. We always remove the bark. With book matched tops, we are able to achieve wider widths like 40-46" wide with just 2 boards. These are sawn in sequence from the same tree so the grain and color matches.

Bowties and company boards

Bowties, fills, and add ons

We only put bowties where they need to be. These are structural and are crucial in maintaining the integrity of the slabs. We always epoxy voids in the tables so nothing finds its way in and can't get out.

Company Boards - We offer custom table extensions for when you have those family get togethers and need a little more space. These are stored in a closet when not being used, and put in when the Turkeys ready!

Cast Iron Bases 

We have partnered up with Ares Iron based in Providence RI to offer you one of a kind pieces. 

We will continue to update our inventory with Slab table tops that are available to pair with these bases. To see more please visit the "Shop" tab on our website. Also, if you have a specific request please feel free to contact us
