Live Edge Walnut with Extensions (Company Boards)

A beautiful 8’ heirloom table made from bookmatched claro walnut. The figure in this table made for an extremely nice and tedious build. Taking our time every step of the way and examining from every angle. Using touch to feel any inconsistencies within the wood. Planing and sanding until we achieved the smoothest finish possible. With the extensions this piece finishes at 10’ long x 48-50” wide.

This bookmatch features 2 live edge claro walnut slabs from the same tree. We used black resin to fill voids on the top and bottom. Claro walnut bow-ties were used to strengthen and reinforce cracks within each slab. There are 6 on the bottom and 4 on the top. Here is a quick video showcasing the method we use for inlaying our bow-ties:

Company boards were custom made for this table from claro walnut as well. We fabricated the custom connections for these in house. They are sleek and minimal. They give the live edge table a little extra seating during the holidays without taking away from the design. The metal also goes great with the black omega cast iron by Ares Iron.

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!
