The Beauty and Craftsmanship of Live Edge Tables by Wise Owl Concepts


Live Edge Table with Epoxy Resin River

In the realm of bespoke furniture, few pieces make a statement quite like a live edge table. At Wise Owl Concepts, we specialize in crafting these stunning, one-of-a-kind tables that blend the raw, natural beauty of wood with the sleek, modern touch of epoxy. This blog post explores the artistry and process behind our live edge tables, showcasing why they are more than just furniture—they are timeless pieces of art.

The Allure of Live Edge Design

Live edge design celebrates the natural form of the tree, incorporating its unique contours, grain patterns, and imperfections into the final piece. Each slab is carefully selected for its character and beauty, ensuring that no two tables are alike. This design philosophy connects the piece to its natural origins, bringing an organic, earthy feel to any space.

At Wise Owl Concepts, our founder Zachary Pascarella, a craftsman with a deep passion for woodworking, takes this philosophy to heart. Zachary's approach to creating live edge tables is rooted in respect for the wood's inherent beauty and a desire to showcase its story in every piece.

The Process: From Slab to Table

The journey of a live edge table at Wise Owl Concepts begins with the selection of the perfect slab. We source our wood from sustainable forests around the world, looking for pieces that not only promise durability but also have unique features like interesting grain patterns, knots, and live edges that speak of the tree's life.

Once the right slab is chosen, it's carefully prepared, ensuring the live edge is highlighted while making the piece functional and beautiful. The natural edges are preserved, sometimes with the bark left intact or gently removed to expose the intricate details beneath.

Epoxy resin plays a crucial role in our live edge tables, not just as a protective coating but as a design element. We use epoxy to fill voids and fissures in the wood, which not only stabilizes the piece but also allows for creative expression through color and texture. The epoxy can be clear, to showcase the beauty beneath, or tinted, to add a pop of color and depth to the table.

Customization: Tailored to Your Space

One of the hallmarks of Wise Owl Concepts is our commitment to customization. Zachary works closely with clients to create a live edge table that perfectly fits their space and style. From choosing the slab to selecting the epoxy color and finish, every aspect of the table can be tailored.

Clients can also choose the base for their table, from simple steel legs for a minimalist look to more intricate designs that complement the table's natural aesthetics. This collaborative process ensures that each live edge table is not just a piece of furniture but a personal statement.

Versatility and Functionality

Live edge tables are incredibly versatile, fitting seamlessly into a variety of interior styles, from rustic to modern. They make stunning dining tables, creating a warm, inviting space for family and friends to gather. But their use doesn't stop there; live edge tables also serve beautifully as desks, coffee tables, or even art pieces, each adding a unique focal point to the room.

Despite their artistic appearance, our live edge tables are designed for durability and everyday use. The combination of high-quality wood and expert craftsmanship ensures that these tables can withstand the rigors of daily life, making them not just beautiful but functional.

Sustainability at Heart

Sustainability is a core value at Wise Owl Concepts. We ensure that our live edge tables are not only beautiful and unique but also environmentally responsible. By using sustainably sourced wood and eco-friendly epoxy resins, we strive to minimize our environmental impact while delivering products that clients can feel good about.

Conclusion

Live edge tables by Wise Owl Concepts are more than just furniture; they are a celebration of nature's beauty, an embodiment of craftsmanship, and a testament to sustainable design. Each table tells a story, from the forest where the wood was sourced to the careful hands that shaped it into a functional piece of art.
