Live edge (also known as natural edge) wood is created by retaining the raw edge of the tree and allowing the natural shape to show through. The contour of the edge can range from wavy and undulating curves to sharp spikes.
Chicago Fabrications enjoys using the natural edge often and feels it preserves the character of the original tree and is a physical reminder of the natural source of the product and the furniture’s deeper connection with nature. Because trees are a product of the natural world, each edge is completely unique. With only it’s log-mates sharing similar, but still not exact characteristics.
