Deadwood refers to sticks and branches that are sanded down, resulting in a rich, smooth finish.
Because it has been exposed to the elements for a time, deadwood has a wide spectrum of colors not present in wood that is cut and processed immediately. When the top layer of deadwood is sanded down, rich reds, purples, oranges, and greens emerge.
Fine sanding the wood and adding a penetrating oil finish deepens and enriches its natural highlights. Each stick in a frame is truly a unique work of art on its own.
Live Edge gets its name from the bark that remains on the sticks and branches framing this collection. We only gather wood that is already cut, rescuing most of our Live Edge sticks from burn piles and yard clippings.
We dry it in our kiln to ensure that the moisture is completely evaporated and the wood is ready for building.
The bark gives the finished work a raw, earthy feel that enhances its classic rustic appeal. It would look as at home in the forest as it would in your living space.
Okay, we know you giggled a little. But seriously, this sexy collection is framed with wood that was reclaimed from building interiors, typically 2x4 studs that once formed walls. It is very common for these materials to be burned following a remodeling project. Our furniture gives this wood new life.
The milled nature of the wood creates a regular, geometric shape that feels as modern as it does rustic. The finished work has a beautiful patina that is remarkable considering its humble origins.
