Reclaimed Wood Furniture From Vancouver island

“We salvage trees brought down by storms or left behind by forest companies. Our favourite is the Western Bigleaf Maple (acer macrophyllum), sought after by luthiers, wood turners and carvers for its exceptional colour and figure.

Tree growth takes place just beneath the bark. The rich contours of this  ‘live edge’ give a sculptural quality to our furniture.

On its journey to become your custom made furniture the tree is milled into massive slabs, innovatively dried, exquisitely designed, expertly crafted and finely finished all at our studio on Vancouver Island.” https://www.liveedge.com/
