Popular Live Edge Tables & Epoxy Resin Natural Wood Tables

Looking for a live edge table and not sure which one is best for your particular needs? Here’s a selection of different types of popular live edge natural wood tables. Some with epoxy resin others with the natural gaps and cracks left open.

The best live edge tables in particular, and natural wood slab furniture in general, are those that are durable, robust, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.

If done well, the artisan, by incorporating the natural edge of the wood into the design of the piece, creates a work of art.

If you’ve looked into live edge wood furniture before you might know it can be quite expensive, most items on this list, however, are rather affordable, especially the smaller ones.

Some artisans are particularly environmentally conscious and opt to exclusively make use of wood slabs from fallen trees.

“Live edge wood tables bring natural charm, warmth, and nostalgia into your home. The organic forms, asymmetric shapes as well as the fact that each table is truly unique -as each wood slab is different- add to the appeal of this type of furniture.”

1. Natural edge coffee table with mid-century hairpin legs

These unique tables are crafted out of hand picked, reclaimed, 100% solid, cedar wood slabs from stumps.

Besides the obvious craftsmanship, this alluring little table is quite multi-functional. Use it as a stool or bench, a little side table, accent table, coffee table, nightstand, speaker stand or plant stand and instantly inject atmosphere into your interior.

Do note that, depending on your couch size, it might be a little bit too high for a coffee table. The standard coffee table height is approx. 16-18″. This table is 21″ high. If you have a higher couch this table would fit perfectly though.

Its natural lacquer ensures low maintenance, however keep in mind to apply sealer to keep the naturally relatively soft cedar wood’s color and shape protected. Read reviews on Amazon.

Note, even though it’s been treated with a clear coat finish you’ll need to treat the table with sealer regularly to keep its color and shape protected as cedar wood tends to bump or scratch easily.


7. Live-edge natural wood table

Woodworking as a practice, and hand-crafted natural wood tables as a result, are the manifestation of the symbiosis of man with nature.

This particular beauty of a table, with its two live-edges and two straight-cut edges is hand-crafted from acacia wood.

9. Designer handmade chopped wood epoxy resin coffee table

The luster of the walnut wood used in this straight-cut designer table in conjunction with the clear yet shattered epoxy resin prompts a pacifying feeling.

The resin is refilled multiple times to add a luminance and steer away from the traditional, glass-like, crystal clear resin look thus adding magnificence to the piece

It’s as if you were gazing into a conserved fossil or something frozen in ice, taking you back to primordial times.

The resin somewhat resembles PaleoBond, the adhesive used to encapsulate minerals, fossils, meteorites, petrified wood, jewelry and more.

Perhaps, fossil, meteorite, or mineral collectors could have certain collectables inserted in the resin of the table, thus creating the ultimate collectors table.

This, however, is purely the writer of this article letting his mind wander off so in order to find out if this belongs to the options get in touch with the manufacturer.

They are open to discuss type of wood, dimensions, colors and as they say themselves are ; “flexible enough to follow almost any type of specifications”.
