Live Edge Dining Table: A Masterpiece of Nature and Craftsmanship

Crafting the Perfect Timber Dining Table: A Story of Passion and Expertise

Building a live edge dining table is more than just creating furniture. It’s an experience that connects you with the raw beauty of nature.

At Lumber Furniture, we transform timber slabs into stunning dining tables that become the heart of your home.

This is the story of how we crafted a magnificent Blackbutt live edge dining table for our client Nadine, and the meticulous process involved.

The Journey Begins: Understanding the Vision

When Nadine approached us, she had a clear vision. She wanted a large, impressive dining table. The brief was specific: a Blackbutt timber slab dining table, measuring 1.6m wide and 3.6m long.

Finding a tree that wide is rare, especially in Blackbutt. But we love a challenge.

Sourcing the Perfect Timber. Finding the Ideal Slab

Matt, our dedicated craftsman, set out to find the perfect timber slab. He explored various sources, determined to find a slab that would meet Nadine’s specifications.

The option was to join two slabs seamlessly, creating a flawless, large surface.

Crafting with Precision. The Art of Flattening and Joining

Creating a live edge timber slab dining table is an art form. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of our process:

1. Selection:  Choose the perfect timber slab, ensuring it meets size and quality requirements.
2. Flattening: Use a planer and sander to flatten the slab, creating a smooth surface.
3. Joining: Seamlessly join two slabs if necessary, using specialised techniques for an invisible join.
4. Resin Filling: Fill any cracks or imperfections with resin, enhancing the natural beauty of the wood.
5. Sanding: Sand the surface to a fine finish, preparing it for sealing.
6. Sealing: Apply a high-quality finish to protect the wood and enhance its natural grains.

Bringing the Vision to Life

Matt worked tirelessly on Nadine’s table. Each step was executed with precision and care, ensuring the table would not only meet but exceed expectations. The result was a stunning Blackbutt live edge dining table, a true masterpiece.
