Heidi’s Journey to the Perfect Table

At Lumber Furniture, we recently had the pleasure of working on a truly exceptional piece.

We came across a rare and unique Blackbutt slab. This slab, a remarkable 3.3 meters in length and in one seamless piece, immediately captured our attention. We posted it on our social media pages, and it wasn’t long before Heidi reached out to us.

A Perfect Match for Heidi’s New Home

Heidi was in the midst of building her dream home and wanted a timber slab dining table that would perfectly complement the tones of her interiors.

The rich, warm hues of the Blackbutt slab were an ideal match. She chose our premium high-end Monaco powder-coated metal table base, designed to support the slab that sits centralised and doesn't interfere with seating.

The angled edges of the slab and the central positioning of the Monaco base created a stunning visual balance.

The Craftsmanship Behind the Beauty

Crafting Heidi’s table was no easy feat. Matt, one of our skilled craftsmen, dedicated countless hours to perfecting the slab.

The process was meticulous – sanding, applying resin to fill the natural voids, and then sanding again. Each step required patience and precision. Matt described this slab as particularly challenging due to its many voids, but the end result was nothing short of spectacular.

The finished piece exuded a sense of elegance and natural beauty that we knew would make a stunning statement in Heidi’s home.

The WOW Factor

When the table was finally complete, the result was simply breathtaking. The unique character of the Blackbutt wood, combined with the sleek Monaco base, created a dining table that was truly one of a kind.

The table was delivered and we knew that this table would become a centrepiece in her new home.

Why Choose a Live Edge Dining Table?

Unique Beauty

Each Live Edge Dining Table is a unique work of art. The natural edges of the wood reveal the organic shape and character of the tree it came from, ensuring that no two tables are ever the same. This uniqueness adds a personal touch to your home decor.

Connection to Nature

A Live Edge Dining Table brings the beauty of nature indoors. The natural grain, knots, and imperfections in the wood tell a story of the tree’s life, creating a connection to the natural world that is both grounding and inspiring.


Timber slab dining tables are incredibly durable. The solid wood construction ensures that your table will stand the test of time, becoming a cherished heirloom that can be passed down through generations.


Whether your home’s decor is modern, rustic, or somewhere in between, a natural edge dining table can seamlessly fit into any style.

The timeless beauty of wood complements a wide range of design aesthetics, making it a versatile choice for any home.
