Faceted Maple Stump table
Faceted maple wood tables are made to measure. Shaped from solid, urban salvaged Western Maple blocks and given the Live Edge Design quality treatment with durable, clear finish that let’s the beauty of the wood grain shine through.
Each faceted maple stump is chain saw carved to create individual facets suited to the original shape of the tree. Each faceted stump is them kiln dried, sanded smooth and coated.
Our hands are involved in every step of the process.
Most importantly, we dry the wood to suit your home and it’s climate.
Our favourite wood to work with is Bigleaf western maple, our next favourite is walnut and our next is fir and our next is elm. We just love wood!
We strongly believe that correct kiln drying is the key to a table top that will last for generations.
Wood in its natural, solid form likes to move, warp and twist, if left to its own devices. We have developed a strict drying regime and a reinforcement system that will keep our table tops flat and functional for many, many years.
Proudly made in Canada
Kiln dried to perfection for your home’s humidity; meaning that it will stay flat and stunning.
Easy care, Commercial grade finish is durable and easy to care for just wipe with a damp cloth!
It is our hope and expectation that your Live Edge piece of furniture will last for generations.
Wood cut in large slabs incorporates all of the features of the wood; cracks, bark pockets, knots etc.
The whole idea is to present the tree as it grew; therefore, these features are not considered defects, but
rather are celebrated as organic, beautiful and interesting features of the wood.
Live Edge kiln dries all of our wood and designs stabilizers into the tabletops to allow for wood movement
while keeping the table flat. Despite our best efforts, the nature of wide slab solid wood is that it expands
and contracts in varying ways with changes in relative humidity that are beyond our control.
Term of warranty
This warranty is good for 12 months from date of purchase (final invoice). Please keep your original receipt of purchase, as it will be your proof of warranty.
What is covered
Defective materials and workmanship in Live Edge Design manufactured products when they are used and cared for as intended. Please see our “care instructions” below.
What is not covered
- Small natural movements of the wood:
-Wood warping of less than 0.6% of width (cross-grain) of the wood surface.
-Surface cracks less than 1.5mm (1/16”) wide
-Deflection of resin fills above or below the surrounding wood level by less than 1.5mm (1/16”)
- Electrical components and grommets which are subject to their own manufacturers’ warranties.
- Stumps, “funky chunks” or slabs thicker than 4”. Even though these are kiln dried, there are often traces of moisture left
deep in the wood. When this moisture eventually leaves, the wood shrinkage will cause further cracking in these cuts of
wood. Since cracks in this type of piece are expected they are not considered a defect.
- Damage caused by abuse or misuse.
- Any wood components used outside or subjected to abnormal humidity or prolonged exposure to moisture.
- Shipping damage, unless it is a packaging problem
- Work done by, or damage caused by, 3rd party installers.
Wood movement is most often associated with swings in humidity. Therefore, try to keep relative humidity in the area of your
Live Edge wood furniture between 35% and 50%.
Storage, transportation or use for more than 1 week in conditions out of this range will void this warranty.
