LIVE EDGE FLOATING SHELVES

LIVE EDGE WOOD:
The natural edges, wavy grain lines, quilting, unique colors, knots and bark inclusions are the characteristics that define live edge wood. Each wood slab has specific feature and will vary from log to log milled. The pictures shown on this page is evident of the varying difference in grain patterns and characteristics of the wood. This is what makes live edge wood so distinctive and special.
MATERIAL:
Arizona grown desert hardwood is uniquely hand-crafted and custom designed from weathered-down trees found in the suburban metropolitan Phoenix area. By acquiring desert hardwood logs from tree services and individuals, allows me to create 100% sustainable, repurposed live edge wood designs. Both sides of the slab goes to a router sled table to obtain desired flat surface and thickness. As the wood slab ages, noticeable cracks on the wood may appear due to its natural dry cracking process and changes in humidity and temperature. Any voids or cracks from the wood are sealed with epoxy to maintain integrity of the wood.
FRACTAL DESIGN:
A process of applying 20,000 volts of electricity to the wood surface recreating a lightning strike in slow motion as well as unique abstract figures, tree and vein like shapes.
EPOXY:
Self-leveling high gloss U.V. resistant formula epoxy with choice of color pigment or clear is added to seal the burns created during fractal art process on the surface of the wood.
EPOXY COLOR:
Epoxy inlay with clear or color pigment is also use to seal the burns created during fractal art process on the surface of the wood.
Available color are as follows:
ARMY GREEN, BLACK, CARDINAL RED, CARIBBEAN BLUE, DOVE GRAY, EMERALD METALLIC, GOLDEN YELLOW, HAWAIIAN BLUE, KELLY GREEN
MAROON, NEON GREEN, ORANGE, PINK, PURPLE, RED, ROYAL BLUE, TEAL, TURQUOISE BLUE, VEGAS GOLD, WHITE
OIL FINISH:
Hand rubbed finish using Old Masters clear satin gel polyurethane to bring out the natural beauty of wooden surfaces.
USE AND CARE:
To revitalize the wood, apply Old Masters Carnauba Paste wax. Wipe off excess.
