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. Please contact garie@gccreativeworks.com for custom order and availability information.
