Live Edge (natural edge wood) Some fun facts for you...

"As beautiful and unique as the trees produced from, live edge wood refers to the natural edge of the wood under the bark after it is cut. Live edge wood keeps the original lines of the trunk along its edges, portraying the wood in its very naturalistic and raw state. Live edge wood first became popular in the 1940s by George Nakashima and has grown to be used for nearly any piece of furniture or home touch, from tables, benches, headboards or shelving."

"Live edge or natural edge is a style of furniture where the furniture designer or craftsperson incorporates the natural edge of the wood into the design of the piece."
