Live Edge Tables: Unique Look, Lasting Value

Each solid wood table produced by 1BENMU in Scarborough is one-of-the-kind and it can never be exactly replicated. 

The beauty of our solid wood tables lies in the details and imperfections of the wood. Our experiences Furniture makers in Toronto will use these natural markings, such as the knots and grains to create the perfect live edge table just for you. 

1BENMU- Furniture & Design Studio is dedicated to crafting the best high-end table for your home and we will customize the pieces to the specifications you provide. By looking at the custom table top you will be able to tell the age of the wood. 

We can also design the right solid wood dining chairsto complete your dining room table and chair set that fits both your lifestyle and budget. 

Rui ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – We ordered the black walnut live edge table from 1BENMU. Their expertise in solid hardwood and professional design has impressed us a lot. 

The process is easy:

  1. Book an appointment with one of our furniture specialists and visit our store.
  2. Choose the size and slab that will be used to make your customized table. 

The custom dining table production process starts in Toronto with an appointment with our Furniture Designer.

During the free consultation session, we will have the chance to discuss and take into consideration all the factors, such as the design, size, and materials.

The first thing to do when designing your handmade table is to decide on what size and shape you’d like.

It is still important to understand exactly what works best in your living space. In that case, you should measure the space of your room.

Whether you need a round-shaped coffee table by using the rings of the tree or long rectangular shaped handmade dining table, we can make it happen.

Our furniture professionals in Scarborough have extensive experience in creating custom dining tables and epoxy river coffee tables. However, it’s always a good idea to do the research yourself and get an understanding of what you’re looking for.

It is also really helpful if you have an image that we can analyze and build a design that will fit your needs and requirements.

Whether you are looking to order something relatively small, such as a natural edge serving tray or a dining wood seat, take your time and see as many ideas as you can.  

The high-quality Live Edge Table Top not only lasts for a long time but also gives your home its own unique look. There are many advantages of having a Custom Dining Table made of solid wood, such as uniqueness, durability, high quality etc.

  • Durable and will be made of hardwood and will maintain that strength for decades. Unlike the ones made of particle board or MDF, our custom table tops & walnut dining tables will last through the years. According to the internationally acclaimed woodworker, architect and leader of the American craft movement George Nakashima, furniture should mean to be lived with as a member of the family. 
  • The natural beauty of the wood is timeless and you can never go wrong with a live edge table.

    The imperfections of the wooden slabs show the beauty of wood and make the live edge furniture unique. 1BENMU will use the natural holes and cracks in the wood in order to create a one-of-the-kind table just for you.

  • Resistant to wear and tear. The slab we use won’t sag over time the way cheaper woods like plywood, particleboard, and fiberboard will.

  • Build just for you. You can order the exact shape and size and get exactly what you want for your home.
  • Only the finest quality craftsmanship and construction techniques. When you buy a ready-made piece, you can never get the quality as good as in solid wood tables.

Although all our live edge tables look like they have been encased in glass, you should always use coasters for hot food or drinks to prevent any damages.

Each custom table top has the actual natural shape of the tree, which means that the surface will be uneven. This unusual surface can be a challenge to clean and maintain.

To clean your natural edge table, you can use a microfiber cloth soaked in soap water or detergent to wipe the surface of the table. You can also use natural cleaning products, such as vinegar, which is naturally antibacterial and will remove the residuals of the irregular surface.

Microfiber cloths have a super-soft, absorbent surface that allows them to clean the table top without scratching it. Once cleaned, wipe with a dry cloth to remove any moisture left. If you spill something on the surface, you should wipe it up immediately.

Don’t forget to dry dust your live edge table top on a regular basis to help keep it clean.

In order to prevent damages, the ideal humidity levels in your home must be around 45%-55%. A sudden change in temperature or humidity can cause tension inside the wood.

We recommend avoiding any direct contact with the sun, and of course, it should not be too close to a fireplace, as it will dry it out.

Finally, if your table has scratches on the surface and you just want to get rid of them, you can check our furniture restoration services.

Live Edge Tables

Live Edge Table is made of solid wood and leaves at least one side of the table natural. It is considered more environmentally friendly than normal wooden tables because more of the wood is being used.

Although the live edge table style has become increasingly popular in the furniture industry, it has a style of its own that goes beyond any trend.

By having a custom table you can bring a sense of uniqueness, balance and make your living room even more visually appealing. 

Our custom dining tables and river coffee tables are exclusive and one-of-a-kind, as there are no same pieces of wood. Natural edge is a style of tables in which we will display the natural edges along with curves, knots, holes, and deformities of the wood as the main attraction. 

You can apply the natural edge style to boardroom tables, dining and coffee tables and even console tables. The table can also be large or small and with various kinds and shades of stain. 

Alice ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Carter and Henry are very professional and very wonderful to work with. This artistic coffee table is incredibly beautiful! We definitely will work more in future time.

Epoxy River Table

1BENMU specializes in creating astonishing epoxy river tables in Toronto.

Epoxy river Tables is a growing trend all over the world.  These tables are very modern and a real eye-catcher.

Above all, the River Tables create a very appealing contrast through the combination of solid wood and epoxy resin. This style appeals to wood furniture lovers and also to people who prefer a modern style.

We will keep the unique natural edge of the wood to create a perfectly smooth, flat table surface.  It is possible to retain the appearance of a channel that looks like a river by filling the gap between the planks with epoxy resin

With live-edge tables, the natural edge of the wood is faced to the outside of the table. When it comes to a river table, the natural edge is inward, giving the look of a flowing river.

To fill the gap, we usually use epoxy resin or we can cover it with a glass top. You can also choose to add a waterfall effect to your epoxy river coffee table.

For more table types and styles you can also check Home Stratosphere.

The price of custom wood tables will be different depending on the top, the style, the kind of wood, the legs and the amount of epoxy and materials we will use.

Each slab is sourced from a single tree and usually, it is not easy to find the exact size or the exact species. This is one of the main reasons why it is impossible to mass-produce live-edge tables and why there is no fixed price. 

The second factor is the time and energy put into the live edge table. The natural edge tables will be custom made to your specifications and wishes. Depending on the requirements you have, it can be a bit pricier.

The whole process of production is done by hand in our studio located in Scarborough.

Generally speaking, at 1BENMU the price of a natural edge river coffee table goes from $500.00 to $1,500.00. The starting price for a solid wood dining table is about $3,000.00.
