Large Elm Bespoke Handmade Waney Edge Slab Dining Table commission. This beautiful live Edge Elm dining table was commissioned for a client’s new home in the Cotswold’s. The house is surrounded by a stunning woodland which has a number of ancient Elm trees that can be seen from the main living quarters. There is also a lake near the house which adds a unique reflective light element. Here we see the client’s choice of Elm fits perfectly into the natural environment.
Dimensions of this large bespoke live edge slab dining table are 3m x 0.9m x 50mm thick top. The top has been finished with a natural matt hard wax oil. The metal base provides a perfectly contrasting stage upon which to showcase the natural character and grain patterns of the elm. The base is box frame mild steel at 80mm x 40mm and can be painted to client requirements or left as an industrial contrast to the beautiful timber. The client in this case preferred a tapered base to give an illusion of the table ascending as the tree does from it’s roots.
The English Elm Waney Edge was sourced to the clients specifications and seats 10 to 12 people.
Thes Tabletop flattened with a hand plane, bark removed, sanded using belt sander then rotary sander. Then finished with a natural hard wax oil.
