Our core philosophy is simple at Northteak, we are truly influenced by the stunning, organic palate of nature. We are inspired by all the majestic trees and botanicals that surround beautiful British Columbia. The product of that is our Live Edge table line. Our tables are more than just furniture; they are works of art that inspire conversations, enhance any space and bring a touch of nature to your every day.
A live edge table is a style of furniture where we incorporate the natural edge of wood into the design of our tables. They feature the most unique characteristics within the grain. Why pick our live edge tables? Each of our tops is carefully picked and crossed cut from a single tree. It is cut with precision across the center where the wood is the widest. All the trees involved in producing our live edge tables have been hand selected by our artisans and responsibly harvested. They are then finished in our facility in Richmond, BC. Each piece is truly one of a kind. The final process involves kiln-drying the wood for at least 1 year and then it is sanded and stained, all by hand, until we reach the desired finish. It is then treated with a polyurethane protective coating/sealer and acclimatized for a long period of time so it remains strong and handsome through generations of use. We take care to bring out and accentuate the natural beauty of each grain pattern, without the use of butterfly clips.
From choosing the right base, to the final stain color, our experienced woodcraftsmen are able to work with you to customize the table of your dreams! As a bonus, every single one of our live edge table tops are mold – resistant and completely safe from tough stains such as coffee and wine.
