We create a waterfall design by making a precise miter cut on one end of a solid slab. It's a technique to achieve the illusion of wood grain cascading over the edge. This design approach can be applied to custom wood furniture pieces such as, live edge coffee tables, sofa tables, or desks. Customizing the size allows for tailoring the design to fit specific needs and spaces

Round tables can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to a dining area. They often have a more cohesive and balanced aesthetic compared to rectangular tables. They are available in a wide range of styles, from traditional and classic to modern and minimalistic.
Round tables can be small for intimate settings or larger to accommodate more guests. Choose a size that suits your space and the number of people you intend to seat. Many round tables have a single pedestal base at the center instead of four legs at the corners. This not only offers more legroom but also adds a unique design element.
Ultimately, the choice of a round dining table depends on your personal preferences, the size of your dining area, and the atmosphere you want to create during meals and gatherings.

Bookmatching is a technique in woodworking where two successive cuts from the same tree are joined together to create a symmetrical pattern that resembles an "opened book." This technique highlights the natural beauty of the wood grain and creates a visually striking effect.
When creating a bookmatched pair, there are different layout options to consider. One option is to have a direct mirror image, where the two adjoining surfaces are an exact reflection of each other. This layout creates a seamless and symmetrical pattern that emphasizes the continuity of the wood grain and is a popular choice for custom wood tables.

-The live edge maintains the natural contours of the tree, providing an organic and live appearance. The top surface showcases the wood's natural grain patterns, knots, and imperfections, adding character and charm.
- The straight edge table features a clean and straight-cut edge, removing the natural irregularity found in the outer edge of the tree. The straight edge design offers a more refined and modern appearance, making it suitable for various interior styles.

We use a clear epoxy finish on all of our custom furniture pieces, except for high shelves. Using epoxy as a finish on our custom wood tables and other furniture pieces enhances their beauty and durability.
By applying epoxy as a finish, we achieve a high level of clarity, which allows the natural grain and color of the wood to shine through. This enhances the overall aesthetics of the piece, making it visually appealing. Furthermore, epoxy provides a durable and long-lasting protective layer. It forms a hard and resistant surface that can withstand daily use, spills, and other potential damage. This helps to preserve the wood and extend the lifespan of your custom pieces. Epoxy creates a smooth and glossy surface. We sand out the gloss from the epoxy finish to achieve a matte finish. A matte finish provides a subdued and natural look, giving the wood a soft and tactile appeal. We then seal the matte epoxy surface with a Reclaimed Secret's sealant which further enhances its durability and longevity. It forms a protective barrier that can extend the lifespan of the piece, ensuring it lasts for years to come.
The combination of a smooth and durable epoxy surface, a matte finish, and a protective sealant provides a premium solution that showcases the natural beauty of the wood while ensuring its longevity. It's a fantastic approach to delivering high-quality and long-lasting wood pieces to our customers.In addition to its durability, epoxy is also resistant to moisture. It helps to prevent the wood from warping, cracking, or fading over time.
We mix our clear epoxy with Diamond Coat Metallic Powder to create translucent and pearlescent effects in our epoxy when filling cracks and holes. Filling cracks and holes with colored epoxy can add a striking visual element to the overall design. Metallic pigment powders will give a deep metallic shades and shimmer effect to epoxy resin. Vibrant colors used to be blended into mixed epoxy to enhance the color, add shimmery and glitter to our epoxy projects. We offer a wide variety of epoxy colors that provide our customers with the opportunity to customize their wood pieces and make them truly unique.
Using colored epoxy allows you to highlight and enhance the natural beauty of the wood while also adding a touch of creativity. Whether you prefer vibrant and bold colors or more subtle and earthy tones, there are options to suit every preference and style.
The epoxy filling not only adds visual appeal but also helps stabilize the wood and prevent further cracking or damage.
choosing an epoxy color is just another way to personalize your furniture or woodworking projects, making them truly one-of-a-kind. It's an excellent way to add character and artistry to the finished piece.
