Live Edge Wood - Inspiration for all budgets and experience levels

Here are 21 reasons/designs why working with live edge wood is pretty darn cool!

We've got the wood... here's the inspiration... why not start the summer off with a live edge wood project. They can be as challenging or as simple as you make them! 

Love this. Simple, yet a unique touch for your kitchen.
Beautiful... and easy to make.
Love the continuation of the grain on the side. What a stunning table!

Now how cool is this! Two side tables designed to sit together to form one long table when needed! Genius...
Just love the simplicity of this style
What a neat idea for the base
The opposite position for the two slabs is more common but this is fantastic... something different

Loving the shape of the legs!

Now this is just incredible.... loving everything about the side detail on this table

What a neat idea to add a contrasting wood for height on the table legs... I like it!

Live edge wood always has some character... filling gaps with stones is a great idea

Great concept putting the live edge material on the inside of a table

Gorgeous... just gorgeous.

Now this is a bit too "busy" for my taste... but the concept of different levels and varying shapes is really interesting.

Somebody is thinking.... perfect idea for your desk

This is fantastic.... 

What a great idea... no more worrying about cutting yourself having the bark on the edge of the table! And less work by not having to glue the boards together... 

A perfect compliment to your couch! 

If I owned a bar/restaurant this would be the first thing added... fantastic idea.
