Living Edge Tables Welcoming Natural Imperfections

Living Edge Tables Welcoming Natural Imperfections

Designer Greg Klassen thinks that the imperfections can really inspire and includes them into his tables making them almost art. Greg takes two living edge slabs with the meandering natural curvatures facing each other towards what will be the center of the finished piece. The living edges create a support for a hand cut tinted blue glass sheet that will span the two slabs, creating one continuous surface. Voids are also treated the same way and have the appearance of small ponds or lakes within the wood top. Small checks and splits are left au naturale, adding to the natural patina of the surface. Sometimes the glass is fitted into a rebate to create a lowered crevice rather than one continuous flat surface.
