Every table created by Steve is unique, just like every tree that is used to make it. Steve loves timber in all its forms – from standing tree to finished table. As a master craftsman he has more than 30 years skill and knowledge in crafting wonderfully unique tables.
A table designed with a live edge can be a really special way to showcase the glorious beauty of English oak. Keeping the original lines of the trunk along its edges, shows the movement of the tree its more raw state. The natural charm of the wood is enhanced, by celebrating all its individual knots, cracks and markings.
“Thank you very much for the kitchen oak table and matching bench seat. I can’t quite believe what I see everyday. The joy and the pleasure I get from seeing these beautiful pieces of furniture is very cathartic and gratifying. It has enhanced our new kitchen and dining room to a warm, cosy and peaceful place to be. Thank you once again and happy new year.” Gerald Baker, Titchfield, Hampshire
At the moment Steve is working on this charming live edge oak table with an extendable table-leaf. You can see how he’s carefully used the full length of the timber. The wood grain and the live edge run seamlessly from the main table through to the additional piece.
This natural feature has also been continued in the design of the accompanying bench. The bench has a stunning live edge to compliment the table itself. It is this attention to detail that ensures that every piece of furniture created by Steve at Folly farm is truly one-of-a-kind.
