Live Edge Wood Furniture and Natural Edge Wood Furniture
Live edge or natural edge is a style of furniture where the carpenter incorporates the natural edge of the wood into the design of the piece. Live edge furniture often incorporates gnarly wood, such as Alligator, Juniper, and salvaged wood that could not be used in conventional woodworking. There are special challenges that only the top expert sawyers conquer successfully to produce great unique end cuts. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it themselves!

Whether you are looking for extravagant wood furniture or something more modern, live and natural edge cuts are hands down the most gorgeous pieces of wood furniture you will come across.
What is the Difference between Live Edge Furniture and Rustic Furniture?
Live edge is a mix of "Western" and rustic furniture styles. Originally it was categorized as rustic, but the two styles have many differences. Rustic furniture contains raw elements of the natural tree it came from like sticks, twigs, and bark from the lumber. Many companies, artists, and craftspeople make rustic furniture in different of styles with a variety of historical and contemporary influences. There are two basic types of rustic-furniture construction: bentwood (sticks are harvested fresh or steamed to make them supple, then bent into a variety of structures and decorative shapes) and twig work (sticks – straight, curved or forked – which are assembled into structures and decorative shapes within a structure). Sometimes both types are used in the same piece. Some rustic furniture makers use mortice and tenon construction; others simply nail or screw members together.
