A whirlwind month, What goes into a river table?, Goodbye Shar, plus exciting new projects and latest creation images to inspire.



It's been exceptionally busy these last four weeks but I'm going to try to pack it all into this newsletter and keep your attention with not just the stunning studio or in-situ photos but also a few 'behind the scenes' photos so you can see a little more of us, of where we work and how we work, sawdust and all.

Those that know me, know this is a big step...I've always tried to show what we do in the best possible images but here goes; let me know what you think of this new 'revealing' approach by emailing me your thoughts at

We're a little sad around the studio workshop this week as we goodbye and good luck to our sunny sales associate, Sharlaine. She's been with Live Edge for over 4 years and was always ready with a smile, a kind word, and great design ideas (she also organized an amazing axe throwing staff appreciation day!)!


The images below show some of the many projects she worked on with our amazing clients, who we know will miss her as much as we will.


Happy Trails Sharlaine!

We've been working and refining our glass inlay process since 2006 and thought it might be time to show you some 'behind the scenes' action shots of this process.

First, let's look at the mouth-watering, after shots.

Shown here is a clever communal table design that can be one long table or 3 dining tables, all with a flowing river running through.

Thanks to Atlas Steak+Fish and for the photos (Couldn't resist posting the incredible seafood tower shot).  

Now let's take a closer look at the process of creating these tables.

Taking the time to layout, first the slabs and then the shape of the glass.
Each glass inlay is custom cut and polished in our studio to make sure the glass is the highest quality and the best fit it can be.

This combination of tables was so big we had to take it outside during the pre-flight assembly check.




Did you know that we custom make upholstered furniture and banquettes?

And there's no 'live edge' in sight!!

Here's a look at the assembly shots from one of our banquette creations with built-in power.

Client respect is paramount to us so we've secured this particular design for one of our clients as proprietary but we can create anything like this even from a sketch on the back of a napkin!
