Ten foot live edge slab countertop in Winchester. We found the perfect slab for this project through Berkshire Products large inventory of elm slabs. This elm slab was the perfect width to leave it live on both sides. It had one tear out, the only imperfection in the entire thing, that lined up right where we would be doing a cutout for a sink. Basically, it was fated to end up in this kitchen. Elm is a really nice, lower cost option to walnut, and it blends really well in most spaces. Elm slabs tend to have a very consistent and clean grain, and a nice color palette.
The clients for this live edge walnut table had recently purchased a new home in Needham with a really interesting landscaping and a lot of trees all around the house. They have this really great sun room off of their kitchen that they are remodeling into a nice dining space, but they couldn't wait to have a new live edge walnut table that they could really enjoy using. They came to us, as many of our clients do, with an idea for a live edge table, and a few favorite base designs. We helped them search for and select a really gorgeous 8 foot live edge walnut slab.
Elm is gorgeous. This elm slab is even more beautiful in person than it is in photos. Note, this is not the natural color of elm. Elm is a much lighter brown, and there are typically some vert subtle burnt orange undertones throughout. The slabs are clean, and the grain is really captivating without being over the top. The look of an elm slab will never get old. In this case, the client wanted a large live edge table, and they wanted to a specific dark color, but walnut was not quite the right color, and also walnut slabs are quire expensive.
