The essence of custom furniture is that it is your design and idea, and that it should be unique, and cool, too. First a primer: live-edge means nature dictates what the edges look like. Bookmatched means when opening a book you see the identical figured wood on each left and right page. Slabs are pieces cut from a whole tree as-is. This bed has Virginia walnut live-edge slabs for the head board and foot board coupled with linear pieces framing the slabs as highlights. Crotches are where limbs meet, and the foot board crotch needed a massive void filled with carbon fiber and epoxy as a quasi-futuristic highlight. This is Future Primitive woodworking.
