Live Edge Vail sources the absolute finest logs mother nature can provide. We then mill our lumber into live edge slabs that get created into custom tables and wood countertops for our Colorado clients in the Vail Valley and beyond. By sourcing what we feel are the most interesting and rare logs on the East Coast of the United States, we can guarantee our clients the best hardwood products anywhere. For this particular project, our client in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, wanted to warm up their kitchen by replacing a stone granite bar countertop with a live edge slab wood countertop.
For their kitchen, they choose two highly figured Maple live edge slabs to compliment their rustic modern mountain decor. Even though Maple is a beautiful choice, Ash, Honey Locust, Black Walnut, Hickory, White Oak, Red Elm, Sycamore, Poplar, Box Elder, Mahogany and various other hardwood species would have been excellent choices as well. The chosen Maple bookmatch slabs used for this minor kitchen remodel have tons of character and are loaded with figure. This Maple wood countertop turned out to be an exceptional show stopper focal point piece for their luxury home kitchen upgrade. We used a tung oil / resin based finish and epoxy filled in all cracks and crevices to bring out the beautiful character in the wood. It will also provide a long lasting finish that will provide a gorgeous look and years of protection.
Wood Countertops are an excellent way to balance any room overloaded with stone. Live Edge Vail offers a variety of species can be used such as Maple, Ash, Honey Locust, Black Walnut, Hickory, White Oak, Red Elm, etc to become the focal point of a kitchen or bath remodel. Wood countertops will naturally warm up any room with their unique earthy tones, contrast and interesting figure that offers the client a one-off piece that nobody else has.
