This live edge glass-bridge dining table was made from a single large slab of Black Walnut from a 200 year old tree salvaged in Essex County. With stunning grain figure and a simple modern base design, this table stands out from pack and is sure to catch the attention of your dinner party guests.
The 3rd of a 3 part series, this coffee table is the second last piece to be produced from an amazing Manitoba Maple tree. This crotch section of the tree came from the top of the 3 stacked series and is supporting a 42" x 42" sheet of 12mm low-E tempered glass. Custom hardware was used to inset the mounting bolts in chamfered holes to give the glass top a smooth and unobstructed surface.
As one of our most creative large coffee tables to date, this was an engineering feat. It was no easy task suspending a 60" x 60" 180lb sheet of low-E glass on two solid metal bars (40lbs ea.) with just two short 1" x 10" channels carved out of this massive Manitoba Maple crotch section.

This piece is made of Solid 2.25" thick Canadian Black Walnut salvaged from Essex County and the first in the line of FLO Hardwoods LED lit pieces of functional art. The void in the center of this curly and figured black walnut slab was filled with broken safety glass and clear resin and is under lit with wireless RGB LED to allow for any colour light to be selected. Unique and one-of-a-kind, this coffee table is an eye catching conversation piece.
Grain is the game for this 8 foot long sleek live-edge oak dining table. The modern minimal base floats the slab top gracefully, yet has a hint of industrial design. The ends of the table are cut to a 22.5 degree angle to match the angles of the tables base. While seating 6 guests very comfortably, the base design allows for up to 8 seated. The custom blended stain and lacquer finish helps to reveal the beautiful quarter-sawn grain of this unique piece.
This book-matched set of solid Black Walnut coffee or side tables are a slice of wood heaven with their beautiful burl figure and 3 pith design. The surface is 35" - 25" wide, 16" tall and is accented with minimal hairpin legs that are inserted with FLO Hardwoods custom install method.
This beautiful dining table was designed with modern simplicity yet minimal complexity. A solid 2" thick and 42" wide oak top with a custom grey-black ombre finish sets off the table surface and creates a stunning contrast with the aluminum base.
This base was custom fabricated to be lightweight as well as sturdy and functional. The leaf is stored inside the base which brings the surface from 8' to 10' in length.
This dining table speaks for its own beauty in solid Canadian black walnut at 2.25" thick, 64" wide and 84" long. The tree from which the boards were milled was salvaged from a tornado that came through Leamington Ontario in 2010.
The center 'feature board' shows the beautiful contrast of the heartwood and sapwood to create the focal point of the design. Flat black textured steel legs were designed to draw the attention back to the beautiful grain of the table's surface that is finished with hand-rubbed oil.
The McLennan Side
We call this the table with many faces. It also displays a nicely spalted top surface. Because of the way the Manitoba Maple (aka Box Elder) species grows, they are known for cracking at the trunk due to their nature of the outward expanding canopy . As seen in this table, one side shows the unique profile of the tree's outer perimeter and the other side shows the rough and amazing effects of the split trunk. It is this feature that makes this a great accent and conversation piece. This material was salvaged from a fire wood pile in 2013.
Grain symmetry was the driving design direction for this commissioned dining table. The three wide solid oak boards were carefully chosen to produce this stunning table. The linear flowing grain pattern is awe inspiring and speaks to the true beauty of this table.
Second to the design, durability and flexibility in maintaining the table was very important to the client. All knots and holes in the surface were carefully filled with black epoxy.
The base is steel, tough and textured for durability. The top is 46" x 67" and the finish is an eight layer custom pigment and hand rubbed oil that is very durable and easy to maintain.
This was a historical project for the Mailloux family that has a rich backstory. The trestle-style table was reclaimed and built by craftsman Tom Mailloux and perfectly captures the family story of this heirloom piece. It is also laced nicely with quarter-sawn accents throughout.
The material for this project was reclaimed from a home built by Toms great grandfather in the late 1800's. During the demolition and rebuild of the storied home, these boards were pulled from the walls. The old sycamore boards were filled with square-head nails that were carefully removed and saved to be placed back into the finished table to pay homage to its origins.
The original tree from which the material was harvested was milled on the Mailloux property, so it was decided to leave the old mill marks on the underside of the surface boards. It is estimated that the tree from which the boards were harvested likely started growing in the mid 1600's.
With its amazing story The Mailloux table will live on throughcoming generations and will be enjoyed by many.
