CUTLER LIVE EDGE DINING TABLEView full Traverse collection
A rustic-modern centerpiece, the Cutler Live Edge Dining Table is the honored guest of the Traverse dining room. With shaping that replicates the natural lines of a tree, the top is made using solid maple. To support such a top we designed four large, solid maple uprights that are connected by a maple beam for added rigidity. In addition to its robust appearance, the top features our Kinguard performance finish which provides additional protection against typical dining room spills.
Inspired by a decades old relationship with solid wood, the Traverse collection is our way of letting the craft speak for itself. It begins with Ambrosia Maple which includes beautiful natural character markings that highlight the solid wood nature of the collection. We allow the natural worm holes and their characteristic markings to show through alongside the various grain patterns of the maple. From there the design determined that the joinery that is used in crafting solid wood furniture itself should be the focus. Details such as the box joint where the two solid wood surfaces are connected or more discretely, the base which features an open end tenon are left in plain view. It doesn't take a carpenter to appreciate the workmanship in this clever merging of time honored craftsmanship and modern style.
