From tree trunks to terrific tables tops

We are dedicated to the art of transforming natural wood into stunning, one-of-a-kind live edge table tops that enhance the beauty of any space. Use our locally sourced and meticulously dried timber to create exquisite, handcrafted live edge wood tables.

Choose from our stunning selection of live edge wood from UK grown trees, including ash, beech, elm, oak, maple and walnut. We offer a range of thicknesses and widths, suitable for your wood slab table, ensuring that you have the right piece of wood for your project.

When choosing to create a live edge wood table, sanding, sealing and oiling is key to longevity. Our timber pieces can either be supplied in their natural, rough sawn state for further finishing or we can plane them to a smooth finish, suitable for fine sanding and sealing. To achieve a smooth finish, we suggest you use a variety of sand paper grits, reducing in coarseness down to a 120 grit as the last treatment for your wood slab table.

We recommend finishing your live edge table tops with two coats of OsmoPolyx-Oil, an oil and wax combination. We stock epoxy resin in a variety of pigment colours for tables and tops that you would like to incorporate a ‘resin river’.

At Elephant Timber, we take great pride in our commitment to sustainability and supporting our local community. We carefully select timber from our own tree surgery business, ensuring that every piece we use is sustainably harvested, promoting responsible forestry practices.

Because all of the trees we sell are local and not imported from abroad, “wood miles” are significantly reduced, enabling us to provide a sustainable product. By sourcing only local materials, we not only reduce our environmental impact but also contribute to the growth and prosperity of the beautiful Sussex region.

We offer some of the most unique pieces of characterful timber to create your beautiful live edge wood table. Our hope is that these pieces of, once majestic trees, get a second chance to live on again by being crafted into a live edge table that you love.

Please select the exact piece for your table top from our online shop or feel free to visit us and see our current pieces.
