Most live edge tables are called “Bookmatch Live Edge Slabs” and they are done in an entirely different way than glue-ups. A log is cut into slabs with each slab stacked in order as they were cut. Sequences of two slabs are used for one top. Picture two slabs stacked on top of each other and taking the top slab and flipping it just like you would with the pages of a book. By doing this bookmatch, it makes a symmetrical shaped top with both sides following the same shape. There is one glue joint in the center joining the two slabs together plus dovetails that are routed into the joints for reinforcements. The dovetails will be done in the same species as the top, with the option of choosing a different species for the dovetail such as a Walnut dovetail with a Rustic Cherry top. The beauty of these slabs are stunning because of each top being unique in graining and shape. These slab tops have a high potential for developing season splits, cracks and end grain checks because of the thickness and because of not being glue-up staves. Choosing to own one of these amazing creations of nature is also realizing cracks or splits are not considered defective or cause for return to the place of purchase.

Whether you’re seating 10 people or just 4, you’re going to want to make sure the table you pick out size wise makes sense. Just because a 48″ round can sit 6 people doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best when it comes to sitting 6 people at all times. Below are some example table sizes and our recommendations for each size.
Round & Square Tables
When it comes to square or round tables, typically a 42″ and 48″ will be able to sit the same amount of people just like a 54″ and 60″ can. We have seen some diagrams that show a 48″ can sit 6 people. This is highly situational. The only way something like that is possible if it a pedestal style table. When you sit 6 people at that kind of size, it is a very tight fit as well.
Oval & Rectangular Tables
On any style table, a 42″W x 60″L can sit 4 people comfortably and a 42″W x 66″L or 42″W x 72″L will seat 6 people. Leg tables will be more constrained when it comes adding chairs due to the fact you lose your corners on each end.
On a 42″W x 60″L leg table you will typically only be able to sit 4 people at the table (1 on each end). Depending on the size of the legs, it may be possible to put 6 people around the table but this is rare and still may not be comfortable for everyone sitting. To 6 people around a leg table the minimum size is a 42″W x 66″L but the recommended size is a 42″W x 72″L as it is the most comfortable giving everyone enough leg and elbow space between each other.
When it comes to 42″W x 60″L trestle tables, you will be able to sit 4 people comfortably. Depending on the trestle base, you will only be able to push 4 chairs in all the way. This is the same when it comes to 42″W x 66″L trestle tables. A 42″W x 72″L will be able to push 6 chairs in under the table.
Typically, most tables come in a 42″ wide standard. You are able to increase that to a 48″ wide. This doesn’t increase the amount of people you can sit at your table. This just creates some extra leg room for those on the corners. The one thing to keep in mind when you increase the width, it can make it more difficult passing dishes and condiments. Rather than simply passing the salt, you might have to toss the salt.
Questions and answers of the customers
- Q I'm interested in the Lifestyle Trestle Table with the Live Edge in rustic maple and black base. What are the stains available for that wood? Are there any particular chairs recommended to use with this table? answer nowAnswered by the admin You can view all of stains for Wormy/Brown Maple on our Standard Stains page and Premium Stains page. There truly isn't a particular chair we would recommend with this table as it depends on the sort of look you are after. Common looks though typically have some sort of fully upholstered chair around a live edge table.
