This piece happened to be a sister slab to another live edge desk we made previously (example here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/208175275/live-edge-desk-black-walnut-handmade?ref=shop_home_active_12). A client had reached out to us expressing interest in ordering a table that contained similar features, with circling grain patterns swirling around the slab's center, a richness in color, and something that would serve as a statement piece/focal point of his living space. We were thrilled that we had the perfect piece to work with! The slab serves as a great size for a small desk for those trying to obtain more minimalist furnishings. 

If you are interested in a custom piece like this, please contact us and provide the following info:

- requested dimensions
- requested slab thickness
- specific features: i.e., smooth or wavy live edge, darker or lighter in color, heavy or mild in grain patterns, etc.
- mild steel or stainless steel legs (stainless most expensive option)
- leg style: we have a variety of leg designs to choose from, please let us know if you would like a specific design other than our trapezoid style.

Once we have the information we need, we will scout out slabs that meet your requirements and send over photos of what is available to use, along with a price quote.

1. STANDARD CARNAUBA WAX FINISH | This will allow the color of the steel to remain natural and bright. The steel is ground and polished, followed by several applications of carnauba wax. We will supply you with application instructions and a small wax tin that should last about 5-10 years. Application is simple, rubbing a modest amount on, allowing it to dry, and then rubbing off the excess. 2 applications every few years for maximum effect. Not recommended for humid climates.
COST | +$0 (included)

2. CLEAR COAT FINISH | This will preserve the natural color of the steel, but will protect it from staining and rusting and requires no upkeep. The steel is ground and polished and will remain natural and bright. 
UPGRADE COST | starting at +$85

3. BLACK MAGIC PATINA FINISH + CLEAR COAT | This finish is going to give off a more industrial look, bringing the color of the legs to a deeper/darker grey. Several hand-rubbed coats are applied to the steel legs, allowing drying times between and repeating the application several times until the desired color is reached. This process combines the patina and clear coat for maintenance-free durability.
UPGRADE COST | starting at +$145

4. POWDER-COAT FINISH | Powder-coating would allow us to achieve just about any color, matte or glossy. If you are unfamiliar with powder-coating, it is a free-flowing dry powder that is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to form a hard finish that it tougher than conventional paint. It's used mainly for coating auto parts, bike parts and outdoor furniture which require super durable and water resistant finishes. Colors are limitless, but typically our clients prefer a simple black powder-coat. We can arrange to have the legs professionally powder-coated by a pro steel shop in our neighborhood, who charges accordingly for different dimensions.
UPGRADE COST | starting at +$195

In the event that you require this piece to be made larger for dining table use, if you are unsure of the exact table size you'll need, consider the following basic guidelines:

-  First determine the maximum number of guests you wish to have room to seat
-  Provide each guest 24-30 inches of space at the dining table (chairs range from apprx 16-20" and require at least 6" of space on each side to allow guests to seat comfortably)
-  Add an extra 12 inches at each end for those seated at the head and foot of the table
-  Allow for at least 36 inches between the dining table and any walls or other furniture
