Burlee Original in specializes in hand crafted wood furniture, bar and counter-tops, bookshelves, wood accent walls and most types of custom millwork. The work we do is using live edge slabs and lumber that we cut in our saw mill. We control the quality of the wood from from sawing, through drying, and into fabrication.

As beautiful and unique as the trees produced from, live edge wood refers to the natural edge of the wood under the bark after it is cut. Live edge wood keeps the original lines of the trunk along its edges, portraying the wood in its very naturalistic and raw state.

Live edge wood first became popular in the 1940s by George Nakashima and has grown to be used for nearly any piece of furniture or home touch, from tables, benches, headboards or shelving.

Burlee Original’s offer a large variety of live edge slabs and live edge lumber with all different shapes, sizes and species. Although we cut all types of different live edge slabs we have definitely found our love and specialty in live edge figured walnut and curly spalted maple slabs.

There is just something about that raw beautiful natural design the wood showcases, it is truly a piece of art more then a piece of wood. Whether it’s a gorgeous Nakashima Style table top slab, the amazing feather duster figure in a crotch slab or a piece of live edge burl for that coffee table you are building, a Burlee Original can be the centerpiece of your interior home design.
