The guys in the Custom Wood Shop do a whole lot more than just build custom Barn Doors or Farm tables, they build just about anything you can imagine. Check out these Custom Cookie Slab Stools With A Modern Touch!
Our Wood Shop Manager Billy Leeka chose Camphor Cookies for this project. Camphor is just one species of lumber that we have in live edge cookie slabs and they make beautiful projects and come in all shapes and sizes. The grain of camphor varies widely and has a medium texture that can be easily sanded smooth. Its lower density also makes it easy to cut and shape. Camphor accepts different glues and epoxies as well as stains, finishes, and paints.
Since Camphor has a lower density than certain other species of wood, stains and other fillers will usually dry quicker. After the stains and fillers have adequately dried, the surface is sanded smooth and a finish coat is applied. And also because of Camphor’s low density, you may need to apply several finish coats. (It soaks it up like a sponge!)
After the cookies have been cut and sanded and get their first coat, Billy now attaches these custom made metal legs, taking this design to the next level!
After the top coat finish has dried, and has an even look and shine, these stools are almost ready to find their new home!
Live edge furniture is often sought after for its organic, unique beauty, and is perfect for adding that special touch to an otherwise ordinary space. Live edge slab lumber can be used to help soften the lines in a space that might otherwise be filled with the cold, straight lines.
Whether considering a new coffee table, accent or end table, or even custom stools, live edge Cookies are perfect for your new custom piece! (Nice job Billy!) Contact our Custom Wood Shop today!
