If You’re Thinking of Going Live Edge, You’re Not the Only One

Post by Chris Wunder (Scott’s lovely wife)

Recently, a customer who visited the shop said they weren’t sure if WunderWoods was still in business because the most recent blog post was from 2018.  Scott’s always busy, but lately just hasn’t found the time to write one of his informational pieces.  So, I’ve decided to help out with some posts.  I’m sure I won’t have the humor that Scott does, or the helpful how-to information that he provides, but I will highlight projects happening in the shop.  So here’s my first post!

If you’ve seen any custom wood projects in the last few years you know that live edge slabs are all the rage.  Here’s a few pictures of our most recent live edge projects. From corporate offices to laid back bedrooms, live edge wood is everywhere.  If you’d like more information on what we offer in the way of finished or unfinished slabs, please click on the “Live Edge Slabs” in the upper left hand corner of our website.

About wunderwoods

Hi! My name is Scott Wunder and I am the owner of WunderWoods Custom Woodworking. We build wine cellars, built-ins and furniture from local woods, here in St. Louis, MO. Recently, I finished a three-year term as the President of the St. Louis Woodworkers Guild, which had me writing a monthly article for our newsletter. I love to write, especially about wood, and found that I still had more to say. Every day I run into something wood related that I realize some of my customers don't know and this seems like a great forum for sharing what I have learned (instead of telling the same story to each person). The main thing to remember is that I try to keep it light and as my wife always reminds people that have just met me, "He is joking."

    i had been wanting to do live edge furniture for a long time after seeing some examples in magazines and on the internet. Four years ago i found Scott in a craigslist add selling some slabs, i ended up buying 4 slabs and been hooked ever sense. i mostly do furniture for just myself and some family members but recently sold a bed i made. Scott your a hell of a craftsman and if i ever need a special piece for a project i will be giviing you a call again!

    Great job with the first post- I love seeing what y’all are doing! Temptations abound. Any chance we can know what each of those pieces is made from? Thanks,

    Sarah
