Manufacturing The Tables
The characteristic features of American Black Walnut allow manufacturers to easily create live edge tables. After milling, American Black Walnut timbres are well polished before constructing any furniture. At Wood Touch, we use both hand and machine tools along with glue. Often, finished live edge tables are undercoated with clear finish coat. These layers on table provide improved protection from moderate heat, moisture, and/or spills than varnishes.
Clean the surface of the American Black Walnut live edge table with slightly damp lint-free cloth. This would remove any dust or food particles that may have accumulated over the day. In case there is any minor scratch, polish with suitable wax. Always place the American Black Walnut tables away from direct sunlight.
