Finding the right components for a live edge coffee table is the most difficult part of all, even though all you need is a slab of wood and some legs or a base. Figuring it out the right combination is just part of the problem. Finding a piece of wood that has the right shape and size is not as easy as some of you might think.
Speaking of materials, coffee tables can come in a wide variety too. There are industrial ones in metal. Materials such as glass combined with either brass or steel offer a more sophisticated look. Whether it is oak, maple, cherry or walnut, wood has its own feel to it. Oak and maple are on the more casual side with walnut and cherry having a more formal look.
A coffee table is one of the things you could easily build yourself if you wanted to. Consider the classical approach: a simple table with a wooden top. There are plenty of things you can customize about such a piece of furniture. For example, you can give it any type of legs you want. The wooden top can be customized as well.
