We see the intrinsic beauty of each piece of wood that we work with and know that their unique characteristics are derived from the stress that the tree has been through over its many years of existence. We are literally saving the last vestiges of trees that were growing when this country was founded. They are often removed from the yards of historic homes and have stood alone exposed to a myriad of natural stressors no tree in a forest would ever be exposed to. It is those stresses that create the intrinsic beauty.
Often times different is interpreted as ugly, but we think different is beautiful.. It is the splits and cracks and holes and decay that often produce the most unique characteristics on the inside of a tree. So it is with humans, often beauty is not skin deep, it is contained deep on the inside behind all of those scars that takes quite a bit of effort to get to but once we do, it always seems worth it. It is because of this that we feel deeply connected with our work and with our customers. They know we see them.
We create these custom works of art for functional use and inherent enjoyment and hope that everyone who sees thems feels the same joy that we do when crafting them.

We purchased a live edge piece for a small kitchen island and Ron was super easy to work with, and knows his wood types! He quickly read my style and suggested a beautiful piece and custom cut it to fit. Wood Tops and Tables is a hidden gem and if you are looking for a unique piece or even custom countertops, be sure to check it out first! You won’t be disappointed!
Our experience working with Ron was great - very upfront about his pricing and process. He consulted with us constantly as our project was progressing and the finished product did NOT disappoint! We now have a showpiece table in our kitchen that will be with us for many years. I would absolutely work with Ron again or recommend him to friends.
Ron and his space are both warm and inviting. He is more than knowledgeable and passionate about the pieces he sells. He can see the opportunity in every piece of wood he touches.
