Live Edge Countertops embrace nature with their unique organic shape and characteristics. Live edge refers to the bark side of a piece of lumber. Christopher Peacock used the Live Edge Countertop as a reminder of the garden outside.

The countertop measures to be approximately 40 inches x 45-3/4 inches. It includes a 12 inch Round Routed-in Bowl. The countertop is sealed with our exclusive Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish in Matte sheen.
