    I bought this item and after a few days she says it is sold and offers me a different one. I asked for a picture. Then I get a refund. I keep messaging her to ask what happened and no response. I really wanted it!!!

    I messaged hildavonbinen after her purchase. I asked her if she would like the piece that was in her order as well as another piece because I recently had sold the second piece and had not gotten the chance to update my shop. She apparently had been messaging two sellers and got us confused, sending me messages about how I had sent her pictures, which is not true. In the meantime I refunded the money so it would not go through and cause issues later. When money is refuded the product automatically becomes available on your shop. After multiple messages and confusion I see a one-star review. I was very shocked and upset because I am a single mother and I work hard for my money. I had messaged this person and tried to make it right by refunding her the money. Why would give a one-star rating for your money being refunded?

    I absolutely adore this table. The craftsmanship is unmatched and this will be the new centerpiece of my living room. It feels like a living piece of furniture. So much wonderful energy from this piece. Beyond grateful to have discovered Kari and her Etsy shop.

INSPIRATION from Nature, Imagination, and Real Life!

My name is Kari Janiszewski. When I went through some hard times a few years back it pushed me to start doing what I love again, painting. I also love nature. I eventually combined the two and started making Live Edge tables with resin. I opened my own Etsy shop in 2018, website, and more and now have customers from everywhere. I’ve been blessed! I love what I do and I put my heart and soul into every peice.


I started my own business in 2018.


I now have a Etsy page, website, and customers from all over the US. If I can do it anyone can!


I’m a mother, artist, business owner, and more. My passion is art and nature so I combined the two and started creating Live Edge tables with resin


Wood! Love it! My 1st wood project was a chair for my son. Loved working with wood so much I kept playing around and making different things, now, 4 years later I have an Etsy shop, website, and customers from all over😄 Every peice of wood has a funny story behind it. It's not easy to find reclaimed wood that is just right for a table and it is not easy to lift wood onto a truck or car. I've rolled wood down streets to my home, I've broken a dolly trying to get a massive cedar slab into my girlfriends car, I could go on and on. The struggle of finding and moving it is worth it every time! I've gotten lucky and have found some absolutely stunning pieces! The lines, the shape, the colors, all amazing! Something about sanding and chainsawing is very therapeutic. Live Edge.... why so valuable? Well it's not only unique but the tree that produces those slabs are much older, most trees for lumber r around 25 years old. Older trees, I find just by pure luck, have fallen from a storm, etc. Finding one that is big and beautiful is harder to do than you would think. Then you gotta transfer that bad boy! ;).... but yes #Live Edge Furniture is one of a kind!

People love these slabs because they like the natural appearance of the live edge, and the interesting/amazing characteristics the wood has. Characteristics are things like knots,cracks, and the shape. Slabs are stunning to look at and easy to get lost in.  Our world today is full of highly engineered and polished artifacts, it’s a relief to see something that has not been transformed beyond recognition by machines.

What is Spalted?
"Spalting is any form of woodcoloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting can cause weight loss and strength loss in the wood, the unique coloration and patterns of spalted wood are sought by woodworkers."

Every one of my paintings has a story as Well. My emotions go into my paintings. I love expressing myself through art. Huge stress reliever and very therapeutic aswell.
Creating art and being amazed at Gods Art. Couldn't ask for a better job.
be One In A Million not One of Millions.

Frequently asked questions
Are all your live edge designs from reclaimed wood?

Yes!! My slabs come from trees that have fallen due to storms, disease, and other natural causes.

Sizing details

The average coffee table should have about 16 inches of space surrounding it so you can comfortably get around the furniture. Average sized coffee tables have a width of 18 to 24 inches and a length ranging between 36 and 48 inches. Ideally, when you place your coffee table in front of a sofa or couch, the coffee table should take up no more than 2/3 than the width of your seating.

How can I customize my live edge?

You can pick the type of wood, the size of wood and the height of legs. I usually have many different types of wood on hand. Also if you choose to do epoxy, I can add any color, resin ice or even glow. Help me make you a design as unique as you!

How long would a custom live edge table take?

Depending on the size it usually takes two to three months to finish. I will be working alongside you throughout the whole process.
