Live Edge Texas Wood
Hawkins’ live edge texas wood furniture captures the spirit of Texas. We recover vintage woods – like pecan, long-leaf pine, and black walnut – from old farm houses, dance halls, and bowling alleys across Texas. We also use wood from a handful of small, family-owned mills in Texas.
Most of this wood – oak, mesquite, pecan, knotty alder, and loblolly pine – is milled from trees that have died due to drought, storms, or the fires in Bastrop County. These old trees are full of character and we are grateful for the opportunity to rescue them from becoming mulch and give them new life by turning them into something beautiful and useful for people’s homes.

We use a finishing process that enhances the natural color of the wood. After sanding is complete, we apply Danish oil that has a slight amber tint that penetrates into the wood. Then we apply dark walnut Danish oil that changes the color of the wood by around 10%. When the desired color is achieved, we use a water-based polyurethane coating that protects the piece, allowing your furniture to withstand the spills and bumps that accompany a full life.
