Live Edge
As the sawmill cuts closer to the outside of the walnut log the dark brown color of the heartwood transitions to the lighter tan of the sap wood. Indian arrowheads and bullets create mineral streaks of blue and black. If we are lucky the outside curved edge of the cut creates what is commonly called live edge. Years ago this edge was removed as well as the lighter sap wood.
But here at Heritage Music Products we reclaim not just the downed logs but this part of the log as well. It reminds us that these beautiful instrument stands were living things and bring life to our musical experience.

Loose knots and voids are filled with black resin.
