I feel that an appropriate review for Rustic Elements is needed. The level of craftsmanship, communication, skill- I rarely think that a business is so stellar as these guys. I will tell you why I am writing this.
I came into 2 raw slabs of American Elm, live edge a few years ago. I wanted to make a live edge table- and shamelessly copy much, much more expensive versions at Room and Board and other top end stores. Scott and I communicated via email, text, phone regarding the wood and I finally made the drive down to Joliet. A few weeks later, my 2-slabs were perfectly finished, bookmatched to perfection, and I had a wonderful table top. I had my own legs- and now I have a table that looks like a masterpiece.
Fast forward- I wanted an edgy coffee table. I had some bowling alley lane, wood. I thought it would be different, but cool for a loft. I went down again, for the master finishing. Scott and company could have finished the wood to perfection, but stressed that I was pouring money into a non-finish quality work. I had no choice but to trust them. I didn’t want to pour thousands of dollars into something that would look 50% as good as my imagination had made it out to be. After careful consultation, I ended up going with a Rustic-made end grain butcher block top for my 2-tier coffee table. Again, the quality was perfection. I have a one of a kind table that is simply terrific.
