Live edge tables.. too trendy?  We are shopping for a dining table and the wife likes them.  I like the walnut ones but I don't know if I will tire of the look in 5 years.

I don't think that you will tire of the look at all.

Those stairs would kill me.. even having 6-8 steps at most w/ a split level (4 distinct levels, 4 sets of stairs) is killing me now..

I do not believe nature/natural can ever wear out its welcome.
The live edge stiff I see is still fabulously expensive, when it comes down to WalMart-level pricing and is mass produced (which really isn't possible), then maybe.

Local place here harvests slabs and sells them cheap. My daughter's desk and my upstairs hall table were just over a hundred bucks for both for lumber...good big of assembly required.

That is quite a beauty.  We have a small house,  only looking at 6 feet, hoping to keep it to half that price.  Other option we are considering is vintage MCM teak or walnut.

Great leg workout! 

I do agree that stairs suck for normal every day use.

@A Horse With No Name @Robert Hall @balthazar

This company is up in a little town called LaConner, indian reservation, the guy uses recovered wood from the Ocean, buildings, forest, etc. I bought my wife her Jewelry box from here it is a work of Art.

We want to one day after we remodel our house get one of his custom built square tables for 12 people. Just beautiful wood work.

I will also say that my wife and I love these two woodworking companies out of Victoria BC in Canada.

Willow is a notoriously soft and unproductive species though.

Edmunds.com has their build and price up for the Chevy Blazer.  Way too expensive.  I also went to cars.com, where the Blazer is available in search mode.  Saw an AWD RS "in transit" listed at $51k.  Completely nuts.

The pricing may well be nuts, but it is what the market will bear.  I doubt any non-luxury sedan can get away with that pricing as of now.

Crazy pricing.  A base Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 is $32.9k.  V6 standard.
