The Joinery recently finished building a custom conference table for the GreenWood Resources conference room, designed by WGS Interiors. This table is especially interesting as it is built completely out of Pacific Albus, developed by GreenWood Resource. This wood is not a standard wood of The Joinery as it is softer than most hard woods, however for this conference table it was the perfect fit. We used the Pacific Albus cants available thru The Collins Companies and milled them down to create the table. We worked with GreenWood Resource's IT department to create storage areas below with clear wire channels for their components and data management. We also worked with them to find the perfect commercial finish for their table. More photos and some process shots are shown below. For more information on this project or to receive more information on our custom process please contact us here.
We are constantly on the look out for new products to feature in our showroom and the latest is a locally designed and made lamp by Kayla Burke Design. The one of a kind Living GlowBox features locally harvest Western Walnut. It measures at 62" high x 14" wide and 8" deep and is $2,000. Stop by our showroom to see one in person.

We work with customers every day to design and build the perfect piece of furniture. The custom nightstands shown below were a collaboration between our customer and their helpful sales person, Taryn. We built them out of Wenge (an exotic wood, not usually a standard at The Joinery), Brass pulls and custom Brass ferrules. Below you will see the original drawing we created for the customers and then the final product. If you would like a custom pieces quoted please contact us here.
