Oregon Myrtle is a unique wood found in Southern Oregon. Thanks to partnerships like Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities, The Joinery is able to offer furniture built from sustainably harvested Oregon Myrtlewood.
In many homes it’s the coffee table, even more than the dining table, the wet bar or the kitchen island, that serves as the community center. At various times it can be library and snack bar, display space and conversational hub. It’s certainly a centerpiece in most living rooms, and as such acts as a kind of first violinist, setting the tone for the surrounding “orchestra.”
When you're ready to turn a new page in your décor, have we got some pages for you! The Joinery's new catalog makes its debut in September, and we can barely contain our excitement over its stunning new vignettes of our pieces at home in their natural habitats.
We thought we’d tease you with a sneak peek of two new catalog shots featuring some Joinery favorites as well as new designs that made their debut this year.
To turn the tables on Joni Mitchell, there’s a time in life when car wheels turn to cart wheels — which is right around the time that your guests arrive and the party begins. And when you roll in with The Joinery’s new Shaker-inspired Milo Bar Cart, you’ll drink up the oohs and aahs like a slow sip of a shaken, not stirred gin martini.
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 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.
Our latest custom design to come thru our wood shop is this stand up desk designed by Howells Architecture + Design. Michael Howells brought in his design and worked with our furniture designer and sales team to engineer it to be built out of solid White Oak. The Joinery worked directly with the designer to ensure that the hardware and functionality of the desk was exactly what their client was envisioning. The end result is stunning. This desk is a little larger scale than standard. It measures at 25" deep x 36" wide x 74" high.
Featured below is a City Scape Mirror created for a customer. We based the frame and scale off of a teak mirror he brought in for reference and collaborated with him to produce the below skyline. Our craftsmen used a number of our standard woods to create the range of building styles.
We love creating custom designs with our customers. In fact, over 40% of of the pieces that The Joinery builds is custom. Below is a great example of the fun ideas our customers come up with - a custom Valet, shown in Madrone.
