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.

If you would like more information on these bookcases or would like us to design a custom piece for you contact us here.

Cloud City Ice Cream is one of our favorite companies on Woodstock and this past summer we were excited to be able to create a cash register/ iPad stand made from Western Walnut. The company hand makes amazing ice cream including Black Currant Tea, Lemon with Black Pepper-Marionberry Jam and traditional favorites such as Pistachio. Stop by their store and see the stand for yourself and enjoy a great scoop or two of ice cream. Read more about them on their Facebook page here. Below are some photos of their custom stand.

This month's featured space is from Bennett Frank McCarthy Architect, Inc. The project involved a total renovation of a two story carriage house on Blagden Alley in Washington DC. Blagden Alley is a quirky network of alleys at the interior of a DC city block not far from the convention center and China Town. The carriage house had previously been used as a wood shop at the ground level with a studio apartment above. Bennett Frank McCarthy Architect, Inc. converted it into a single unit featuring a kitchen / dining area on the first floor and a living / bedroom upstairs. We have featured of few of our favorite photos including some before photos. For more information on this project or Bennett Frank McCarthy Architects, Inc. please contact them on their website here.
New mural on the alley facade pays homage to the original owner of the building, a coal oil salesman named Samuel Huntress.
