2016 Summer Newsletter | Making it Personal

Cabinetry customized to you

While we believe in the handcrafted touch when it comes to making our steel and reclaimed wood tables, nothing matches the speed and accuracy of using a CNC for making custom cabinets. That’s why in the last couple of months we’ve been busy setting up our new CNC and designing our own line of cabinets that uses multi-ply and colored laminate. We’ll give you a preview of this soon and you’ll find this style fits perfectly in midcentury and new modern homes.

We know there are a lot of choices when it comes to cabinetry, but we felt something was missing from the local market — a cabinetmaker who also understands the importance of a user-centered approach to design. So besides aesthetics, which are always important us, we feel there should be a greater focus on function while incorporating custom features that are personal to you. We achieve this by developing a deeper understanding of how you will interact with and use the space. Then we create a solution that’s tailored to your lifestyle and expresses your individual personality. These are the uniquely designed touches that will create a more meaningful user experience for you or, if you’re an architect or interior designer, your clients for years to come.

Lyell console table with glass shelf

A great table just got better

In case you missed our open studio in November, we have a couple great things to show you. The first is the updated Lyell console table featuring wine-stained redwood and a steel base. We added some class with the addition of a glass shelf and used a wheel sander on the reclaimed wood to accentuate the grain — and it turned out spectacular. Take a look at some of these detail shots.

Lyell Desk

The new Lyell desk

We also took design cues from our console table and created a five-foot wood and steel desk. The modern look of the floating top really makes the character of the reclaimed Douglas fir stand out. We then used a medium gray etch on the mild steel base which goes perfectly with the soft gray tones in the wood. Read more about the San Francisco history of the material here.

Both of these new pieces are available for purchase or can be custom-made to fit your needs. And if any of this sparks an idea for a custom project you’d like us to build, give us a call. We’d love to hear from you.
