The Walnut Bar

Winner of the Cabinet Makers Association’s 2016 Wood Diamond Award

Our friends at Richelieu, where we often shop for hardware for projects, gave our name to a builder who was new to the modern style. He was looking for a company who could handle design and construction for this project, and we were happy to help, of course.

Our assignment with the Wesley project was to create an elaborate bar and cabinetry for the adjacent living area. The bar design was inspired by a bar in a Los Angeles hotel that the homeowner liked; while we might have enjoyed a field trip to check out the LA bar in person, we took the photos provided by the homeowner and ran with those as inspiration.

As you’ll see in the photos, we did grain-matching throughout the bar — a process that is always complex but gratifying when the work is complete.

The stone fireplace surround in the living area is a thing of beauty, and we were pleased to take on the challenge of creating shelving that would showcase it.

Along with the fun of the work, we made new friends in the process; the builder and homeowner were great collaborators.
