While the majority of our work here at Cannon Hill goes towards tables of various kinds, we’re perfectly comfortable making a wide range of furniture pieces. In fact, the Cannon Hill difference may be nowhere more apparent than in these more complex builds, like cabinets and dressers. We’re committed to executing the absolute highest quality of process and product, with only the highest quality of materials.
This was designed by the client. We contributed the design for the moulding, which was handmade, and converted her hand drawing to a CAD, and off we go! She originally thought that she wanted oak with a brown stain, but once she came to the showroom she fell for walnut. Here at Cannon Hill Woodworking specialize in dining tables, but now and then we make a unique cabinet or side table for a client that wants something they can't find elsewhere. The client loves her new piece, and we hope it sparks joy every time she enters her home.
Custom built L shaped maple desk for a client in Belmont. It may look clean and simple (and it's supposed to!) but a desk like this oil the product of over 75 emails, and measuring, and re-measuring and discussing every option for support and design in through detail. We're a full service design and build company, and that's exactly what we did here with this maple desk.
This walnut cabinet and end table was designed by a repeat client and built by Cannon Hill's Sam O'Leary. It has a live edge walnut top, locally grown and sourced, and wedge drawer fronts which are quite the opposite. Wenge is from Africa and it is extremely dense. Like working with stone! This set came out incredible. Very carefully designed for function and aesthetic, and executed with great attention to detail and skill.
This four drawer walnut dining cabinet was designed by the client and built by Cannon Hill Woodworking from milled walnut lumber. She sent us a great, simple hand drawing with specs, and we were able to convert that to a computer spec rendering from which we sourced walnut material and began to build. This is a one of a kind custom walnut furniture piece that now lives alongside a walnut dining room table that we made about a year ago. This walnut table looks great in this new construction home overlooking the ocean on the North Shore.
Custom built teak storage bench built for a new construction home with a beautiful oceanside pool and pool house. This bench is made from real European teak which is approximately two to three times the cost of some of the teak alternatives. Teak has a natural waxy nature, which repels moisture, and makes it a great option for outdoor furniture. This teak bench has a mesh bottom for storing wet towels while giving them air room to breath. There is also a bottom steel shelf for towels.
This piece was built to go in a transitional area between the pool and the house, so it will hold wet towels and bathing suits, and has a storage shelf for dry towels or slippers and sandals beneath. We chose to build from iron because of the natural water repellent properties of the wood and the beautiful grain and color. Iroko is commonly used in furniture as a teak alternative, as it's less expensive. Iroko is tricky to work with. The boards are very hard and sometimes hold so much tension that when you cut or rip them, they move slightly.
We'd previously made this client a reclaimed oak table and bench set that they love. They've been settling into their new condo and had left one section of wall bare where they wanted to do a wine cabinet with a concrete top. They couldn't find what they wanted online because it needed to be an exact size, and also furniture you buy online is just the worst. They reached out to us with ideas for a design and the general dimensions, and we did a spec drawing for them to make it all exact.
This hutch is made from rustic hickory, which is a hickory that is particularly knotty, and is very popular for wall paneling and bar/counter siding and cladding. The client reached out to us with photographs of a hutch that belonged to an old roommate. Her roommate has moved, and taken the hutch with her. She longed for another hutch to replace it. A tale as old as time. To her credit, she made this as easy for us as possible. She sent us power point (there are some images below) with all the dimensions we would need.
