We make beautiful furniture for retail spaces. If you have a retail space and are looking for furniture that is itself a work of art, you have come to the right place. We make can make bookcases, desks, shelves, stands, racks, and tables of any configuration, function, shape, style, and size to fit your unique space.
Typically large commercial remodel or new construction projects go mostly with what's known as "commercial grade" furniture and millwork vendors. This means "you get what you get and you don't get upset". This make sense, of course. If you need to buy 40 tables for a large dining room, or 160 chairs, you can't have every piece be fine handmade furniture. Cannon Hill Woodworking is here for that accent piece or two, for that conference table, or private dining space, or welcome area table that you want people to see and go "Wow".
Elm is gorgeous. This elm slab is even more beautiful in person than it is in photos. Note, this is not the natural color of elm. Elm is a much lighter brown, and there are typically some vert subtle burnt orange undertones throughout. The slabs are clean, and the grain is really captivating without being over the top. The look of an elm slab will never get old. In this case, the client wanted a large live edge table, and they wanted to a specific dark color, but walnut was not quite the right color, and also walnut slabs are quire expensive.
A designer with whom we have completed many successful projects told us they wanted a new conference table top for their office on the North Shore. They had an old hospital gurney base that they wanted to use, but they wanted to remove the existing top and make a live edge oak top. We sourced to fourteen foot long slabs from Western MA, cut them each in half, kiln dried them in our shop's kiln, and then created this quadruple book match table top.
It's really nice making a table that you know is going to be used by children who are learning and engaging with nature. This ten foot red oak slab table is going to be home to art projects, gardening lessons, and even math and english lessons when the teacher just want to get out of the classroom. This local charter elementary school in Dorchester was given a grant for the greenhouse and then a subsequent grant for the table. Zack, the founder of Cannon Hill Woodworking, spent 2 years as an elementary school teacher before becoming a carpenter, so this project was near and dear to him.
These are seven teak tables we made for a restaurant that is being built in Revere, overlooking the water. Four of the tables are dining height and three are coffee table height. As with many of our projects, on these bases we started with a photograph and we came up with specs and built the bases custom for our clients. These bases have a black zinc powder coat to ensure the most rust proof coating available for seaside furniture.
We are a small custom woodworking company, but we do have a lot of experience in concrete countertops and bar tops. Typically, we take on concrete projects on a case by case basis, and during water climate months. This bar top is 36 feet long and 30 inches wide. It was built in six pieces. At the seams we installed black steel per the clients' request. It's going in a new tap room in Harvard, MA. When they're done with the construction, and are open for business, we'll upload finished photographs! We installed the bar top ourselves.
Believe it or not, this project of 8 tables and 16 benches for Downeast Cider was our very first project at Cannon Hill and it was done on a major budget. A friend of ours works at Downeast and connected us to their tap room manager who wanted all new tables for the taproom to replace a bunch of rickety old tables that came in boxes from overseas.
