This was an incredible build. The bed was completely custom designed with the client after a home visit and multiple phone calls and finally a CAD. There is a full cabinet construction on the inside to allow for two heavy solid maple sliding drawers. The nightstands have drawers and are essentially "floating". Headboard is mounted to the wall for extra support. The bed is rock solid. 10 people could jump up and down on the platform. It has a dark espresso stain which has a hint of deep deep purple, and three coats of a poly whey finish which is very dull and almost naked.
These boards were in ROUGH shape when we got out hands on them. We really had to go salvage yard deep sea diving to find them. They got a heavy sand and and lot of love so that they're smooth to the touch and splinter free. There were several rounds of samples sent to the client. The top is flat, though every board has a little texture and movement that you hope for and expect out of reclaimed materials (while still being smooth to the fingertips). There is no tint or stain on this table- just a clear lacquer spray. The turned legs are also pine, and we stained them to match the top.
This is an 8 x 8 pine beam that we found at a salvage yard and finished into a nice floating mantle. We built the bracket for the mantle from oak, and installed it and scribed it to the stone fireplace. Cannon Hill is capable of really nice white glove install work as well. When the mantle is up, it looks like it is completely floating and it's rock solid. Still has the feel and look of reclaimed, but it's smooth to the touch. A perfect finish.
This was a first for us! The wood for this pine table came straight from the floors of this recently remodeled and historic home in Boston’s North End. When the client had the demolition done on the interior space, opening up floors and ceilings to move staircases, they had the foresight to set aside some beautiful old pine boards for a table top.
