One of the advantages of working with us here at Cannon Hill is that when we say custom, we mean custom. Each project we do is a true one-off, designed, built, and delivered according to the specific requirements of each client and each home. That means you won’t need to compromise on size or aesthetics, because our holistic furniture design process takes every stage from drawing to delivery into account.
This project was a fun departure and an opportunity to build for a type of space that we don’t often see. Our client was finishing out his basement with a full bar and a total redesign set to give the House of Blues a run for its money. Once we had some inspiration images in hand, we set about planning the build and ensuring that our finished product would look at home in the tricked-out new basement.
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 project came to us from an awesome client who also happens to be an interior design professional remodeling her own kitchen and living room. Here at Cannon Hill Woodworking, some of us come from a professional remodeling background, but remodel is not what we do as a group because we are very much set up as a workshop operation. We make furniture for the most part. That being said, we do build accent pieces and install them. We've done many bar tops and live edge shelves and walnut kitchen island tops for example.
