Barrel Room Photo Shoot

Often, local companies ask for furniture to use in promotional photoshoots.  We built this custom live edge table to sit in the Barrel Room at Stonecutter Spirits.  They staged the table with drinks and other decorations.  The barrels served as a beautiful backdrop!

Door Wall and Custom Table

Our customer was seeking a one-of-a-kind conference room, where he could meet with clients in a space unlike any other one they had been in.  We covered the walls with antique doors and installed a custom steel sliding track.  When the door that is mounted to this track slides back, a large, Smart TV appears.

The table is made from an old English Elm tree.  The floor in this room was very uneven so we wanted to come up with a design that allowed the base of the table to be interesting and attractive, while the top remained level.

Display Booth for Entrepreneur

Seedsheet, a new, innovative gardening company, was in need of a unique solution for their display booths at expositions throughout the country.  They wanted to stand out, separating themselves from the many other vendors that took part in the shows.

For us, the challenge was to create a visually appealing display that accurately portrayed their company, while also allowing for easy setup and dismantling.  It must have worked!  Seedsheet was recently featured on the ABC show Shark Tank!

TEDxMiddlebury

The organizers of TEDxMiddlebury were in need of a new sign for their annual event held on the Middlebury College campus.  The event takes place once a year and in the past, the organizers had struggled to come up with a way to store the sign from year to year.

For their new sign, we designed it so that it could be taken apart and stored in a small box.  Small metal rod slides into the bottom of each letter.  When not in use, the letter can simply be lifted off the rod and placed in it’s storage container.

Cutting Boards

We try to recycle all of our scrap hard wood, turning it into serving boards.  Our serving boards have been used at special events and photoshoots throughout the region.

The ones seen here are made using quarter sawn Vermont White Oak.  High levels of tannic acid found in White Oak have made this wood prized for aging wine and spirits for centuries.  That same quality also aides in a unique reactive process that give them the rich, black, food safe color you see.  There was no stain or dye added, the fibers in the wood have actually changed colors.  This practice has been used for centuries, but has somewhat disappeared in recent times.
