Custom Vanities From Owners Wood

A client came to us with some ideas for vanities and a pile of rough sawn, barn dried wood...and we got excited. It is a great pleasure to be able to take a clients own wood, work it down to it's finish size, then build custom cabinetry that embodies personal meaning, creating a unique, one of a kind piece of furniture.
The wood the owner brought to our shop: walnut, cherry & ash
