River City Wood Design recently completed work for a high-profile Salon in New York City. The cabinets and reception desk were all crafted using Reclaimed White Oak from the 1792 Barton distillery that collapsed in July of 2018. The wood was cleaned up but still has a little bit of that rustic reclaimed feel. The nail holes were also preserved instead of filled, further creating the rustic design that the customer wanted to maintain.
The 26-foot counter-top was designed to flow evenly along the wall using Live Edge Ambrosia Maple slabs, designed using wood from the same log to create a consistent flow. The customer wanted a light-colored wood species that was similar in color to the White Oak and by using Maple the craftsmen were able to create that look.
