While the L-shaped desk was rather straight forward in design, as we've made our fair share, the biggest challenge came with the conference room table, as our client had a goal of the table be capable of expanding by two feet, but wanted to achieve the extra length without having to move the legs of the table at all.
The secret in designing this particular piece of furniture is found in the sub-top of the table, which is directly attached to the legs.
Within the sub-top, we engineered and installed a cog mechanism that allowed the two pieces of the table to expand and contract from its center to fit the leaf in between the two halves, without having to move the legs of the table itself.
For this project, the owner wanted an elegant, old world style vibe within the space, so we began by giving the bar itself an old English pub feel.
To further achieve the overall concept, we chose dark, rich finishes for the wood that, while it was made of Clear Soft Maple, it was stained to match the Cherry species.
At this point in the process, our client was able to get a visual representation of what we intended to do, and also make any desired changes to the project as a whole.
Once the drawings were rendered, we presented our finals plans to our client alongside a budget that detailed exactly what the project would cost.
This particular project was an awesome learning experience as much as anything else, as most people are not privy to the fact that we have domestic hardwoods with superb weathering and longevity characteristics that are comparable to the characteristics of teak or mahogany.

We were recently challenged with finding design solutions that fit a 2,000 bottle capacity wine room into small space inside of a home, while also delivering the quality and custom feel that Fuller Architectural Hardwoods is known for.
With that premise in mind, we decided on an old-world, distressed feel for the wine room with terra-cotta tile on the floor, a radius grotto Italian ceiling with reflected light on the ceiling itself.
All of the walls are also well-insulated and the chilling unit is properly sized for the room.
The unique storage solution for the bottles provides our client access to the label of the wine while maintaining the quality of the cork; furthermore, each cabinet has a special place for a personal note which can detail where you purchased the wine, what date, what you paid, and maybe even a favorite memory or any other pertinent information you would like to include alongside each bottle of wine.
A "wine of the day" cabinet, as well as special storage for all of your magnums, can be seen by onlooking guests from outside the wine room, through an insulated and etched glass window.
We constructed a wine preparation cabinet with drawers, doors and extra shelving for storing your glasses, wine keys, labels and anything else you may need in order to prepare your wine so that you may bring it out to your guests.
