What you see here is a 12' X 4' oval table constructed with a custom color solid surface (Corian) material. It is supported on the right by a chrome column and hung on the left side with aircraft cable. The oval shape matches a tile inlay in the floor and the lighting cutout in the ceiling. It is the focus of a corporate cafeteria where it is used for displaying the days specials.

Complete Lobby Restoration 120 Greenwich
This is a section of a building lobby in the area of the WTC. Used as a staging area for first responders in the months after 9/11, the place was in major disrepair. With wall panels damaged or destroyed, the place was slated for a redesign. FRW refinished all of the existing paneling and used veneered Sonotube to encapsulate round columns. The transition was miraculous. They have a new lobby for the cost of restoration!
A Simple Kiosk
After the original build out of new office space is complete and the settling in process begins, no matter how carefully planned, through growth or discovery additions will be necessary. This image is of a custom designed kiosk constructed to house a touch screen monitor and printer. Two things that were not in use when the space was originally designed!
Custom Molding Restoration
In the course of restoring landmarked buildings throughout New York City and Brooklyn moldings and trim are often lost, destroyed, or missing for various reasons. These specially made moldings cannot be ordered from todays lumber yards for many reasons. The milling knives they were originally cut with no longer exist, the dimensions of the wood used are no longer available and/or the moldings were often enough custom crafted by a tradesman at the time of construction. FRW can duplicate a wide range of impossible to get moldings in large or small quantity.
The section of handrail at right was created using the piece at left as a sample. It is made with light and darker strips of 1/4" walnut glued together for an unusual effect. While not very long in length it was made for a small section of a very contemporary railing in a multi million dollar TriBeca condo that left an unsightly gap in an otherwise gorgeous space. It was so distracting that in the course of selling, the home had no offers in the asking price range until it was replaced.... Within a week of completing the installation, the space went into contract.
