Library Welcome Center

Library Welcome Center

Kent School, a private boarding school in Kent, CT was giving their old library a face-lift. Housatonic Hardwoods provided many new custom, solid wood shelf tops and other custom pieces through-out the library. All were stain matched to their other existing pieces. In addition, they wanted a welcome center which they could put at the front door of the library that would accommodate a computer work station and hide the power source. With a little coercion, we were able to convince one of our Amish furniture builders to construct this unusual piece out of oak with a curved front.  We will work with you on any special piece you are looking to create.
