We have a special passion for custom-made furniture and woodwork. 

At J Moncton CFC, we love working with our clients to meet their unique needs. Below are just a few examples of that work -- see our blog for more. 

 

Custom Standing Desk

This contemporary trestle-style desk adjusts in height from 30” to 48” by simply rotating the cast iron handwheel. It was constructed for a client who preferred to stand for work most of the time, allowing for precise height adjustment without any buttons or cords. The deep brown color of walnut contrasts with the abundance of light colored wood already in the home. 

 

The lifting mechanism consists of a pair of custom-manufactured screw jacks embedded within each leg of the desk, connected by a steel rod. The outer leg conceals the hardware and slides along the inner leg which houses the screw jacks.

This view from below the desk top shows the bolts – not screws - that connect the legs to the upper supports and the upper supports to the top. This desk can be completely broken down into its main components for transport

CUSTOM BOOKSHELF

Filling the angled space between the front wall and chimney chute, this large solid cherry bookcase presides over the great room of this nineteen fifties house. Though it is firmly anchored to the wall behind it, this piece stands out as furniture rather than a built-in and compliments the mid-century décor of the home.

The hand-cut, half-blind dovetails on the stationary base are not necessary from a purely structural standpoint, but add a unique stylistic element.

 

Anniversary Coffee Table

This walnut coffee table was built as an anniversary gift from husband to wife. Each pair of corner legs form an orthogonal V to signify the fifth, or “wood”, anniversary.

 

White Oak Ships Ladder

This ladder was built to access the loft space of this newly renovated home. Designed at a 69 degree angle from the floor with the rail set 7” off the side, it provides a solid, comfortable staircase in a small space. 

 

Precision joinery defines high quality woodwork

The base of the baluster is precisely socketed into a groove cut into the side of the ladder and machine bolted into tee nuts trapped in between layers of wood.

The stairs and sides are joined with a traditional mortise & tenon.
