Handmade furniture from reclaimed wood has taken a new twist at 60 bragg Hill. Our specification called for four simple wood vanity bases for the various bathrooms in our home. Rather than buying new, we turned to Wolfe and Hale, a local thrid generation custom millwork and cabinetry shop. Bob and Tom Hale worked closely with our architect, Matthew Moger to find the right wood for the vanities that faithfully represent the old barn look we saught. What they found was truly authentic.
Bob and Tom Hale researched and obtained very old oak beams with a storied local history 300 years in the making. For the first 200 years the beams had originally been used in a local Pannsylvania barn not far from Bragg Hill. A century ago, this barn was raized and the wood repurposed into timberframes for a local Wynnewood, PA home. Recently, that home was dissambeled for new construction liberating the old oak beams once again. Sustainability at it finest.
