Hall Table

Being tasked with a custom project is what Baraa Woodworking LLC is all about.  This table boasts sapele an African mahogany and hand cut dovetails on the drawers and breadboard ends on the top.  This helps stabilize the wood from expanding and contracting and provides a lovely detail on the surface.  The clients are happy with the end result and therefore we are happy with the work too!

Custom Cherry Bed

Baraa Woodworking has had an appreciation for custom furniture for a long time and especially the inspired furniture of Greene & Greene.  Greene & Greene have influenced countless Arts & Crafts projects since their wholistic approach to design was created in the early 20th C.  Their unique perspective of a whole project, the cabinets, the trim, the furniture, the entire house and the feeling that emanates from this experience has had a long lasting impression on many furniture makers and designers since then.  This bed is heavily influenced by Greene & Greene with their cloud-lift design used here in the top rail of the head and footboard.  We hope this cherry bed is a comfortable and beautiful place to sleep for years to come for our clients.
