Make Way for Woodworkers

Our fine woodworking division is moving to join our main campus in Farmington, NY. They’re making their home in our Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) building (the first complete CLT in New York State) and in the office/showroom.

The NEWwoodworks crew on CLT raising day this past January.

After a harsh winter in 2015 laid down an overabundance of snow and ice, this team’s shop collapsed. The WWII era bowstring trusses couldn’t take the heavy load. Seeing this as an opportunity to build a new space with all the right materials, as well as bring the team to the main campus, our CLT building came together.

This is the woodworking half of our CLT building before mechanicals and equipment have been loaded.

Today, it’s ducted, sprinklered, wired, and nearly full with all the tools that allow this team to create masterpieces. As they move in, and before the sawdust starts to fly, we thought you might like a sneak-peek at the progress.

We’re finishing the exterior siding of the CLT building, which is Pioneer Millworks Shou Sugi Ban Color Char. It’s nice to see the woodworkers’ cars out front.

Ed & Steve work to get the planner up and running. Nevermind the handwritten note, they know what they’re doing.

Gediminas works on the upper cabinets for the break room. Yes, our cabinet makers made their own cabinets.
