Bending Wood for A Banister Worth Holding On To.

A few years back Craftworks worked on an amazing residential project in West Vancouver. Working with Bakken Construction (General Contractor), we had the opportunity to manage all of the finishing end trades and carried out a large portion of the finishing carpentry on a luxury home.  This was an amazing project in that we had little to no restrictions on budgets – in my experience, this is rare.
The grand foyer of the house is a great example of the design and craftsmanship coming together in showcasing a large space, if you paid attention to all of the details, you could tell that  it was done with a great deal of care and attention (sparing no expense). We’re talking about hand-cut pieces of stone, venetian plaster, plaster crown detailing copper leaf, and then some.
