Custom Pieces

Hairdresser Stations

Commission:

Design, Build and Install 6 Custom Hairdresser Work Stations for: the Hair Gallery and Spa in Sturbridge, MA. Moving to a New Location in Sturbridge from Southbridge, Lynda, the Owner wanted to lighten and brighten her Salon. I offered up a solid Rock Maple design, free floated off the walls with no legs and an Avonite Counter and Back Splash.

The results are below. Both She and her Customers are pleased with the new layout, color scheme as well as the Station Design. If you are in need of a Color, cut, perm, wax, massage or Tan. Please stop in and see Lynda and her wonderful staff.

Who knows what evil lurks in the walls of a 200 year old building... But a window?

All of the load bearing frames bolted in nice and tight.

The case bolts to the walls first. The the top goes on. Then the Drawers go in... Each Black Screw you see in the frame will support over 400# all by itself. We used at least 6 on each station.
