Creating a Custom Carved Column for Cabinetry

Posted by Marketing Department on

White River specializes in the creation of custom mouldings and woodcarvings. We were approached by Busby Cabinets of Alachua, Florida about applying one of the motifs from our handcarved mouldings to the design of a custom carved cabinet leg.IMG_1645 resizedThe sides of the leg were edged with three scrolls, the barrel sides of which formed the face. Onto this face, the motif from MLD5903 (our handcarved “Running Palmette” moulding) was applied.   Transforming a linear three dimensional carved design into one which followed the contours of a scrolled cabinet leg was a challenge. The motif necessarily had to be altered...

Classically Inspired Great Room for the Contemporary Oklahoma Family

Posted by Duane Coleman on

A recent project completed using White River’s products and Design Services is the Mueggenborg Residence in Yale, OK. One of the most impressive moments in the home is the Great Room. A 19” tall crown detail visually lifts the ceiling using our Traditional (unornamented) mouldings. In the tradition of Classical architecture, this crown detail is an entablature with a tripartite composition: At the top of the architrave is our CO716 light cove. Light from this cove washes the entirety of the remaining entablature. The frieze is a simple DS1x10. This is then surmounted by the cornice, composed of panel moulds...

When You Need a Carving to be Bigger and Better!

Posted by Richard Enriquez on

White River has a wide selection of stock carvings. For most projects, we can find a stock product that works. But sometimes what we have is close, but not close enough. That is where custom products can be a perfect option.   For this project, our customer loved our Large Acanthus Finial CRV5536, but needed it to be both wider and taller. They were also looking for a full-round, instead of our half round. We increased the finial from our standard dimension of 4 ¼”h x 2 3/8”w up to a more impressive 8”h x 6”w. These dimensions are a different...
