Custom Work Examples
|Custom crown with an arched frieze. White River was asked to create the crown detail with special attention to the arched frieze which had to fit perfectly with the small finials.||This rangehood has layers of details and shapes, adding to the intricacy of construction. This cabinet shop regularly sends us photos of inspiration for needed elements that we design and build.|

|Handcarved ceiling medallion designed by our Design Services. The size is 4” thick by 24” diameter.||The oversized finials below are 6”w x 8”h and added elaboration to a beamed ceiling.||White Oak carvings from hand rendered drawings for the Bacarat Hotel Project in NY.|
White River reproduced this ornate rangehood from a photo. We designed the center cartouche, plumed corners and panel mouldings that connect these elements together. The main rangehood that we fabricated was installed with corbels below and an acanthus crown finishing it at the top.
Our Custom Shop hand-applied Mon Reale dough to the curved crown. While its color is different in the raw state, it will be finished to match the color of the mahogany. The crown is then cut using our standard moulding knives to create the profile.
|This custom mantel was built assembled in our custom shop. The above photo shows the detail of the large central carving flanked by ornate mouldings to the top and bottom.||We developed the eagle carving through a series of iterations, using a mix of CAD and hand drawing.|
The mantel was built by hand in the White River custom shop. Across the face, the mouldings curved toward the central carving. They tapered in both width and height, diminishing until they died into the carving. This involved a lot of hard work and careful hand shaping.
The White River Custom Shop was asked to assist in the restoration of a Drag-u-la car by building the coffin that gives the dragster its unique look. While many people may stop and say “is this possible?”, White River says “we can do it” and have it completed in 4 weeks. It’s all in the details. Say “hello” to the “Green Man”. He is located front and center as the hood ornament. Restoration work on any project precise quality controls.
The Custom Shop fabricated this beautiful piece from three stock White River Mon Reale profiles for jobsite assembly. The profiles were adapted to fit together seamlessly. White River fit the joints and patterns so the installation was easier on the job.
Our Custom Division was asked to manufacture these complex arched panelled pediments that connected the columns. With recessed panels, curved mouldings, keystones and woodcarvings, once crafted, these three pediments installed with ease.
