Custom Built-Ins


Each one of our built-ins are painstakingly hand crafted to match an existing piece or decor of an existing space to either make it look as it was built as an original piece or to add more of an ambiance to an existing space. The process starts with a sitting down, sometimes multiple times, with the client(s) and discussing every single detail that they want in their built-in, from the overall style all the way down to the exact hardware to be used. Most of our built-ins come with either a hand drawn sketch with a few options drawn in them for appearances or a 3-D computerized full color scaled model that can be changed easier and quicker and a whole lot cheaper virtually before construction commences.

Wood is a natural substance used for your project and as such will display its own unique characteristics. Wood has grains that will absorb stains and other finishes at different amounts, depending on orientation of the grain, types of woods used and the moisture content of the wood. As a result, variation will occur throughout the wood. LaRue Woodworking cannot be responsible for the actual degree of variation of colors and sheens that may occur in your custom project. Natural UV light and age will also affect the color and sheen of your custom piece over time.
