Union Lofts, the latest from the Windmill Development Group is opening their sales centre this coming Saturday, November 17th, and we will be there. Union will be a church-turned-living space located at 243 Perth avenue in the Junction Triangle. While construction on the lofts hasn’t begun yet, part of the church interior has been beautifully transformed by Studio Kantelberg. We had the honour of collaborating with Andrea Kantelberg on the design of an 11′-1″ American Elm communal table that will serve as a feature of the space. This table is especially important to us because of its origin.
The top: comes from Wychwood Park. A very good friend of ours named Robert Green slabbed the fallen Elm on site for us about two years ago. Once we secured the commission, we called Rob up who now works with a new crew of talented woodworkers P & P Custom Living to see if he would work with us on the project. He agreed. It is very nice to be working with Rob again, and to see him involved in bringing the piece to completion
The bow tie joints: are CNC milled from a mahogany stair tread that we reclaimed from a farm house in Caledon. They were milled, yes, but they were installed the old fashioned way.
The legs: are bright bright purple. A big thanks to Ben Lowry ( on the development side) and to Andrea for supporting the idea of a leg modelled after an old set of colorful saw horses we use in our shop. We’ve wanted to do this for a long time.
See below for some images of the making of the table – including one shot of the original elm tree before it fell. Stay tuned for more of the completed piece, and, please email us at email@example.com for information about our design + build services.
