Here are some of our featured projects that we have created in the shop. We focus on creating unique and original pieces with a focus on sentimental value and nostalgia.
Pop UP Bar Truck
This is a custom designed pop up bar truck for a local caterer. Not only was the design and creation of it a significant challenge, it is also the largest scale project to date for Pierce's Workshop. We worked closely with the client ensuring every detail and request was met. The design of the truck allows for the 3 walls to easily fold down in sequence without the need for multiple people or brute strength.
The exterior of the walls is 100% covered with whiskey barrel wood, The back splash of the bar is pure copper, and the bar top is a reclaimed piece of live edge oak.
Prohibition Barrel Wine Rack
This wine rack was custom created at the request of a client. It was hand made made using a vintage barrel dating back to the 1920's. This particular barrel was recovered from an old wine cellar that was established in Massachusetts in the early 1900's. The family used these barrels straight through the prohibition to make their own supply. The last known dump date was 6/6/1944.This piece is not only unique it is absolutely saturated with American History and DRIPPING with conversation potential.
No modern materials were used in its construction (except screws)
The Phoenix Table
"Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion."
In 2015 a fellow firefighter and his family lost their home, an 1800's farm house with an attached barn as well as everything they owned to a fire. In order to preserve what we could of the house we salvaged any usable material we could find in what was left including floors, and structural components.
The table and bench below were made for the family using the lumber that was literally pulled from the ashes of their former home. Now they are located in the new home that was built on the same spot as the one they lost.
Barrel Stave Beer Menu
This picture sequence shows the steps in the process of building the beer menu that is hanging over the bar at Jack's Abby Craft Lagers in Framingham Massachusetts. It was designed and built by Pierce's Workshop to be a dynamic (interchangeable) beer menu for their new location.
The sign was made using barrels staves that once constructed the barrels that Jack's Abby Craft Lagers used to brew their signature "Framinghammer" beer as well as other barrel aged brews. The combination of Rustic and Industrial aesthetics mixed with the nostalgic value of the materials used really made this a one of a kind piece that we are proud of.
Refrigerated Whiskeybarrel kegerator
The Refrigerated Kegerator was a project that started about the time that the shop opened. After a year of research and development this model was produced. It is a standard 53gallon white oak barrel that is outfitted with a double tap home brew keg set up. It will hold two home brew kegs and cools to 32 degrees within 20 minutes. The interior is sealed and insulated to prevent cold air loss, and the cabinet door allows for easy replacement of kegs and CO2. It can be customized to fit Half barrel (50L) or Tall quarter barrels (30L). It also has a 2 year parts warranty.
