    The Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship needed unique pieces that would warm up our creative space. We decided to install hanging wooden swings inside the space as well as thick shelving in our kitchen area. Run of the Mill produced the shelves and gorgeous wood seats for the swings - they are a favorite feature for everyone that comes to the Center. They also provided wood for many of the attractive wood features on the first floor of the Hubbard Building where our Center is housed. John has been just wonderful to work with and we couldn't be happier!!

    Run of the Mill created a custom 3.5" thick live-edge walnut mantel for my fireplace transforming it from an eyesore to a focal point my family is proud of. The Run of the Mill team worked closely with me to determine my unique needs and specifications, and even modified the mantel to incorporate a custom metal mounting bracket. The experience of working with the Run of the Mill team was as great as the final product. It's clear each member of the team has a passion for their craft and the rare pieces they create. They're quick too.
