Crafting a NEWT Creation

The work of building a NEWT custom product is intense, complex, and very rewarding,
for our customers and us.

From consultation and design development,
to wood selection, templating, sourcing, material prep, milling, assembling, sealing, and finishing, we are hands-on all the way to delivery of beautiful pieces. 

It all starts with questions!

This is why NEWT is the choice of top Connecticut kitchen designers, contractors, and homeowners.
Here are some photos of the process that leads to beautiful results:

SOURCING

New, reclaimed or antique?From a local forest or barn?
From the tropics or America?
From long ago or far away?
From conifer or deciduous?

We have the best selection of wood in the East:  Give an old tree an encore, or a new tree a debut!  All wood is good! 

CHOOSING

Classic, colorful, or crazy grain?
Blonde, Red, Brunette? Silver Gray?
Rough or Smooth? Glossy or Matte?
Knots…or not knots?
History or Mystery?
What will take your interest, grab your attention, or complement your china?

What’s good about wood is variability of colors, grains, features and more.
Here’s a fraction of what we offer. 

And we’ll put up new pictures soon, but coming in to see and touch the woods is key to your satisfactory choice.   

 

 

 

 

 

COLORS & GRAINS

How wild or subtle can you get? The opportunities are as diverse as nature itself, from solid to ethereal.

We get great joy from discovering a ‘treesure’ and having a customer fall in love with it.  Come take a look. 

 

SHAPES 

Depending on placement, purpose, and your tastes, a top can have a variety of form options.

Traditional to unique, we’ll make almost any shape you can imagine. Or you can go natural…

 

 

 

…by choosing a whole or partial tree slab or plank that has a ‘live’ or uncut edge.
These beauties can showcase bark, burls, branch bases and more to reveal inner sylvan life. The mystery and magic of nature is on full display with these specimens.  

 

 

Here are some images from our millwork and process stages. Enjoy!
