We worked with our friends over at Recess Art Space to design and fabricate classroom furniture and display modules for their new satellite location – Assembly – Now open in downtown Brooklyn.
Assembly is a pilot program that offers arts-based diversion programs which present alternatives to incarceration and other adult sanctions for court-involved youth. When participants complete the program prosecutors may close and seal their case avoiding adult record.
The program is presented by Recess in partnership with Brooklyn Justice Initiatives and lead teaching artist Shaun Leonardo

Salvaged bowling lanes are a top quality option for counters, tables, desk tops and more. Our latest load was carefully removed from the local lanes in the famous seaside town of Old Saybrook, Ct. Lengths up to 13′ and widths up to 3.5′ are available. Inquire at Millworks@tri-lox.com for pricing and check back to see how we incorporate them into our own upcoming projects.
Spring is in bloom, and in honor of NYC Wildflower week we are collaborating with Gowanus Canal Conservancy and Brooklyn’s Future Green Studio to design and fabricate planters for the 9th street Wildflower Corridor. Volunteers use byproduct from our milling process to clad the boxes, which are then planted with a diverse palette of native wildflowers and arranged along 9th street from 2nd to 5th avenues in Brooklyn.
Solid wood shavings and dust make excellent base ingredients for urban compost. Thanks to our friends over at Myrtle Village Green in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, we are able to see our sawmill waste turn into a valuable byproduct.
