Domtar Welcomes Visitors with Rustic Charm

FCM Products, Inc. doesn’t always build on a monumental scale. Sometimes, we craft custom objets d’art like this beautiful sign featured inside the main entrance of the Domtar Paper Mill in Ashdown, Ark.

For this project, we used 1 1/4-inch weathered oak for the canvas and built aluminum letters to showcase the client’s name, then surrounded the entire creation with a machined aluminum bar frame.

Always attentive to detail, FCM even gave this table a great pair of legs. (Photo by FCM Products, Inc.)

We also created the support beneath the table, which is made from 1/4-inch carbon steel plate. To give it a rustic look, we applied paint to give it a special antique finish which helps set off the room.

Are you interested in having us make something special for your business? Feel free to contact us and tell us about what you’ve got in mind. Remember, if you can dream it, we can build it!
