This project was one of the first large-scale grand staircase we did here at MW.  All woodwork on and around the main staircase was custom-made in our first shop.  From the curved panels on the stair and balcony, to the individually turned and fluted balusters, to the hand-carved descending volutes, every component was painstakingly crafted from raw lumber into the final piece.  One of the more unique aspects to this project is the acoustically tuned dome under the large balcony bridge.  The dome was designed to enhance the volume of the piano and fill the space with sound.  To accomplish the curved details on the dome, we brought in Sergio, Alex’s father to advise from his decades of work with fine veneer.  Josiah also worked on this project, helping sand and detail on the balusters during installation.  This is unique in that is it the only project that saw all three generations of the Zukowski Family working on it together.
