March 13, 2019 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
March 13, 2019 - While working at Marwood Manufacturing in Jeffersonville, IN, Charles Gorman saw potential in the hardwood being milled by the company. In large part, this was because he was fielding an increasing number of demands for finished hardwood products including tables, bar tops, countertops, and other custom furniture designs. He was also studying business and engineering at the University of Louisville, with a strong interest in entrepreneurship. Combining the opportunity at Marwood with his interest in business, Charles fine-tuned his strategic plan. This included partnering with two talented colleagues, Clayton Jackson, and Trevor Black, to launch River City Wood Design.

In operation since 2018, River City Wood Design offers custom created wooden furniture pieces to those interested in having a unique piece of furniture in their home or business. While mainly serving the Greater Louisville area, River City Wood Design has also completed projects for individuals and companies in Lexington, KY; Cincinnati, OH; Indianapolis, IN; Chicago, IL; and more. The company's website features a gallery of past projects River City Wood Design has completed. Interested customers can see multiple tables produced by River City Wood Design as well as an impressive bar top, live edge wooden kitchen countertops, and a built-in kitchenette. The unique pieces created by River City Wood Design come from the shared passion the partners have for woodworking, engineering custom designs to please their customers, and representing their beloved city of Louisville, Kentucky.

One thing that makes River City Wood Design so unique is their partnership with Marwood Manufacturing. In business since 1955, Marwood Manufacturing is a second-generation family-owned hardwood manufacturing company that specializes in sustainable and reclaimed woods. Marwood provides the River City team with a selection of the finest hardwoods on the market. This ensures each unique piece is of the highest quality. In addition to having easy access to the finest hardwoods in the world, River City Wood Design only builds its custom furniture designs out of grounded timber. This means that every custom piece of furniture crafted by River City Wood Design is made out of trees that are already on the ground, so no live trees are harmed during the building process. By being a sustainable company, River City Wood Design honors Mother Nature as much as they honor each of their customers which makes their custom built, handmade pieces even more noteworthy.
