What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Nominator Briana Bielecki shares that she and her boyfriend fell hard for a bespoke built-in bar featured in the Home issue of our sister magazine So Rhode Island, and decided they wanted custom furniture. They turned to their neighbor Rick Black, AKA Black Forest Custom Woodworks, to build a sideboard and dining room table. “Both pieces came out gorgeous. These one-of-a-kind pieces will forever be in our home, and we could not be happier,” says Bielecki. Inspired by his father, after retiring Black opened up his workshop and retail space in the mill building. “Clients and I go back and forth to ensure the design includes their input,” says Black. Small crafts and finished pieces are also available for sale, and Black is always happy to chat to plan the furniture of your dreams.
