Creative and Durable Office Appointments
And Women’s Center
“Jackson Woodworks was commissioned in 1992 to design and build lasting interior cabinetry for the newly renovated Reading Birth and Women’s Center, Reading, PA.
High quality, sturdy, commodious and hand finished cabinets and closets were made to specification for offices, labs and birthing areas.
Since the inception of business in 1981, there have been no calls for repairs or to refinish anything by John C. Jackson, a one-man-shop AKA Jackson Woodworks.”
Dean Emeritus Peter F. Krogh office, Edmund Walsh Intercultural Center,
“Cousin Peter needed furnishings to dot his upper floor retirement office so he called Cousin Johnny to bat around a few ideas.
What was jointly decided upon would include the mother of all Johnny hanging shelves in black walnut, a copper top dry bar made of curly maple with mirror and Sub Zero fridge, oak latticeworks embedded in the hallway picture window frame [to filter out any undesirables] and, finally, a nicely crafted pair of ash bi-fold doors designed expressly for those “private moments” in the confines of the storage room. Ah yes, Washington!”
Dental Office Reception Desk
“A really good job installed at a prime location on Penn Avenue two blocks away from the Jackson Woodworks home base at 118 Obold Street, West Reading, PA, this monster black walnut reception desk accommodates three lovely, smiling receptionists [with gleaming straight teeth!] at Barrer and White Orthodontists. A fun, well designed thing to make and adaptable to any future requirements, this edifice will last until Jim Barrer’s great grand kids need braces and probably well beyond Jim Barrer himself!
“The big walnut reception desk was a tour de force using book matched 8/4” [2 inch thick] black walnut boards cut at Ziegler’s Sawmill in Zion, PA in 1970 and schlepped to and from the various Jackson Woodworks locations until re-sawed into something recognizable in 2003 and 2004.”
