We haven't had many posts lately. Besides doing a lot of spring paperwork for the government we have been spending a good amount of time out of the shop at job sites. These pictures are from some recent site visits of work in progress. We hope that he enjoy the newest Superior Woodcraft creations.
These photos show custom made cabinetry by Superior Woodcraft. This white oak cabinetry was finished with a hand rubbed European stain. This European stain is a plant-based oil finish, VOC-free and is completely non-toxic. Plus it looks great as well. The custom made counter tops are made from engineered concrete.
We hope that you enjoyed these photos from the field. Stay tune for additional field photos of Superior Woodcraft's cabinetry.

Superior Woodcraft and the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce recently collaborated to produce the 6th Annual Bucks Locavore~Buy-Local Networking Event. The frigid temperatures and snow masses didn't deter a record attendance of over 850 guests. On February 26, 2015, Superior Woodcraft, customer cabinet maker in Doylestown, hosted the event in their historical factory.
The event gave participants the unique opportunity to network while sampling specially prepared foods, beverages, and delicacies from over 30 of the region’s top local producers. Including Ayala Herbal Water, Bill’s Best BBQ Sauces, Blue Moon Acres, The Brown Soap Company, Bucks County Brewery, Bucks County Preserves, Buckingham Valley Vineyard, Castle Valley Mill, Crooked Eye Brewery, Confection Perfection, Doylestown Brewing Company, Doylestown Food Coop, Giggling Goat Dairy, Graziano’s Products, Flint Hill Farms, Fulper Family Farms, Hewn Spirits, Homestead Coffee Roasters, Just Food, Laurie’s Chocolates, Mainly Mushrooms, The Market at Del Val College, Nina’s Waffles, Olive Oil Etc., Perfect Day Coffee, Pig and Hen Catering, Rabbit Run Farm, Rose Bank Winery, Sweet Victory Gluten and Dairy Free Treats and Wycombe Vineyards.
The Bucks Locavore annual event is one of the largest and few of its kind in the area encouraging business networking while offering a fresh perspective on what it means to shop the local vendors. The buy-local movement in Bucks County has matured in the last several years as residents and businesses alike unify to keep dollars circulating within their own communities and, as a result, are experiencing a markedly stronger revenue growth. New to the event this year was Fulper Family Farm. Gina Davio, Sales Manager with Fulper raved,” We only began making dairy products under our family name 3 years ago and this type of event is exactly what a small, local business like ours needs to thrive!! You can't beat being at an event like this with like minded community members that know the value of small businesses, and locally grown food”
Returning to Bucks Locavore this year was Castle Valley Mill who served their delicious stoned ground grits while at a neighboring table Hewn Sprits offered tastings of New Moon moonshine. Guests who relished the grits and moonshine won’t have to visit two places as Hewn Spirits serves Castle Valley Mill’s products in their tasting room. Bucks Locavore ~Buy Local event creates new business to business opportunities in addition to providing an environment that increases consumer demand. The event explores the synergies of working together to create a situation where the sum of the parts is greater than the individual parts. Vail Garvin, CEO of Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce commented, “The Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce is proud to be encouraging our community to participate in the locavore movement. Supporting the businesses in our community is vital to a thriving regional environment.”
Host Patrick Kennedy, VP of Superior Woodcraft summed it up perfectly, "The entrepreneurial spirit at the Locavore~Buy Local event is contagious." Keep your calendars open for the 7th Annual Bucks Locavore event, slated for late February 2016.

Once you become a Superior Woodcraft client you become a member of the Superior Woodcraft family. One member of the Superior Woodcraft family just posted a Superior Woodcraft review on Houzz. Besty talks about her latest Superior Woodcraft experience or should we say, family reunion?
We just finished our third kitchen renovation with Superior Woodcraft and, once again, are absolutely thrilled with the results. We were on a tight timeline, and Michelle and Amanda were able to quickly help me choose our cabinets and counter tops so that we could have everything ready to meet our deadline. I'm still absolutely amazed that we were able to get such a beautifully detailed kitchen done in such a short time frame. Michelle had never worked with our contractor before, but they worked seamlessly together. We decided, at the last minute, to renovate the master bath as well and Superior was
able to design and build a custom double vanity, mirror and storage cabinet in record time. The installers that Superior use are the best, every little detail is done to perfection. Can't thank them enough for making what could have been a very stressful couple of months completely manageable. Read review on Houzz
Betsy, we are glad that everything worked out well for you. The entire Superior Woodcraft team is thrilled that Superior Woodcraft brought beauty, utility and harmony into your family's home and lives.

Since its inception in 2010, the Bucks Locavore ~ Buy Local Event has introduced thousands of people to the buy local movement. The 6th annual event, to be held at the end of the February will be no exception. Bucks Locavore ~ Buy Local offers guests a unique combination of business networking while sampling the remarkable goods from local independent food and beverage producers. The buy local movement is essential to the success of a local, sustainable supply chain which results in a stronger local economy supporting schools, local infrastructures and public assets. What makes The Bucks Locavore~ Buy Local event even more invaluable is that it isn’t just a networking event for the attendees, it provides a rare opportunity for the producers to connect with each other and form new alliances.
Superior Woodcraft, award winning cabinet maker in Doylestown, Pa, is the annual host of the event. This year Superior Woodcraft is teaming up with the Central BucksChamber of Commerce and is expecting attendance of over five hundred people and over thirty food and beverage vendors.
|(L-R: Laurie, Trevor, Jennifer, Patrick)|
Patrick M. Kennedy, Vice President of Superior Woodcraft created the idea of this event to keep the buy local movement strong and in the forefront of the public eye. Patrick’s forward thinking style is infectious as he comments, “Many people think of the Bucks Locavore~Buy Local event as a business networking event. This event is much more – it is an experience. It’s a business incubator. Many business relationships and new products have been created from the local companies that participate in this experience. They start collaborating and next thing you know business relationships are formed and new products are developed. Real business and economic growth is being created. A perfect example is the business relationship that developed between Laurie’s Chocolates, Doylestown Brewing, Homestead Coffee and Rose Bank Winery.”
Patrick is referring to is the new relationships Laurie Douglass from Laurie’s Chocolates has cultivated as a result of participating in Bucks Locavore~Buy Local. The award winning chocolatier connected with Joe Modesetine, owner of Doylestown Brewery. The result is Tavern Toffee, a delectable version of Laurie’s butter crunch toffee infused with the brewery’s smooth R5 Lager. This mouthwatering combination of lager, sourdough pretzels, salted almonds and pretzels will be featured at Doylestown Brewery slated to open soon in the PA Marketplace on South Main Street in Doylestown. Jennifer Estes, Brand Manager from Doylestown Brewery is looking forward to returning as a participant. Jennifer commented, “We are proud to participate in Bucks Locavore because Doylestown Brewing Company believes creating a sense of community among business owners is vital to keeping Doylestown a thriving retail/hospitality destination. We will support that effort in every way we can and this is a perfect event to connect and share ideas with our community business leaders.".
The Tavern Toffee isn’t the only marvelous Laurie’s Chocolate product resulting from Bucks Locavore~ Buy Local. Laurie’s offers truffles crafted with robust coffee from Homestead Coffee Roasters, pure chocolate, and rich cream. Trevor Lewis from Homestead Coffee
marketing efforts. Trevor says, “Its great strengthening business relationships in Doylestown, meeting other business owners. This event attracts so many people the face to face is invaluable”.
Laurie is looking forward to returning to the event in February she mentions: “The fact I don’t have a retail location its great visibility”. Laurie’s Chocolate’s is sold in many local retailers visit her website www.laurieschocolates.com for details. This year at Bucks Locavore~ Buy Local, Laurie will be unveiling her latest creation, Orange Chocolate Port Truffle. Creamy chocolate immersed with Orange Port Wine from Newtown’s Rose Bank Winery. Yet another successful partnership resulting from this event. If you want to be the first to try Laurie’s latest masterpiece you will have to attend BucksLocavore~ Buy Local.
