What our customer had to say:

"My experience with Northwest Custom Podiums was beyond satisfactory, the communication and dedication during this project was truly exemplary."

"I received almost daily updates and photos of the hostess station's construction which was very exciting and informative."

"I searched high and low on the internet for a hostess station that was something special and not generic, and the only hostess station that caught my eye was one commissioned by Amy's on the Bay...I felt fortunate Chris and Christine could accommodate us from such a distance ."

Red Mesa will have a thermal printer and POS system on the HS.  We're just seeing how everything is going to work (It will!)  Glass on right will be on top of seating chart.

Cutting top edge, but ran out of time.

"Honey! Dinner!"

Cedar glass frame constructed

The advantage of working with NW Custom Podiums is no matter where you are in the Country, you can be involved in the desgin, construction, and decision-making every step of the way.

Red Mesa Grill decided to go with a darker stain to match their existing interior and out of 3 options, chose "Red Chestnut."  We're also making some modifications to accomodate a point of sale system not anticipated in the initial design. 

Come back often as we're wrapping it up this week!

Tully, Emily and Cassie (L to R, F to B) really have nothing to do with the hostess station.  They just wanted their picture on the website.  All 3 are "rescue dogs." 

They managed to "escape" from their kennel, and this is what I came home to March 15th.  Unbelieveably with all the carnage, they did not touch the hostess station.

("Ms. Sawyer, the dogs ate my homework....")

Back view with base molding and solid oak trim installed.

Maybe someday we will incorporate an LCD screen in front of the Hostess Station?
