Bassinet Boatworks





We craft the custom barstools.
You craft their unique story.

We've restored antique boats. We've built boats from scratch. Now we're launching handcrafted barstools inspired by classic yachts. The best part is you can give it some real soul with your boat's name and hailing port, custom-carved and hand-gilded into the transom.

Of course it doesn't have to be a boat's name, it could be your kid's name, your dog's name, or your college nick name. It could even be
a monogram or a series of poetic words. The truth is, it all looks good carved in the mahogany transoms of our custom barstools. 


How long does it take? 

How are they built?

We make two versions of our barstools -a high back and a low back - and each one is custom made to order. Once you approve the design, it'll take us somewhere between six to eight weeks to deliver them.

We build our barstools like a custom wooden boat, with responsibly harvested mahogany and maple strip-built seats, a traditional yacht "wineglass transom." We'll help you design the look of the names - and if you'd like - we'll even help generate some name ideas. We use a state-of-the-art CNC carving system to engrave your unique names on the transom outside, along with our Bassinet Boatworks insignia on the transom inside. As all this woodworking is going on our metal fabrication shop is hand-bending, and welding your custom legs so they fit perfectly beneath your bar or center island. Then we powder coat the legs with a weather-proof, super hard finish. Each barstool receives several coats of semi-gloss yacht spar varnish. Finally, we hand-gild the carved lettering and insignia.
