B.H. Davis Company - About our radius millwork

B.H. Davis Company

Radius Millwork Specialists

Mechanicsville School Building

B.H. Davis Company is a custom radius millwork shop specializing in one of a kind solid wood curved moulding and radius millwork.  Since 1973  we have been providing custom woodworking projects throughout the New England area. In 1991, upon the request of a customer, we began to manufacture curved mouldings. As interest in this specialized product has grown, so has our emphasis on radius millwork.  The demand has become so large that we now exclusively produce radius millwork, supplying customers not only from coast to coast in the US, but overseas as well.

We have over 1200 moulding knife profiles available, and custom knives can be ground to match your existing molding patterns. We can work in any wood species required and produce virtually any shaped curve needed. Using your measurements and/or tracings, we can supply curved trim for interior and exterior use to fit all new and existing windows and doors. The most common requests are for half-round, elliptical and eyebrow shapes, but full-round, quarter-round, oval and other circular styles are regularly ordered as well. Whatever the shape, we can usually supply it in one piece, ready to install.

In 2008 B.H. Davis Company relocated into the historically restored Mechanicsville School building.  Acquired by Mr. Davis in 2004 with a collapsed roof this quintessentail example of neo-classical architure required nearly two years of full time restoration work to bring it back to it's circa 1924 glory.   Upon completion of the restoration project the property was leased for several years for use as a restaurant, which provided an opportunity the local residents whom had attended school in the two classrooms to revisit old memories.  When the restaurant vacated the property at then end of 2007 Mr. Davis decided to move his curved moulding business into the building, providing all members of the staff with a gracious and unique work environment.

Photo Voltaic Solar Panels

Further, B.H. Davis Company is happy to let all our customers know that
we now are part of the Green Energy movement.  In December of 2008
Alteris Inc. (formerly Solar Wrights)  installed a 9.8 kilowatt photo voltaic solar
power system on the roof of our building.  This system will provide approximately
80% of our electrical requirements over the course of the year.  In fact, during the
summer months it will actually produce more power then we need,
sending the excess back into the power grid.

The State of Connecticut has one of the best Renewable Energy development
programs in the country.  We would like to express our gratitue to
the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) for its assistance
in the installation of this photo voltaic solar system.

The above photo was taken during the installation of the 43 panel
system.  You will notice the panels are installed at a very low
mounting angle.  Because of this they are not visible from
street level, thus leaving the appearance of our historic
building undisturbed by this modern alteration.

Beehavin' Apiary

In the spring of 2009 we arranged with Beehavin' Apiary of  Smithfield, RI
to keep several hives on our school house property.  This will help with polination
for area farms and make for some terrific local honey !
