This is <i>the</i> countertop shop. Founded in 1972 by Richard Brooks, the 30,000-square-foot concern--fabricating, drafting, and finishing systems are all located under one roof--employs 25 craftspeople working in wood, metal, concrete and glass. The scope of Brooks Custom’s never-outsourced capability is unrivaled. For a martini bar, the company made a three-inch-thick, 30-foot-long serpentine concrete countertop, as well as a waterfall wall inlaid with crystals. Brooks is equally equipped to produce beautiful, highly customized kitchen hoods and sinks in a variety of different metals, and will also do custom door millwork.
