Charleston Forge and Rooster's Wood-Fired Grill

Jeff Greer - Saturday, February 15, 2014

When the second location of Roosters Wood-Fired Grill in Uptown Charlotte was in the planning stages, it was part of the design theme to use as many local resources as possible. Charleston Forge and Wright Table, among other local artisans and manufacturers, were brought together to light, decorate and create for this Charlotte treasure.

Over the last few months, the Rooster's Team, designer Holly Carter, and Charleston Forge, have worked together from concept to install to create metal forged lighting systems (a new, yet very successful venture), and a quite impressively sized wine rack for the restaurants impressive wine selection.

Rooster's, the brainchild of Chef Jim Nobel (of Nobel's Restaurant in High Point, NC) and team, provides upscale mouth watering, reasonably priced fair, in a beautiful atmosphere for the Charlotte area. Imagine walking off the streets of the bustling large city of Charlotte, most often thought of as the banking capital of the southeast, into a warmly lit restaurant filled with wooden tables, hand-forged metals, and beautiful design; all created and welded by the hands of locals with a distinctly upscale southern appeal.

Solid Steel and Solid Wood Tops. Beautiful.

Art Barber - Thursday, September 06, 2012
Another batch of gorgeous Wormy Maple table tops headed for the finish line.


 

Our Watson Collection is what Charleston Forge is all about.

We make high-quality furniture, and we make it here in the United States.


We hand forge and build our frames using domestically made solid steel.

The tops are made to order, using 2¼-inch thick solid Wormy Maple.

We hand stain and finish the tops right here in our Boone, North Carolina factory.

It's a multi-step process that brings out the true beauty of the wood.

The result? We think the product speaks for itself. See for yourself.
