Meet the Makers: Bonderite EC² Titanium Undercoat

A walk through our workshop is inspiring – not only to see the furniture passing through the stages of production, but also to witness the diverse group of makers under one roof, focused on building something of true beauty and lasting value.

Read more about our Bonderite EC² Titanium Undercoat below. We look forward to giving you an insider’s peek into the other areas of our workshop in the coming weeks.

When the surface is perfectly smooth, each piece of our furniture is submerged in a titanium solution, then surged with two megawatts of electricity to flash-fuse the aluminum with a protective titanium coating.

This bonding process creates our signature performance finish. Impervious to salt air and harsh elements, it’s one reason our furniture lasts for generations.

What do you do at McKinnon and Harris?

I have done a little of everything – I started in sanding, then moved onto packaging, followed by sculpting and powder coating. I now work in EC².

What’s your favorite piece of McKinnon and Harris furniture and why?

Our duVal Club Chair - I like the simple design.

What’s your favorite McKinnon and Harris finish color and why?

Locust Grove Lichen. I also love seeing the custom colors come through because they are always unique colors that I don’t see all of the time.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I enjoy working on cars and going to car shows as well as going to the park and going on walks.

What's your favorite thing about living in Richmond?

That there’s no shortage of restaurants and parks to explore!

If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Burgers. Burger Bach in Carytown is my favorite place to grab a burger right now.

Would you rather live in the tundra or the desert?
