New Inventory for July, Custom cabinets,Tables

 We will be at Alameda Sunday July 6. Looks to be another perfect day. We have quite a load of new pcs., picking has been very good this month.
 Here are two custom cabinets. Both for same house, used rough sawn doug fir for face frame. Put a plinth style base on the bottom one to get cabinet up to desired ht., I like the look. Antiques cast iron hardware, leaded glass doors.

Cute little baby skid. I have seen many full size skids over the years, this little one caught my eye. I took it apart ran the hardwood slats thru the planer then oiled and clearcoated top. Steel frame has been polished and waxed. Nice!

Next up this vintage drafting table. Has "Leibtz SF" label. Frame is oak, cast iron adjustment parts.

 Here are two sets of tables, taller two are end tables, others will be pushed together to make coffee table. The large 12' community table below these goes into same coffee shop- Philz Coffee about to open in berkeley on 9th st. just off Gilman. The base of the large table was fabricated using parts of old steel wine barrel stackers

 Industrial work bench, heavy steel. I see quite a few of these in 5 and 6' sizes. This one a bit more diminutive, unusual.

 Here is a set of five lockers, they are attached together as one unit. Added shelves and wheels. Saw this in the back of my neighbors truck headed to the scrap yard. Nice save!

These tables(I have two) are intriguing. HEAVY wrought iron plus copper top surfaces. From their appearance, they have seen some weather. Nice pick at the flea:)

10' bowling lane slab conference table. Very popular dark stain. Trim is walnut and oak.

Custom Armoire. Very nice antique cast iron hardware, the number "1" at top off of Ebay. Old theatre seat numbers I believe.

Here is an unusual pc., found at a flea market, several layers of paint over the vintage graphics. I sanded until I revealed the graphics. Par-T-Pak:) Probably was store display for soda. 60's?  

I bought an old cooler at Alameda last month, a BIG one. Was too far gone for restoration, but I cut it up I got 5 panels off of it. Here is what I did with the first one. (sold)
Here is a desk, base made from old pipes, etc., found it at Urban Ore was somebodies garage workbench. Cleaned many decades of grime off of it, polished the steel. I made the wood part out of another maple slab from an industrial workstation, drawer boxes are doug fir. 

These display racks were from another industrial salvage score, I have 5 of them. Cleaned this one up, painted the plywood shelves, added nice wheels to the base.
