New Inventory, Custom pcs. Showing August 2 at Alameda

Been awhile since I have posted new photos, camera was broken:( Here are just a few, more to come. I will have three booths at upcoming Alameda show, lots of cool stuff. Come on out.                                 Here are two views of small cabinet with double leaded glass doors. Antique hardware, doug fir sides, top  and face frame.


 RED! Top photo vintage industrial steel cabinet as nightstand or? Live edge walnut slab pc goes nicely I think. Bottom double door cabinet all cleaned up, has shelves inside, both cabinets are on wheels
 Vintage steel medical cabinet. Replaced the top with wood.
Rusty crusty wrought iron base. Top is redwood, from salvaged picnic table. Has been sealed with exterior grade deck oil.
 Prototype of coffee display stand for Philz coffee. Vintage wooden ladder, reclaimed wood.
This maple prep island by Boos was found in an estate sale basement, was pretty crusty. Cleaned up very nice.
 Vintage hand lettered Muni sign was inspiration for this cabinet. Reclaimed wood throughout.

Bench, whites and creams
 Vintage military trunk, vietnam era as coffee table. I have found some very cool examples over the years, trunks painted as personal expressions of their owners. This one has a 60's era pop art feel to it. I cleaned it up and added a base it is now functional as a small coffee table.
Industrial steel table. Just the right size for small computer desk or?
 Nightstand, midcentury.
 Interesting diminutive locker, live edge top, nightstand?
 Typewriter stand, reimagined as endtable.
 Vintage cast iron singer base, wood top.
 Ongoing Kitchen project. I will post more photos once this is completed.

Here are some photos of new pieces that will be shown at Alameda on Sunday May 3. We are in booths N-2,15,16,17. As of thurs 4/29 all are avail. I have also posted photos of recent custom pieces below this post. Hopefully will be a great day out at the Alameda show, come on out!

Distressed turquoise color dining table, very beachy.
Industrial cabinet with drawers
Very unusual pc of salvage. I was told this was a storage device for the wax rolls of an antique Edison invention. Precursor to the Victrola. Very cool. Top is Koa.
Here are a couple of salvaged  industrial machine shop carts. Oak top above. Maple butcher block top below.


Vintage drawer unit, top is oak, trim mahogany.
Lockers, hardware added. Shelves added inside.
Steel industrial work station. New shelf added.

Here are a couple of consoles, diagonal multi colored boards include many of exotic hardwood species. Bought out the odds and ends from the estate of an amateur woodworker last year. Ran everything thru my surface planer and here is the result.

Three pieces using reclaimed maple gym floor. Coffee table with cherry stain. Small computer desk, large bench, both of these have a grey "driftwood" stain. Goes well with the polished steel.

Here are quite a few benches using more of the exotic hardwood stash mentioned above. Lengths range from 36" up to 72", some with shelves.









And a couple of the old school ones I have been making for several years. Never seem to be able to keep many benches in stock, they go so fast.


Here are a few coffee tables using that diagonal pattern. And one with a herringbone pattern. Bottom example incorporates a vintage drafting table  as base.


Here are a few photos of recent custom pieces

  Custom cabinet, distressed original paint on reclaimed wood. Antique cast iron hardware
 Custom wine cabinet. Found a couple of these really well built wine racks at the flea recently. Dont see them as often as I wish. I built this cabinet to surround rack. Top is oak, reclaimed from old dining table.
 Custom Kitchen island. Cabinet grade ply below. Top is reclaimed maple gym floor. Cherry trim, from deconstructed 100 yr old church pews. Architectural frags as legs.

 Here are some tables recently built for Philz coffee. I bought the aluminum tulip bases a few years ago from a scrapper. They were the employee lunchroom table bases from Goodyear Tire Factory, Akron, Ohio. Diagonal wood strips are reclaimed wood, most not painted, just mixing up species with texture and age providing contrast.

 Custom Maple bowling alley dining table.
 Custom planter, very large, 10' I believe was. Clients used as divider on shared driveway.
 Custom dining table, Surfaced old growth Doug Fir timbers, glued and doweled to create large slab. Matching bench. Extensions for table. Dark stain, Jacobian by minwax.



 Large Custom kitchen hutch. Cabinet is predominantly natural doug fir. I  mixed rough sawn, surfaced, distressed flooring, etc. to get contrasting textures, colors. Some distressed original paint for a touch of color.

 Desk to complement the kitchen hutch above.

 These are a couple more tables for Philz coffee, complete with many plugs for all those devices.
