Hello to all. A lot has happened in the last month since I posted. Two weeks ago I had a very bad accident involving my table saw and my left-hand, resulting in surgery. Fortunately, I will still be able to create furniture using this hand and 4 1/2 of my fingers :-) I am incredibly grateful, it could've been so much worse. I have had several weeks now of recovery time and fortunately I am going to be able to attend this upcoming Alameda show. Several friends have offered to help me unload and load. So we're going to be there. The weather's going to be great, and it should not be too crowded due to being a holiday weekend. Come on out. As usual we will be in row N, booths n-15 thru 18. I am continuing to bring out my architectural treasures, etc. and will have some very nice new pieces and smalls.
As we move into fall, please remember that this traditionally is my busiest time of the year. So for all of you who would like to order pieces to be ready by the holidays it's never too early to get in the queue.

Greetings to all. I spent 1.5 weeks in July traveling throughout Oregon, part vacation part roadtrip in search of a location to move to. As previously mentioned here my lease expires early in 2017 and I will be relocating myself and my furniture making business. No decisions yet but Portland area looking good, huge supply of warehouses and demand for my "look" in furniture makes this area ideal. Here are a few new pieces I built this past week for sundays upcoming show. As usual, will be in row N, booths 15-18 this time, LOTS of inventory. I also have some nice industrial pieces I picked up this past month will post more photos by tomorrow am.

It has been a busy month here. I have been working on several large commercial projects. Below are a few photos of these pieces. At Alameda tomorrow I will have four full booths of furniture, smalls, vintage and antique items. I have been busy processing more of the "project" pieces from recently purchased estate. I will post a few of these also. Should be a great show, come on out! Booths n-15,16,17,18

Alameda Antique fair scheduled for sunday 3/6 has been rescheduled, new date is next Sunday, 3/13. Weather permitting we will be there, 4 full booths of furniture plus more select material from my warehouse. As mentioned previously, I am leaving warehouse in one year, so am beginning to bring to Alameda my collection of architectural salvage and other interesting objects. All are welcome to visit and pick my warehouse, open by appt., contact Bryan at 415 336 2784.
First cabinet. I have a collection of over 100 leaded glass doors, makes sense to use up as many as possible. Most of my glass comes from my Kansas connection, however these came from local salvage yard. Tulips? Faceframe includes some frags I acquired from SF victorian gate that I deconstructed. The pale blue/green top and side wood is new for me, just bought a large load it came from recently deconstructed Ross, Ca. house. Antique cast iron hardware.
Cabinet 2. These glass panels from Kansas connection:) The hinges here I believe came from old trunks? Cast iron, I have been collecting them for years, they are very cool.Cabinet 3. Some of the glass panels have beveled pieces of glass. Very cool. This cabinet has some frags on the faceframe that are solid cast zinc, was told they came from pre civil war era St Louis commercial building. Beautiful antique cast iron hardware. SOLD
Recently bought several steel dressers from estate of a SF antique dealer, there are two of them here. Polished. These are the last of them.
|From same estate the dressers came from. Did not have original pulls so I improvised with these antique white porcelain doorknobs. Polished. SOLD|
|Redwood planters, recently installed custom order.|
