The first couple of photos here show a massive dining table, 10 feet long by 45" wide. This table was used by a commercial construction company in their woodshop for many decades, and it looked like it when we got it. Several days with a belt sander revealed a beautiful surface, 4 x 12 doug fir beams with much character. Finished with several coats of spar varnish, this table could be placed outside year round. The second table shown is a vintage farmhouse style dining table, about 7 feet by 40", also finished with spar varnish. Both tables will be shown beginning at Petaluma show.

Here are a couple of double door cabinets. I recently purchased a large lot of vintage leaded glass doors from my midwest supplier, the second cabinet below has a nice pair of these.

Vintage steel cabinet. I have been collecting quite a bit of industrial salvage recently, and will be showing several pieces made in the industrial look.

Very cute, petite cabinet found at local flea. Label says it all, originally a piece from a scientific lab, I gutted the equipment, polished cast iron legs and the aluminum frame, made some shelves and painted with several coats of enamel.

Found this dresser at local flea, really rough shape when I got it. Square nail construction, very old. The drawers were shot, so I gutted it and started over. New interior with shelves and added doors, nice small storage cabinet for pwder room or???
