New inventory, to be shown Sunday 9/30 at Petaluma Antique fair, Sunday 10/7 at Alameda antique fair. There are two posts here, be sure to check out the photos in the second post

Here are several photos of Dining table made from Maple slab of salvaged bowling lane stock. The legs are made from steel lintels found at urban ore.

Console table, maple bowling lane top, polished steel edging, base is vintage cast iron and steel machine stand.

Top photo is vintage steel dental cabinet found at SF flea. Pine bowling lane top. Trim is american cherry, I deconstructed some 100+ yr old church pews from Oklahoma, milled the wood into trim stock.
Very unusual steel and cast iron base was originally typewriter stand. There is a lever down below that raises and lowers stand, there are wheels inside the cast iron bells at bottom, lever allows stand to be wheeled around or be stationary. Very clever. Bowling lane stock for top.

Found this antique blue box at Sacto flea. Love the patina, colors. I added hardware, legs, nice as small coffee table.
Vintage yellow steel locker above, shelves added. Another locker below, all new shelves inside. Very pretty colors, laquered.

Pieces to be shown at Petaluma, Alameda, part 2

Pair of
end tables, bowling lane stock for tops, legs are parts from victorian era doors. Bottom shelves are oak, salvaged furniture parts.
French Bench, modeled by Sascha, shop diva. Unusually large bench,
we sanded off top layer of ugly paint and wow look what we found underneath.
Next piece is kitchen island ht., on wheels, very interesting industrial cart thingie. No idea what it was originally but I really liked the curves, chipped green paint. Bowling lane top and bottom shelf.

Green tile table. Found several of these at local salvage yard. Very clever primitive fabrication, Mexico? The base is made from vintage rope spool, I took it apart, LOVE the graphics, color. This pc. has been varnished, ok for exterior use.

Got Color? Beachy blues and greens, double door cabinet.
Jelly cabinet, door is vintage sash window with very cool obscured glass. The cast iron medallion as decorative embellishment up top was found at Sacto flea, very old.
I found this steel cabinet at urban ore, very rough. Originally a fuel tank, very heavy steel, somebody welded hinges, cut and made doors, etc. We spent many hours polishing the steel then laquered. I added wheels, hardware.
