April 2013 Alameda announcement, examples of new pieces
Here are several photos of new pieces. There is much much more that will be brought out to Alameda on Sunday, 4/7. Most of the inventory shown in the 3/14 post below is coming, a very nice selection. In addition, I have recently picked a huge industrial warehouse, maple top desks, also the steel fabricated shelf units shown here are just a few examples of what is avail. We will also be at the petaluma show at the end of the month, 4/28. I will post photos, etc. shortly before that date.
Here are photos of two new shelf units. The shelves are made from large rough sawn doug fir timbers, run through the planer and finely sanded. The steel frames are salvaged units picked from industrial site, very heavy steel tubing, nice.
Wine cabinet made from old wooden painters ladder, grey beadboard sides.
Chimney cabinet. Old shutter from New England. Hinges are bronze, nautical salvage.
This blogs purpose is to introduce Bryan Appleton Designs to the internet community. I am a carpenter, artist, father, and an outdoor adventure enthusiast. I love to create furniture and other objects from relics gathered at flea markets, jobsite dumpsters, the local dump, you name it! These relics include antique victorian hardware, architectural elements from old houses, unique and interesting bits of painted wood, iron, and glass. Most of what I make is functional- a cabinet, hat rack, mirror, etc. Some things just sit there and look interesting. It is my passion, and I call it art! When I am not creating, I can be found hunting the local flea markets, scrounging thru dumpsters in Pacific Heights, or at play on my mountain bike or skiing in the Sierra's.
