Here are some of the new pieces that will be shown Sunday at Alameda Flea, booths N-2,15. This first cabinet has a vintage "Open, Antiques" sign that I found in a collective in Coos Bay, oregon. Some very cool hardware including a doorknob backplate I made from bronze plate- "TOWNSEND", from San Francisco picker.
This cabinet has doors made from antique glass panels found at the Sacto flea a few months back.
Console made last month, decorative elements salvaged from antique victorian furniture. Carved black walnut.
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.
