New Inventory, Some custom pieces, Alameda

Apologies to all who looked for us at Petaluma last Sunday. The early morning rain necessitated a last minute cancellation, not good for the furniture! Fortunately the weather forecast for this Sundays upcoming show at Alameda is for a balmy 70 degrees, a welcome respite from this weeks high temps! Come on out and enjoy, should be a beautiful day. We will be in the usual spot- N-2 and 15 right across from the food vendors.
 Vintage steel industrial pc., beautiful colors
Industrial medical or dental pc., on wheels

Vintage steel locker found at salvage yard with non-functioning door, no problem, made one! Shelves added. On wheels

 Vintage steel industrial pc. from machine shop auction. Polished, shelf added.
Polished steel cart, shelf added

 I find these steel stands occasionally at salvage yards, think was sink base. New top of colorful wood strips.
 Benches, very popular, reclaimed wood.

A couple months back I posted a photo of these pcs., custom bathroom suite, client sent me this photo of  completed job. Very nice!

 Local SF burger house wanted to enclose their outside seating area with planters and barriers in between. This set up designed to be easily disassembled daily. Planters on wheels.
 Large computer desk, custom. Polished steel base fabricated, top is clear heart doug fir, salvaged from 1908 SF victorian.
 Custom redwood outdoor table. Designed by client and myself, they wanted "chunky" appearance. Perimeter of tabletop was milled from columns taken down during their remodel of older Mill Valley home. Old Growth clear heart redwood throughout, nice!

 Antique butcher block was purchased at estate sale. Wish I knew history of this pc., but due to extensive wear was probably in butcher shop.  We restored maple top, built the base to emulate massive top and also the iron elements.
 Custom kitchen pantry cabinet. Built entirely of reclaimed doug fir material. VG flooring as sides, rough sawn framing stock for faceframe, resurfaced clear heart 1x12 paneling for doors and drawer stock. Period hardware. Nice contrasts!

Here are several photos of work we did for Peoples Barbershop, very popular SF barbershop at Polk and Bush.

 Custom pc., inspiration was photo from magazine given to me by client of kitchen sink vanity! The area at middle top where sink was will now have a baby changing pad! Huge amount of storage! Photo below is closeup of antique bin pulls.

 Polished steel dresser, Simmons brand. I still find these now and then, this one was at salvage yard, was faux painted to look like wood, fooled me until I tapped it realized was steel!
Custom desk, fabricated steel base with footrest. Will be on locking castors.

Another industrial machine shop auction find, polished the steel base and added top and shelf of very nice reclaimed pc. of Poplar.

 Found this cute little base at the flea market, made new shelf and top, also the middle shelf is removeable.
There are five of these chairs. Vintage schoolhouse?, they had steel and laminate writing tops bolted on them I removed and then restored the vintage bent ply seats and backs. Came out nice I think.
Found this vintage steel auto garage cabinet at the flea market. Couldn't resist, is perfect size for a bar. For the "man cave?"
