Tables, other custom pieces
Here it is the end of August the summer flew by! Yes I will be at Alameda Sunday Sept. 6, Booths N 15-18. Lots of great stuff including Tables!, its that time of year. First set of photos here, custom dining table with purple painted border. Very colorful, top surface is all reclaimed wood.
Here is photo of a very massive bed frame as designed by client and myself. Roughsawn doug fir timbers as frame, steel and iron mesh and reclaimed wood make up panels.
Round White Oak table. Client brought me this design, was a tricky one. I liked it so much I made another to bring to Alameda.
These were made for Philz coffee to use as stanchions for line control. Alot of fun to make!
This table is Island ht., 36" Will be bringing to Alameda. Surface is pine bowling lane slab, with a gray stain. Base is fabricated from salvage steel 2x2 beams.

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.
