January 3, 2016 Alameda Update

Vintage large cabinet, slightly embellished, fully restored
I will be posting many photos later this week. Sunday Jan. 3 is next Alameda show and I will be there with HUGE load, probably best selection of furniture and smalls I have had for several years! Booths N 15,16,17,2*** FRIDAY JAN 1 UPDATE. - As I have missed the last two of three shows at Alameda most of the pieces shown in former posts on 12/5 and 10/3(scroll down) are still avail. As mentioned above the load I am bringing is extensive. My trusty camera is acting up again so I had to shoot with the Iphone yesterday, there are many pieces that were not shot  but will try to get some more photos today as we load the truck.    SATURDAY AFTERNOON UPDATED- A few more photos now at end of post
Nightstand or? Started with a small steel cardfile like cabinet body,  here is the result.
 Took me several years to accumulate these vintage license plates, finally had enough for this drawer unit. Antique cast iron feet(old stove?), reclaimed wood throughout.
Nice Industrial big red cabinet. acquired from machine shop going out of business, it was pretty beat up when I got it. Wooden shelves added to interior, wheels and vintage hardware also. N
 This old locker was the one purchase I made last month at Alameda. Even though was cold and raining many vendors chose to attend, I went out to shop. Walked around for several hours, this is the only thing I got. Believe WWII era, I removed multiple crusty paint layers from the front and polished. The interior has been cleaned and pretty cool result.

 Here are a pair of custom computer desks. Doug fir slab tops, grey stain.

 Custom dining table. Vintage cast iron machine base as legs.                                                      

 Originally was a built-in, salvaged from North Oakland Craftsman. Fully restored, hardware added.

 Bought the steel cabinet at Berkeley salvage yard.  NOS wheels added, locking castors. i made the doors, added shelf. This one cleaned up nice,could be bar, or?

 Smaller wine cabinet, body is framed by vintage wooden ladder pieces.
