Heavy duty shelving made of salvaged water tank cedar and blackened steel. This design can be fabricated in just about any size and with your choice of wood. The steel corner design would allow this piece to be even taller, wider and deeper than you see here without so much as a wobble. Thanks to Evan the Intern (seen polishing above) for all his help over the past few weeks.

We didn’t want the legs of this table to disappear under the large reclaimed wood top, nor did we want more obstruction to leg room than was necessary. Instead of using steel bar or tube, we achieved volume by designing with heavy gauge sheetmetal, bent and formed to a custom profile. The result anchors the space without feeling too heavy. The top is made of floor joists salvaged from a renovation at my shop.

A small apartment’s need of a sleek dining table is perfectly served by the glass topped Trestle table. The glass was a lucky score from a local salvage yard and the base is constructed of salvaged old-growth douglas fir floor planks.
The piece is displayed here with a refurbished, vintage Shaw Walker desk chair, and the heavy duty, extendable shelf system I put together using a cast off painters’ plank.

Serious cooks need serious work space. This narrow, counter-height piece expands prep space greatly without obstructing key paths of travel. The red-brown surface is solid Sepetir, an Indonesian hardwood. Sounds glamourous, but the species is widely used as flooring for semi-truck trailers, which is where the scraps used here served their first tour of duty. The steel base is designed with a high support. and a wide stance for stability and enough clearance for stools from all angles. The simple oil and wax finish is completely food safe.
