Vintage industrial 5 tier bookshelf on heavy duty 5″ cast iron caster wheels. This is the 3rd piece I’ve made in what I call the 308 Shelf. It measures 74″ tall x 12″ deep x 36″ wide. The shelves are made of solid 1.5″ thick African mahogany and have a vintage tung oil finish. The entire piece is aged to look mid-century and was inspired by the French industrial era. Priced at $995…

Here are a couple tables recently finished for customers. Both are custom versions of this table: French Industrial Coffee Table / Cart
The first table is gigundous at 5′ x 30″ x 18″ tall and the second table is the standard size but with legs instead of casters…
Theses cool tables were made for a department store sometime ago for display purposes. They sat in a box in the back and were never used so they are basically new. They do have some shelf wear with small bits of rust and some surface scuffing which adds to the look. Dimensions are 48″ x 24″ x 18″ tall which is the perfect coffee table. The style looks mid-century modern and they are made of steel with a thick glossy clearcoat. Priced at $495 + $30 shipping – 4 available. Call Greg at 602-322-1111 to purchase.
Here is the finished Console Table. I finished the wood slightly darker than the last table. The African Mahogany is finished with tung oil and I love how it came out. This table could also be a short bookshelf or you could add a shelf or two and make it a full size bookshelf. The 5″ casters make it easy to move around and are gentle on flooring. Dimensions are 4′ x 14″ x 30″ tall and it weighs in at 61lbs. Priced at $595. Shipping: West Coast $75, East Coast $100
I also snapped a picture without the top shelf added because it looks like it would make a nice bench or narrow coffee table.
I finally got my European hardware order and finished what I call the 308 Shelf. I got this idea from a piece Wisteria used to sell a few years back but made some changes to the design and came up with this side table. It’s the size of an end table, but would work as a small shelf or rolling cart. It has a vintage French Industrial feel to it. Dimensions are 14″ x 22″ x 23″ tall and it weighs 37lbs. The wood is solid 1.5″ thick African mahogany with a vintage stain on it and I think this hardwood is GORGEOUS. And the iron has a vintage galvanized patina. The 4″ casters have locks to hold it in place.
Priced at $450 in this size. Next I’ll be making a console table size at 4′ x 14″ x 30″ tall.
Here are a couple examples of custom Brooklyn tables I made for a customer. The side table is 20″ x 20″ x 23″ tall and the square coffee table is 32″ x 32″ x 18″ tall. The customer wanted legs instead of caster wheels. I’m really happy with how they came out!
One of my first customers opened their doors a couple weeks ago (story here). Now New Yorkers can see my work in person and get a 5 star dessert at the same place. Most of my pieces have shipped to New York, and since my shop is in Arizona, I hope this helps those in NY with their purchases. So if you are curious about my work, stop by, take a look, and get some dessert. Also, this customer did the stain and finish on the wood themselves which goes well with their maple benches. The benches were not my work, just the 5 cafe tables.
On another note, it seems my website is getting some decent traffic from people searching for vintage/industrial furniture. Last weekend my site reached 10,000 hits.
Here are some examples of antique French furniture reproductions that I have done. I have a big picture database of mostly antique French industrial furniture pieces that I keep to inspire me. You are welcome to take a look at it and if there is something you like, let me know and maybe I can make it for you: French Industrial Furniture That Inspires Me
Below, the first piece is the original French piece, and the second is my version.
After looking around on the internet, I couldn’t find any nice industrial style media console tables. So I got an idea from an early 1900s vintage French piece and started a new design. The way the frame is built, it has moulding around the edges with large iron rivets keeping it all together. The lower cabinet can hold audio/video components and the cloverleaf screen door allows your remotes to work with the doors closed. And there is a hole in the back of the cabinet for wiring. The back of the frame is built to hold and hide wiring from the TV down to the AV components. The solid walnut top measures 48″ x 22″ and the piece is 32″ tall. Weight is around 170lbs. The heavy 6″ cast iron wheels make it easy to move around. This would also make a nice console table or credenza. Priced at $1,350
