We’ve been working on this new crank table design for a few weeks now. There was a lot of rivet work and details to build and I’m quite happy with the progess. It started as me needing a new desk for myself. I’ve been wanting to make a new more elegant Crank Table, so after designing on paper, we started building. I chose to use two massive 5 ton screw mechanisms to support the top. On each side we’ll have 12″ cast iron wheels to adjust the height which will go from 30″ to 45″. The base is 7′ long, and the top which we’ll be making next, will be 7′ x 40″ and most likely aged cherry wood with metal trim and bolted corners. The base was built from extra heavy-gauge steel, and adorned with rivets and bolts (at least 200). We had thoughts of going yellow or orange, but went with an aged red finish. Once this piece is completed, I’ll have some pictures to show, as well as specs and pricing. Hope this is next week!
This base will work perfect for a desk, dining or conference table.
I was going through all the Ellis consoles we’ve made. There’s been a lot of them! So I put together an album and slideshow with some of my favorites. We’ve built them as coffee tables, media consoles, point of sale stations for restaurants, hostess stands, side tables, night stands, dressers, filing cabinets, sideboards, as a hutch, kitchen island, and more. Seems to be our most versatile design. I’ll be adding more info as well as sizing and options. All of these are custom Ellis’s:
We have a growing selection of industrial dining tables that vary in price and design. They are all original designs, inspired by vintage industrial pieces, made by our shop in Phoenix. Our industrial dining tables are built to last 100 or more years, and are commercial grade. Stay tuned for more designs coming out in the next few months. You can visit our Industrial Dining Table page for more info.
Our Hure dining table is one of our more recent designs. It’s thick gauge steel base is heavy but with feminine curves, and has a simple top that adds warmth to the piece. That massive 2″ screw and 3.5″ nut demand attention to the base. We’re thinking of casting this in brass and bronze in the future. Prices start around $4,500.
The A Frame design makes a wonderful industrial dining table. It’s elegant base never fails to attract looks and is in place at several restaurants across the country. We’ve built them from 5 long to 14′, and in dining and pub height. We build them from scratch, so they are customizable.
Our industrial Crank Dining Table has been popular with clients who like the option of standing or sitting, or like an adjustable table that goes from dining to bar height. This simple table has a massive base with two 4000 lbs mechanisms that lift and lower the top with a turn of the wheel. It can be made with or without casters. We’re building more ornate base for this table right now so stay tuned. Weight is around 500 lbs, and price starts at $5500.
Inspired by French industrial design, the French Column table uses 1″ solid steel plate for the main supports and is adorned with hundreds of rivets. Massive strength with feminine cures. We can build these for round tops, consoles, desks, dining and conference tables, and more. Weight is around 300-600 lbs per base depending on size. We can use one base or two depending on the top size, and build it in dining or bar height. Prices start around $4500.
This is our French industrial inspired I Beam design. The large beam design are adorned with rivets and bracing, and can support any size top. As always, these are built in America, designed to last forever, and can be tailored to suit your needs. Available as a single or double base table. Prices start at $3500 and go up to $8000.
Here are a couple pieces in the shop today, a Hure Dining table with a 10′ walnut top, and a Wright chair with extra lumbar support. The additional lumbar makes the chair a bit more comfortable! Pictures were taken in our showroom which we’re hoping to open in late October.
Vintage Industrial has been busy making chairs and stools and now have 4 customizable designs. We’re working over the next couple months to lower lead times on these and probably keep some IN-STOCK. All designs are commercial quality and beyond, and we can customize. Whether you need a desk or dining chair, or a bar stool at your restaurant or diner, we can do that.
Almost done with a new bar stool. We’re introducing a bunch of new designs in the next few months so check back often, or subscribe to updates. I’ll have more info and pricing on this stool in the next few days.
We’re working on some new chairs, and here is one of them, the A Frame stool. Makes a nice companion for our A Frame table, or any bar height table for that matter. This stool tips the scales at 40 lbs, is 30″ in height, has a 16″ aged mahogany top, and 2 solid steel 1″ thick machine screws for a foot rest. As always, this piece is commercial quality and built to outlast you. Priced at $425 each, $1620 for 4, or $4620 for 12.
Below is a custom Ironworker shelf we just finished for a client. It was made in 3 sections that bolt together and has 6 shelves, around 650 rivets, aged sugar pine wood, a rusted steel patina, and a 5″ apron. It measures 7.5′ tall by 9′ wide. This would work great as a bookcase or fixture in a retail store.
Yesterday we were featured on the cover of the Arizona Business Gazette and on the cover of the Arizona Republic in the business section. It was a nice surprise to hear about this. Needless to say, we’ve been flooded with calls and emails. We’re doing our best to get back to everybody! STORY HERE
And another in the Biz Journal.
And another at –> Core77
We don’t have a retail showroom setup just yet, but we can show you some current pieces we are working on for clients. You’ll need to make an appointment if you want to visit our shop. Please call 602-322-111 to make an appointment. Our address is 45 W. Buchanan Ave in downtown Phoenix.
And here are some pieces shipping out soon along with our logo that we’re playing around with:
Cory McClosky of Fox News paid a visit to us this morning. You can see the comical video here: http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dpp/morning_show/corys_corner/cory9am-04122012
Just finished a job for an office. All of the pieces were customized in some fashion and include desks, worktables, a conference table, file cabinets, and more. These were a blending of several designs: I Beam, Crank Table, Ellis, Bolted Table, and our riveted top. We used cherry, walnut and mahogany for the tops. These pieces are a good example of how we can customize pieces for clients.
We have a bunch of pieces ready to ship out, so I snapped some photos. The I Beam conference table has a 12′ x 5′ walnut top with riveted metal trim. And the bar height A Frame has a smaller walnut top with bolted metal trim.
Vintage Industrial has been a little cramped with the 6,000 sf we had, so we’ve decided to add another 14,000 sf. It’s kind of hard to believe that we have 20,000 sf of warehouse now, but it’s true! We’re still in the same location, just using both sides of the historic Neil B McGinnis building now. Our plans for the new space include adding some spectacular showrooms with many new products, a new distribution area, offices, and more.
Just wanted to thank all of the people that supported us, fans, customers, and our awesome employees! We couldn’t have done this without you.
