Here is another media console I just finished for a client. I changed a couple things from the first model I made which is different wood on the top (mahogany), and cast iron latches. Dimensions are 48″ x 17″ x 31.5″ tall which is a little more narrow than the other one I made. I do love how this came out with the minor changes. I HOPE to get enough time to make one for myself as I just sold the 3rd one which was going to be for me. Can’t keep em on the shelf!

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
I have 2 new designs in my head. I am currently working a vintage French industrial inspired media console/TV stand table with 6″ casters. It’s based on this vintage buffet from Briggs House Antiques (they are asking $5,000).
The main differences will be the dimensions (48″ x 22″ x 30″ tall), caster wheels and a solid walnut top. I found some really cool cloverleaf design sheet metal for the cabinet fronts. And I went with big rivets instead of bolts for the construction because I like the look better. So far this piece is really heavy. I hope it weighs less than 150lbs for shipping purposes. Here is the piece at about 95% done. Just need to install the casters. This piece is finished now and you can see it here: Link
And the other piece is going to be a rolling shelf or console table similar to Wisteria’s design which is unfortunately no longer made. I heard they had quality issues so they stopped selling it. I just bought some African mahogany and ordered the hardware for this piece. Should look pretty nice once finished. I’ll have one of these made by early February because I LOVE this design.
2/18 It’s done now and you can see some examples here Link
