I am starting on a new design this coming week and it’s based on a 60 French Industrial design. Dimensions will be 36″w x 12″d x 72″t, and I am making a 24″ wide version. Price should be in the range of $1,100 – $1,400, not sure yet.

Here is a big console shelf I just finished for a client’s office. I managed to get some really big slabs of Honduran mahogany for the table and it came out pretty cool. It’s huge (70+ inches long and 18″ deep), weighed 130 lbs, and has 5 spoke casters on it.
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 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.
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
