In addition to building tables & desks, we also sell our bases separately. These are all built to order to fit your top. Prices are estimated and can vary depending on your top choice and size.
New Crank Table Base Design – $10,500 estimated
This new crank table is almost finished! It’ll feature two massive 5 ton screw mechanisms that support and adjust the top height (30″ to 45″), as well as two 12″ cast iron crank handles. The base has 200+ rivets and bolts and is made from extra heavy duty gauge steel. It has an aged red finish and will have a cherry wood top with metal trim. Contact us for more info, or check back for finished pics and specs.
Hure Base – $3200
I have a love for the old cast iron bases made from the late 1800s to the 1940s. A French machinist named P. Hure built many different lathes and milling machines that stood on them. They are rare and very hard to find, especially in America, so I built this base as a tribute to him. Itâ€™s built with 1/4″ thick steel which is the heaviest gauge weâ€™ve used to date. And the large connecting screw has a 2″ diameter with a 3″ nut that holds the two bases together. Itâ€™s massive and curvy lines blend well to support the top of your choice. As always, this piece can be customized to suit your needs.
Floyd – $3200
This piece is another tribute to the old cast iron machine bases made from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. This base was built to support a large top. The bottom plates are 1 3/8″ thick solid steel which makes it stable for large tops. Itâ€™s the heaviest base weâ€™ve made to date and weighs in around 400 lbs, and it has a great vintage patina. It would support a 10â€² top well, or use two bases to make a 20â€² top.
Crank Table – $4800
Height adjusts from 10″ – 18″ with the 2 ton rated screw mechanisms. This piece has a 10″ cast iron wheel, crank the wheel and it goes up or down. Can be built in many sizes as a desk or table. Available with casters too. This entire piece is made by hand in our shop. It is pretty heavy, around 350 lbs. Can support a wood, glass, steel, or stone top.
A Frame – $1495
I built this as a dining table but noticed it would do double duty as a desk. The A frame is built of heavy gauge steel and with 2 tubular cross braces with bolting ends. The design is unique and reminiscent of vintage French Industrial design. Available in dining and bar height.
Smith Commons: $995
This smaller adjustable height base was built with restaurants in mind. We can vary the height to fit coffee tables, to dining through bar height. As always, it’s heavy duty and meant to last beyond a lifetime.
