My TV needed something under it so I decided on this French Industrial inspired design. The Ironworker Console Table, 48″ x 20″ x 32″ tall (custom sizes and finishes available), weighs around 200 lbs, on 5″ locking cast iron casters, a 50lbs steel riveted top, 124 rivets and 28 braces, aged sugar pine lower shelves, and a rust patina. It got it’s name in honor of the old time ironworkers who, back in the day, built things with pride to last. We can make this in many variations, sizes, finishes, enclose it, add drawers, chrome, copper or polished finish, etc. This would also make a nice kitchen island or worktable. Prices vary, but this size and finish runs $1,650.
I’ll be making a run of casters soon similar to the design below. They’ll use a heavy duty 6″ cast iron wheel and have a rigid industrial frame. So they will roll but not swivel. I’ve been looking for casters like these for a year and can’t find them so I decided to make them. Pricing is going to be approximately $225 for a set of 4 and they will be handmade here in America, Phoenix to be exact.
I now carry aged Tolix cafe chairs (made in France) available in white, red, gray, and custom colors. Example prices, 2 in standard color $440 each, 4 for $420 each, 8 for $395 each. These have some light rust and wear marks, and are triple sealed with a satin industrial outdoor clearcoat. Not available like this anywhere else. Shipping for 2 chairs to NY is $65, CA $50.
These are new Tolix chairs that I age, not antiques which can run $600+ each. They were designed back in the 1934 by Xavier Pauchard for Tolix and are lightweight, yet very sturdy, and stackable, making a perfect outdoor cafe chair. These are the Marais A design. I can also get the wider Marais A56 chair, stools, barstools, tables and more.
Today I stumbled across some vintage sign letters that were going to be sent to the scrapyard. They are made out of tin, 32″ tall each, and show signs of fading and wear. I’ll get some better pictures of these soon.
Double drawer vintage industrial filing cabinet – 34″ tall x 16″ wide x 27″ deep. Makes a unique side table and fits legal or letter size files with room to spare inside. The drawers were salvaged from an old filing cabinet and the rest was handmade. Available in custom sizes, finishes, with casters, and different drawer combinations. Heavy duty, solid design built to last!
This custom piece is 79″ T x 16″ d x 24″ w, weighs close to 200 lbs, and has 192 rivets. It’s all handmade and built to last centuries. I named it the Ironworker Bookshelf in honor of the old time ironworkers who, back in the day, built beautiful things to last.
We can build these in custom sizes and finishes tailored to suit your needs (a chrome or rust steel finish would look great too). Price mainly depends on the size and varies from $1,650 on up . And I can give discounts for quantity orders. I plan on making a larger 4′ wide one for my wife so stay tuned…
Got the frame built for this new bookshelf design. Used 192 rivets in the construction so I might call this the 1920 bookshelf. Just need to add casters, seal the steel, then bolt on the aged wood shelves. This design was inspired by the French Industrial era.

Took some pictures of some new designs just finished. Includes a couple filing cabinets made with some new and salvaged steel, an NYC kitchen table which weighs in around 150 lbs, and a new Brooklyn design.
Here is another variation of the Ellis console table with 4 doors with solid fronts and 2 shelves in the middle. There is a hole in the back of each section for wiring. The piece is 60″ wide x 22″ deep x 32″ tall and weight around 225 lbs. This piece will price around $2295.
Custom Ellis console table with hand polished steel, doors on the top, and a black lacquered oak top. Has a mid-century modern industrial look. This was a piece for a client. Cost to reproduce this is around $1375 for the console plus $350 to polish it.
Started work on a 2 drawer filing cabinet based on a 40s industrial cabinet. I’m pretty excited about this piece! I’m building two and one will have casters, the other legs, and they will be around 35″ tall x 26″ deep x 16″ wide.
Apartment Therapy is having their annual holiday giveaway and I plan on entering a new Brooklyn coffee table design. So hopefully one lucky person will win this table. Here is the last giveaway: http://giveaways.apartmenttherapy.com/2009/holiday
This table is 40″ x 20″ x 19″ tall. It is all metal with lots of rivets and I will be using reclaimed mahogany for the bottom shelf. As usual, this piece is heavy and virtually indestructible. This piece will price around $1,095 and be available in any size. This might make a nice Media console table too. Wife thinks I should enclose it and add doors, kinda like a steamer trunk. Lots of possibilities…
I built this as a dining table but noticed it would work great as a desk. The one of a kind A frame is built of heavy gauge steel and 2 tubular cross braces with bolting ends. The solid top is made of 2″ x 12″ aged sugar pine.
Available in other sizes, finishes, a steel top, just the base and not top, etc. Custom work is my specialty!
Dimensions – 60″ wide x 34″ deep x 30″ tall, approx 250 lbs,
Priced at $1,850 on up
This table adjusts in height from 18″ to 30″ making it ideal for a coffee table or small dining table. And it’s so strong, that I could stand on the corner of the top and it would barely flex, so you could use it as a work table too. The threaded screw has a spinning lock underneath to keep it secure. This was a custom piece for a client, and I can remake it or change things around. The top is 3/16″ thick steel and 40″ x 40″ with a 1″ x 2″ boxed frame underneath. Price would be around $1075.
