Here is another one of a kind table created by visiting designer VÃ¡clav JirÃ¡sko. Would make a cool coffee or end table. It’s for sale and the price is still to be determined.
I’ve had a guest furniture designer, VÃ¡clav JirÃ¡sko of JirÃ¡sko Industries, staying with me for the last week. He flew in from the Czech republic just to visit. Here is his first creation that was made in America, the No. 11 coffee table. It has a rustic 1.5″ thick cedar top with extensive bracing and riveted legs. Dimensions are 28″ x 40″ x 19″ tall. It’s priced at $1,095 and is a one of a kind piece.
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.
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…
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.
And here is a slightly smaller version with a 30″ x 30″ wood top. This was built as a cafe table / dining table for Smith Commons restaurant in DC.
I found a small supply of reclaimed mahogany today (4/4 or 1″ thick). Back in 1912 it was installed as bleacher seats at a school in New Mexico so I’d guess it to be 2-300 years old. It’s been planed down and has some signs of age, plus holes here and there from the old screws that held the seats down. I can’t wait to get it on a piece, maybe a desk?
I also bought old two tables. One is coffee table size, has a metal base and an ugly square top which I will be replacing probably with some of the mahogany. And my wife spotted this one, an 8′ long oak table probably from the 40s that was used in a school. It’s going to be gorgeous once we refinish it. It would be nice as a dining or work table.
With New York being a big inspiration for my designs, I set off to build a tribute to the amazing place. My clients in New York usually have a few things in common: they want something unique that has an industrial feel, it needs to be functional yet beautiful, and space is always an issue.
I feel these pieces meet all of those needs. They were built as 2 separate tables that can function as side or accent tables, yet when put together, they work as a coffee table. The custom font that I created makes them blocky as possible which leaves lots of top surface area. And they have latching doors so you can use them for storage (about 3.5 cubic feet each). You can also face the letters forward, or upwards. After I built them, I realized how heavy they were (120lbs approx). So these could be used as safes if I installed an optional lock.
Dimensions: 20″ x 20″ x 20″
Weight: 120 lbs each
Price: $1,350 for both

Here are some photos of some custom work for a client.
I had two customer send in photos of their tables. The first is an industrial metal coffee table. The client is a photographer so the photos are astounding. You can take a look at his portfolio here: http://www.jonathanyoung.com/
The second set of photos are from a customer up north in Canada.
Here is an industrial metal coffee table I made for a client. I like the size which is 17″ t x 24″ d x 42″ w. I want to make one of these with polished casters when I get some time. This would go great with a polished Manhattan table.
There are several new projects in the works right now. I’m making 6 Manhattan design tables with unique features. I got hold of some tractor paint today so I’ll probably make a John Deere green table along with a vintage Caterpillar yellow table. And a polished console table with a metal top. I just found somebody local that has a plasma CNC machine which can precision cut letters, or anything for that matter. So I am going to try cutting METRO on a metal top, and possibly an all metal NY table which I am pretty excited about. It would be big letters that would work as separate side tables, or combined to make a coffee table.
Hopefully next month I’m going to NY, for the first time I might add. Might be there for a week checking out the city, as well as marketing my wife’s bridal line. Can’t wait to go!
This new creation has a thick mahogany top with a shellac finish. It measure 40″ w x 20″ d x 18″ t and weighs a little over 100 lbs. The cabinet has two doors with cast iron latches, and is enclosed all the way around by a cloverleaf screen. Other features include a dark vintage patina on the steel, lots of iron rivets, 6″ cast iron casters, and a small hole inside the cabinet for A/V wiring if you want to use it for that. This piece is designed to function as coffee table or a TV stand with room for components below.
Priced at $1150
This design is based on my media console, just in a coffee table size (40″ w x 20″ d x 18″ t). It would also make a cool tv stand. It has 6″ heavy duty casters, a rich dark vintage patina on the steel, and aged gray oak for a top. Weighs around 100 lbs, but rolls around easily with the casters. I’ll be making some different versions of this, like enclosing the bottom shelf, using mahogany, and making one 50″ wide. Priced at $895, this piece can also be customized to suit your needs.
