A couple months back we had a chef approach us looking for some kitchen islands. We decided to use our Ellis design. They are similar in style, and mirrored on both sides. One has 2 doors on each side, some shelving in the center, and an overhanging top to work as a bar with our Wright stools. The other has 3 drawers per side, open storage underneath, and 2 enclosed storage bays under that. Each Ellis island (funny how it came out that way) has GFCI outlets on one side with wiring routed down to the ground. These are finished with 4 heavy duty locking casters, and aged sugar pine tops. Weight is somewhere around half a ton each, ya they are heavy!
Last week we finished a new French Column base design. They are quite heavy using 1″ thick plate steel for the main supports, and are adorned with bent angle iron and hundreds of rivets. We can build these for round tops, consoles, desks, dining and conference tables, and more. Weight is around 300-400 lbs per base depending on size. Call for pricing.
I Beam conference table – 14′ long, approximately 1200 lbs, aged sugar pine top, riveted metal trim, with our I Beam base design. This is a custom piece we made for a client. If you are interested in something like this, let us know.
I took some pictures yesterday of some new pieces and designs…
308 Media Shelf – 84″ x 43″ x 18″ with space for a flat screen on the 3rd shelf
Ellis Media console – 7′ x 20″ x 18″ tall, has two doors and a center door with pipe legs
Industrial Toilet Paper Holder – Our shop needed one of these so I put this together. It’s definitely overbuilt, weighs around 10 lbs, and the Acme nuts keep the paper secure. The double holder will make sure you are never without a square again! – Price $225
Adjustable Height coffee table – 42″ x 42″ x 18-30″ tall, this heavy duty coffee table adjusts in height to double as a cafe or dining table. It has a 30″ square cutout in the center which will hold a piece of glass which allows you to see the workings of the design.
Here are some pictures of my work at the Smith Commons restaurant in DC.
Here is a variation of my Ellis design. It has 4 solid doors with ironwork that is riveted and bolted on, an internal shelf, 6″ cast iron casters, solid mahogany top and shelves, about 400 lbs of handmade steel and hardwood. Ideal for a residential, or commercial setting. Built to last a lifetime and then some. This piece as pictured is priced around $3575. Without the hutch it prices around $2595.
Dimensions: 60″ L x 20″ D x 74″ T
Available in custom sizes, finishes, and can be tailored to suit your needs.
Here is a new version of the 308 series, a desk with a rare 2″ thick mahogany top. The large aged pipe base sits on old spoked casters. This piece is 60″ x 19.5″ x 30″ tall and weighs in around 225 lbs. It would also make a nice console or display table. Price $1,750
Here’s an 8′ tall x 5′ wide 308 shelf I made for a Polo Ralph Lauren store back East. I used salvaged steel on some parts of it and it has some hardware from England.
Here’s my A Frame table with a customer’s glass top. I love the look!
Here is a pair on French Industrial design inspired conference tables that were finished today for a client. The long one is 10′ x 42″ x 30″ tall and weighs around 1000 pounds. The round table has a 36″ top, uses a smaller base, and weighs close to 350 pounds. The bases are riveted thick gauge steel and the removable tops are aged sugar pine. Prices vary for these pieces based on size and design, but you can have one like the round one for $3,500, and the long one for $5,750. These would also work great as dining tables. Another thought is to polish them up with a glass top for a mid-century modern look.
Here is a 308 shelf I finished yesterday. It has aged sugar pine shelves instead of the usual mahogany. Dimensions are 72″ x 36″ x 12″ deep and it prices at $1,395.
Just finished a pair of these for a customer. The design is based on a european vintage piece. They are all steel, riveted together with a thick steel top and an aged rust finish. These would work well as side tables, outdoor tables, use a couple of the bases to hold a coffee or dining table top, or use as a display table for your pet elephant. These measure 22″ x 22″ x 24″ tall and weigh around 75 lbs each. I can make these in a variety of size, finishes, and use different materials for the tops. Prices are around $995 each.
Here are some pictures of the Big Little Fudge trade show booth. Made some custom vintage industrial inspired banner stands with bracing, rivets and a rust patina on casters. They also used a couple of my X brace shelves. If you like fudge, try their stuff out, it is amazing (mouth drooling)!
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.
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!
