Firehouse table
This table has two old fire hydrants that support the massive structure. Chris did an awesome job air brushing life into the laser cut flames. The hydrant wrenches actually spin and will be used as a lazy susan.

Industrial coffee table "Teslas table"
Industrial coffee table "Teslas table"
I just finished this one and I love it.... The table was built around a 100 year old electrical panel. I really nailed the finish on this one, making it hard to tell where the old ends and the new begins. I'm currently adding LED lights to the inside of the old gages. They will turn on using an original key on the panel. The LED's will be 100% hidden and powered by a remote battery pack. This is a spec piece and is available for purchase. SOLD..Thanks Joe
Amber colored LED's were added to the old gages to create a subtle glow with the turn of a key. Making the 100 year old switch work with modern electronics was time consuming but worth the effort.

The bench measures 101 inches in length and varies in width from 20"-24" ... The heavily spalted Sycamore is over two inches thick and has incredible character. Scoring a piece of Spalted Sycamore this large is tough work.. This awesome slab was sanded down to 220 and then sealed with three layers of high quality polyurethane for a longlasting finish.

This incredibly cool saw from the 30's was headed for the scrap yard....With a little hard work and creativity I was able to breathe some new life into the old girl. I removed the cutting head from a 1930's bandsaw and then designed and built a custom base utilizing heavy springs. I made this one for fun.....

Repurposed furniture .. Coke machine conversion..
I took a "beat down" old coke machine from the 1950's and turned it into a unique towel holder. It would eventually make it's way to a clients lake house in Georgia. The old Coke machine shell was fully restored on the exterior and the inside was converted with Teak shelving.

The inside was relined and received Teak shelving for a unique lake house towel holder. If you want to see the Coke machine prior to restoration then check out my "Random Studio Shots" page to your left.

I like mixing the steel support with the waterfall edge. This one is heading over seas.

The waterfall edge makes the wood grain appear to simply drop over the edge. I strategically placed my cuts to optimize the woods natural character.
