Ply Bar Stools

July 1, 2012

True to my original Ply Chairs, this set of stools was made out of bits of plywood saved from the scrap pile.  This time we added color on top of what was already there to create a custom distressed color block effect.  This was delivered as a mixed set, but matching color sets are also available.

Dean Credenza

April 29, 2012

The Dean Credenza is a showcase of contrasting materials: salvaged cedar, navy blue leather and polished brass.  The solid wood case displays the exterior face of planks taken from deconstructed NYC water towers. Dark lines perpendicular to the grain are evidence of the steel bands that once bound the water tank. A wax finish keeps the weathered wood looking as close to its natural grey patina as possible. Doors clad in deep blue leather and brass hardware offset the cedar’s rustic feel.  Casual luxury.

Practical, simple, clean, affordable.  Salvaged spruce.  Well considered proportions.

Heavy duty shelving made of salvaged water tank cedar and blackened steel.  This design can be fabricated in just about any size and with your choice of wood.  The steel corner design would allow this piece to be even taller, wider and deeper than you see here without so much as a wobble.  Thanks to Evan the Intern (seen polishing above) for all his help over the past few weeks.

This solid reclaimed redwood case is fitted with extra large, solid maple dovetailed drawer boxes. Each drawer is 40″ wide x 10″ tall x 18″ deep, and the heavy duty hardware allows them to glide easily to full extension.  It’s big, but the flush inset drawer fronts, flat panels and lack of protruding hardware help the piece carry itself with grace.

Martin Table

We didn’t want the legs of this table to disappear under the large reclaimed wood top, nor did we want more obstruction to leg room than was necessary.  Instead of using steel bar or tube, we achieved  volume by designing with heavy gauge sheetmetal, bent and formed to a custom profile.  The result anchors the space without feeling too heavy. The top is made of floor joists salvaged from a renovation at my shop.

 

Clark Table

This table’s variations on traditional form make it subtly modern.  A single beam supports the length of the top rather than a traditional apron, and the diagonal taper of the legs lightens the piece while gently defying its farmhouse origins. It was born of NYC construction salvage: douglas fir floor joists milled to show fresh new faces.  Dark amber stain provides a big head start towards the fir’s natural color after decades of darkening.
