In the works: French Industrial Media Console and Shelving

I have 2 new designs in my head. I am currently working a vintage French industrial inspired media console/TV stand table with 6″ casters. It’s based on this vintage buffet from Briggs House Antiques (they are asking $5,000).

The main differences will be the dimensions (48″ x 22″ x 30″ tall), caster wheels and a solid walnut top. I found some really cool cloverleaf design sheet metal for the cabinet fronts. And I went with big rivets instead of bolts for the construction because I like the look better. So far this piece is really heavy. I hope it weighs less than 150lbs for shipping purposes. Here is the piece at about 95% done. Just need to install the casters. This piece is finished now and you can see it here: Link

And the other piece is going to be a rolling shelf or console table similar to Wisteria’s design which is unfortunately no longer made. I heard they had quality issues so they stopped selling it. I just bought some African mahogany and ordered the hardware for this piece. Should look pretty nice once finished. I’ll have one of these made by early February because I LOVE this design.

2/18 It’s done now and you can see some examples here Link

    Can you please let me know what the hardware for the Wisteria console table is? Your console table turned out awesome!

    Thanking you in advance.

    Thanks Alex. I’m still figuring out all of the hardware on that piece. Should have it built next week, and I usually fabricate a lot of the hardware I use.
