Custom Furniture & Repurposed Creations

Convertable Shelf This piece was commissioned to be used as either a floor or wall mounted television stand in an outdoor living area; it is finished in american walnut and sprayed with an exterior topcoat. In addition, the legs may be removed if the piece is to be hung.

This is a nice representation of a simple yet elegant design that may be used in various ways while staying within the client's budget.

Pram Bench This storage bench was the result of repurposing an older pram style baby stroller. The original stroller was in rough condition to say the least, so I decided to repurpose this into something with a little more functionality. The bench came to mind because of the inherit shape of the stroller.

Ash hardwood was used to create the legs and upper frame for the lid. While the lid/seat was made out of soft maple. A durable vinyl fabric (made in USA) was used to upholster the seat cushion.

The finish is a hand rubbed, beige colored shellac.

Cracked Ice Vanity This custom crafted bathroom vanity features a repurposed cracked ice table top with a New Old Stock (NOS) Houdee Rim Sink from 1969.

The cabinet carcass was created out of 3/4" cabinet grade plywood. Poplar was used for the doors and faceframe because of the painted finish. Two working draws increase the storage space which is great for hair curlers and/or blow dryers. The top was made from an old 50's dinette table. New ribbed stainless moulding was used to complete the vanity.

Retro Modern Bar This retro modern designed bar incorporates a birch plywood carcass with hardwood edging and doors; in addition, the base is made out of hard maple. A hand rubbed blonde finish was used as well as brushed aluminum accents to complete the style.

The two little whimsical ameba shaped accents on the front were added as a focal point and finished in turquoise and chartreuse to compliment the wall color and matching original 1950's stools.

This bar would make a very playful addition to anyone's modern or retro modern living space.

Storage Chest For something completely different, this storage chest was commissioned by a gentleman who owns a 1972 Chevrolet, El Camino. He needed a place to store supplies while attending car shows and cruise nights.

"About a year ago my friend bought a 1936 Chevy p/u and had Gene build him a box for the bed of his truck. I bought a 1971 Chevy El Camino last Nov. I asked Gene to build me a box. I wanted the chevy bow-tie emblem design in the lid.

"After numerous e-mails and dimension changes Gene came up with this box. The colors were another matter. I wanted red with a lite color, white or silver setting off the woodgrain. Gene felt that it might turn pink. He suggested black and that turned out awesome with the solid black outline.

"I suspect at least 80hrs labor and about 3wks design revisions to complete this project. I get a lot of looks and praise for this addition to my truck.

"Thanks Gene excellent job."
