Distressed Industrial Desk | How-to

This is without a doubt one of my favorite builds! 

A client of mine recently commissioned me to design and build an industrial desk for his office--and well, lately I've been obsessed with pictures of old abandoned factories so I tried to work that aesthetic into the design, and this is what I came up with.

Special thanks to my Patrons, as well as Lincoln Electric, and Waterlox for sponsoring my work and making this possible!

Industrial Table | How-To

This is my first commissioned piece for a decor/furniture store located in Dunedin Florida. The client wanted a wood & steel industrial influenced table, they had also expressed a preference for lighter wood.

Although I had initially intended on using some contrasted hickory, I ended up with a few beautiful pieces of poplar--a severely underrated hardwood in my opinion.

Anachronistic light bulb oil lamp

I saw these little light bulb containers at the local hobby shop and thought about how it would be interesting and unconventional it might be  to use them as an oil lamp..

All in all this was a very simple project, other than drilling through the porcelain for the wick.

Still trying to work my way through my pile of scrap wood.
