lumbering_behemoth Just one more shot of this kitchen piece that highlights the transformation from Point A to Point B. I'm really happy with the way the lower shelf worked out. The original steel crosspiece is 3/4" thick and welded on top of the angle iron sidepieces, so it worked out perfectly flush with the vintage 1x shelf material. Synchronicity.

lumbering_behemoth POINT B! Oh my. Oh my my my. For those of you who have been following along (or not), here's what has become of that ragged old work bench that I first posted last week. (Go to my gallery and find "Point A" for a comparison.) Counter height. Nice big work surface. Storage shelf underneath. Comfortable dining for two. Intimate space for six good friends to have cocktails and play cards. Contact me through my website for inquiries. It'd be a bear to ship, but well worth it.

lumbering_behemoth Going through a tray from machinist's toolbox that I brought home from the junkyard a couple weeks ago, I uncovered this tiny drive chain. It just fits over my Behemoth paw. I'm not big into adornments or accoutrements, but when the universe is talking to you, it's best to listen.

lumbering_behemoth I haven't forgotten about this kitchen island/table, though I have forgotten what phase we are in. We're close, though! The vintage white pine top is glued up and has the first coat applied. Still needs the lower shelf and some steel & wood finishing.

lumbering_behemoth Phase 3: Rollin'. The repurposed workbench/kitchen piece continues. This afternoon, I custom-built a skirt from some of the reclaimed white pine. This serves as an attachment point for the slick new lockable casters (I know, old casters would have been cool, but I didn't have any on hand, and I want this bad boy to roll smoooooothly.) Note the old, square headed lags attaching the existing steel frame to the skirt. I've always got my eyes peeled for rusty hardware. It drives me crazy thinking of how many abandoned "grandpa's workbenches" there are out there in sheds and garages and basements, covered in jars full of rusty, vintage hardware... #repurposed #steelfurniture #ruggeddesign #industrialdesign #softindustrial #modernindustrial #moderndesign #interiordesign #loft #loftstyle #kitchendesign #functionalart #furnituredesign #handmade #kitchenfurniture #lumberingbehemoth #junkyardart #rust #rusticdesign #reclaimedwood #rustyhardware #RustyButTrusty 7d

lumbering_behemoth Phase 2: Glue-up. I'm edge-gluing these reclaimed white pine 2x12s as part of the repurposed workbench/kitchen piece project. (See Point A and Phase 1 in my feed.) White pine is not traditionally a very desirable wood, but these pieces have led a looooong life as floor joists under a commercial building in downtown Sullivan, IL, and the softness of the wood has allowed it to absorb all kinds of wonderful particulate over the years. A hand-rubbed top coat makes it glow like well-worn bronze. More to follow!

  •   funluv11 It's getting some chairs this week. In our new home, it will be more of a dining table! 1w
  •   tylko we love that. 6d
  •   lumbering_behemoth Thanks, @tylko ! It's the result of much brainstorming and problem solving. My client liked a dining table that I built, but wanted to know if I could make it adjustable. It was a fun challenge! 6d

lumbering_behemoth Phase 1: Grinder time. (See "Point A" below for reference) I took a cup brush on a grinder to this workbench base in order to get rid of the loose, powdery rust. A couple light taps with a hammer freed the x-brace, which was already loose. I also chopped a few inches off of each leg to make room for an upcoming phase. More updates are likely tomorrow. Stay tuned!

lumbering_behemoth Point A: Someone's home-made workbench. I picked it up in one of my favorite junk shops. The top is rotted and a couple welds are broken, but time clearly spent outside has also given the steel parts a well-pitted, oxidized patina. I've got a vision for a kitchen piece. Follow along, won't you?

aceintheholedoc On Monday we interviewed one of our pals Michael Snook from NIMBY. For those who don't know, NIMBY is an artistic space in #Oakland that welcomed all #artists and #makers to come and create, network and collaborate...kinda like Ace! Michael describes NIMBY as a "do-it-yourself (DIY), hacker-space, maker-space, morale shop, adult playground and shared industrial art space that provides artists, craftspeople and the entrepreneur a place to create, innovate, and collaborate." NIMBY stands for Not In My Back Yard because NIMBY is a place for artists who work unusual hours, make a little too much noise or make too much of a ruckus...it's a place to go before your neighbors can tell you, "Not in my back yard!" For more info. on NIMBY, visit their website: www.NIMBYspace.org
