Steel Box Coffee Table
Customizable in any size, with any wood.
Classic metal frame in 3/4 steel stock with beautifully weathered barn boards.
I love a good kitchen island. This old butcher block couldn’t have been turned into anything else. I used 1″ pipe, manila rope and oak boards to add handsome function.
Let this inspire you to dream up your own island. We’ll find (or make) the perfect top for you, complete with pipe base and rope shelves.
made from an old parts washer, this industrial form just needed a piece of glass and LOT of cleaning (I couldn’t even see the orange when I bought it). It has a lovely glide and turns easily for effortless beer sampling. 42″ diameter and currently set to 20.5″ tall, it is adjustable to 17″.
rustic material + modern design = great table
reclaimed barnboard sanded and oiled, steel hairpin legs fabricated in easthampton by Blue Collar Artisans.
this table measures 40.5″ x 66.5″ x 30″, but we could make something similar for you in just about any dimension, with just about any wood.
do you ever wish your kitchen had an island made out of solid steel? and it was on castors so you could move it around even though it was so heavy? and that it had already had a nice long life so it had a beautiful patina- but that someone else cleaned all the grime off and gave a it nice clear finish? and if you were really dreaming big here, it had an adjustable height so it would always be practical? if you answered yes to all these questions- YOUR WISH JUST CAME TRUE.
24″x54″x adjustable height 29.5″-34″
this table is full of history. the legs are from an old school desk- ‘the boston’. the top is a cast iron stove hearth and measures 16″x33″. it adjusts from 17″ tall (perfect coffee table height) up to 25″. oh, and it weighs a ton.
this piece is so sturdy and good looking it is essentially boundless in its potential uses. it serves perfectly as a small coffee table with a sheet meal surface that has achieved a lifetime of patina, means you couldn’t leave a stain if you tried. the legs are from a cast iron stove, so sturdy you can stand on it, or sit on it as a bench at the foot of your bed. and finally, the top swings out to reveal hidden storage space, a plus whether you’re hiding things, or just hiding that your storing them.
this repurposed chicken coop makes for a fun and functional coffee table with a storage space perfect for blankets and books. and did I mention handsome? the reclaimed barn board top has been poly’d to withstand life and the coasterless.
*not suitable for the storage of children or pets
We’ve had this old try from a barn clean out & it’s been kicking around while we waited for inspiration- and a few days ago anthropologie provided one! Ours is a little different, (as all our stuff is ;)) since we used all reclaimed materials. I think it’s pretty adorable.
This was custom job inspired by a restoration hardware table. We used rough white oak, a dark stain, sanded like crazy people and finished with an oil based poly to make the top look pretty and handle some serious living. The base & frame were custom made by a talented metal worker we know.
