Industrial Table [WRECKAGE]April 15th, 2016 in blog, member junk
Here’s the latest piece of furniture created from my debris field. I found an old wooden workbench top at an estate sale a few months ago. That’s all the inspiration I needed to build a table. After acquiring all the steel to construct the base from one of the shadier flea markets, I was ready to start cutting and drilling. Once the main frame was assembled the steel was painted green. Then, the fun part…make it look old…really old. I went for that 19th century factory look, so there are lots of chips, peeling paint and rust. I built a “parts tray” for the base and numbered the compartments…gotta keep that factory look going. The tray was painted and then completely trashed. It’s chipped, gouged, stained and splattered…a complete wreck.
