Factory Finds

We have been American Pickers in an old factory slated for demolition in New England for the last few months.
It originated in the 1800s making a variety of products until current day.  Each iteration of this factory's life was stored in layers throughout the various buildings.  From pipe organs to infant coffins to solar panels, this place was full of bizarre stuff.
We spent a lot of time digging.
And I've been at work designing and turning our factory finds into one of a kind furnishings for home + studio.
I've been selling the medium sized cabinets to be used as end tables and night stands.
The small cabinets, many, fit on the counter under most kitchen cabinets.  Or on a shelf.  We like using them for organizing small stuff we need to stash.

Check out what I made:

Spa Boxes, End Tables, Medium and Small Cabinets
