Tiny Tables Series 5

I am very proud to present Tiny Tables Series 5. William Morris said,”Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” and I believe Series 5 fits the bill for both.

New hand made adjuster.

Series 5 represents natural beauty, rebirth, and hope. Its construction is based on a butterfly sculpture I have been working on, and the legs mirror the angles I use for wings. Combined with all repurposed materials, Series 5 will be recreated over-and-over using a variety of materials while keeping the design the same.

Series 5 #1 and #3 feature removable X-ray cartridge tops as well as a handmade adjustor and walnut feet.

Dimensions 11″ x 13″ x 20″ // Price $113


#2 features solid steel top.


Series 5 #2 has a reclaimed steel top, eye bolt adjustor.

Dimensions 14″ x 14″ x 21″ // Price $113


“Tiny Tables Series 5— Own Something Beautiful” 


Tiny Tables!!!

Tiny Tables: Beautiful, Simple and Useful.

One of my favorite things about making each piece individually by hand is how different and unique each piece really is. From the materials I am using, to the way I feel, and the designs that are in my head. Each piece is a truly unique experience, and a great way to watch the evolution is through the tiny tables. Let’s look back at the evolution of tiny tables.

These are from the first series of Tiny Tables. Under the ZOO name, this was an original set of ten, built at The Hive Phoenix. Do you have one?

Series two Tiny Tables were slightly larger due to the barn wood I was using at the time. All steel was “Urban Foraged”.  There were originally five in this series, made under the ZOO label, and built at the Hive Phoenix.  Do you have one?

Series three was similar to series one, but were numbered 1-12.

Series four tiny tables were the first under the new ‘Industrial Craftsman Furniture” label, featured a stenciled W on the bottom and were part of a full collection called “Industrial Revolution”.  There were 3 of each piece in this collection, the first collection built at “the cottages”…

This series included 5 pieces and were cut offs from the patio tables I did for the Tempe Buttes Marriott. They were built at the cottages and were the first to feature a carved-W  signature instead of spray paint stencilled.


Two Tiny tables and a saw blade table I built In Ghent NY.

As you can see, over time my style has developed and changed. There are many more “Tiny tables” out there but I do not always get/keep photos. Do you have one? Post a photo.

Cottonwood Farmer’s Market!


Old Town Cottonwood Farmers Market features local produce, assorted baked goods, local wares, and one perfectly minimalist furniture booth.


For the past five weeks I have set up my booth at the OTCWFM where the weather is perfect, the music is amazing and the people are engaging. The Industrial Craftsman Furniture booth consists of one slightly used cart showcasing the furniture du jour (whatever piece I was building that week).

This Black Acacia piece made a splash on the community…

Available at Cartwheels in Cottonwood.

Douglas Fir Coffee Table with copper inlays… Available at Zinnias on Melrose.

This one works as either a bench or as a table for behind a couch, made of old growth fir, steel and style.

The Kitsch-in, is an experiment in Traditional, industrial, and Craftsman styling. Rather than write out a long winded blog, I will let the pictures and description tell the story…


Starting with Barn wood reclaimed on site, I built the first counter and shelves. The barnwood is set on a 45 degree angle, the floor and ceiling follow…The shelves are matching barnwood, with parabolic brackets, and a stout maple counter…

Beneath lies a cabinet with a blue steel countertop and maple sliding doors…1495417901863

This creates a clean simple look and no doors to block the walkway…


The end of the counter features thick maple shelves and a cut out for a dishwasher…

The whole space ties together nicely using new and reclaimed materials, classic and contemporary design, and practical use of space. Creating a beautiful and usable space…


NY_Rhinebeck Pilates

Spring is a wonderful time in NY, the weather warms up, the flowers bloom…and stuff gets built.

Rhinebeck is an adorable hamlet on the Hudson river about an hour and a half north of the city, it features colonial and gothic architecture, cute, bustling shops and an amazing Pilates studio.

I had the privilege of building the front desk for said amazing studio, in this charmed hamlet. It started with locally sourced, spalted Maple that was beautifully figured and had dark lines of “spalting”. Then, I added some birch Plywood to match the existing furniture. The final step was creating a “charging station” where students could leave their cell phones, while escaping into the Pilates peace of mind.
