Even in arctic temps, we are out there on the hunt! Last week, we were wandering around an abandoned optical factory with iphone flashlights in hand. Factory buildings are always fascinating and this one was no exception. The manufacturing equipment was massive–giant glass cutters, huge non-conductive slab work surfaces, and built-in sliding file systems. We brought home boxes of high-end glass lenses that were produced for medical & scientific equipment as well as some industrial stools & lockers.
We also bought some amazing industrial work tables that we couldn’t fit in our truck. Fortunately for us, the demo company that we work is very accommodating and offered to deliver the work tables/benches to us before demo. So we are anxiously awaiting delivery which is scheduled for next week. If you’re looking for a great industrial kitchen island or bar, check in with us! All of the tables that we bought are counter height–the smaller tables are metal with secondary wooden shelves underneath and the larger tables have metal frames with solid maple tops and a secondary shelves at the back. We are hoping to squeeze at least one of these work benches into the shop but some will definitely be heading for the storage barn.
