B’s kitchen Desk

B's new desk

A few posts back I said I had bought industrial lathe legs off ebay. Well they finally arrived and I spared no time mounting them to the butcher block top the previous owner left in the Honeycomb Hideout. The longest part of this project was waiting for the legs to get here. All in I spent $175 which is a far cry from the inspiration desk at $8250.

Reclaimed cabinets

Well while i’m waiting for the industrial lathe legs I bought off of ebay we took a little trip down to senate antiques. If you’ve never been it’s a cool place to find all kinds of old stuff. On our visit we bought a couple of small old cabinets. One for a warehouse phone and another for a microscope. I took the guts out of them and hung them in our bathroom for extra storage. I think I may pop one of the plugs out and put my toothbrush inside. We also bought an old tub to serve beverages in and something that i’m not sure what the hell it is, but I liked it and it’s hanging in our living room.

Maru made industrial desk

My fiance…er, I hate that word but that’s what she is. LOve her to death has been working on a plastic folding table in the kitchen since she moved in. She likes having the computer in the kitchen so she can look up recipes and keep an eye on her/our seven year olds surfing habits. I have an old slab of butcher block in the work shop that I knew I’d use for something and here’s my opportunity. The desk is loosely based off of this at a cost of $8250. I think I can do better on the price. I sourced a couple of old lathe legs and a old glavanized gym locker basket off of ebay and all are on the way to the house. I’ll post pics of the completed project.  Now I wait.

Man room

What once was a nondescript work room is now a bonafide man room complete with a drunken monkey.

The best part of all is that it’s still a work room. I hid my Industrial fabricating machine behind the curtain.

Skeleton Vampires in my beer

Maybe it was an omen or just a fluke. I wasn’t taking any chances so I drank them away.
