Small Table Bases

Not too long ago, we shared a few table bases that were all big and hefty. This time around we’ve got a series of smaller, though no less substantial tables.

We shared some work-in-progress photos of this first set of tables last fall along with some other pieces of forged furniture. Since then, they’ve had tops created by the talented Sallie Plumley and the series of finished tables installed in the Tabol Brewing tasting room here in Richmond. What a gorgeous combination of handmade, local work, if we do say so ourselves!

Kyle created this grouping of glass top tables with forged steel bases in time for last fall’s Craft + Design show. This series consists of an oval coffee table and two round end tables. This set is available, so if you’re interested, contact us for pricing information and to arrange a visit to see them in person!

This last base was custom designed and created for this gorgeous stone top. We loved having this beautiful stone slab in the studio. These photos don’t come close to conveying the beauty of the colors and patterns. A simple but elegant base is just the thing to support this lovely top.

A few table bases

Here are a few commissioned tables Kyle designed and created with his assistant Kallen over the last few months.

This table was created for a couple that needed a base to go with their existing butcher block top. Kyle created a hefty design to visually and physically support the thick top. The feet rest on casters so it can be easily moved about the kitchen as needed. You can see the finished table with the top installed below.

Next up are a pair of large coffee tables for a hotel in the Washington, DC area. The client for these tables requested designs inspired by gears. Kyle had a lot of fun creating these two coordinating tables. These are some seriously substantial tables! They weigh in at about 300 lbs each. Good thing the hotel won’t need to move them often once installed.

Below are a few work-in-process shots of each table, as well as photos of the finished tables and detail shots of each table.

If you have a custom table or base idea you’ve been wanting to bring to life, feel free to reach out to us! And if you’re new to custom work, never fear. We’ll walk you through each step of the process.

Handforged Furniture

Kyle is trained as both a blacksmith and a furniture designer, so it might not surprise you that his favorite projects incorporate both his areas of interest. Here are a few pieces he designed and created over the last few months.

Kyle designed and forged these table bases for local woodworker Mark Rickey. They’re similar to a pair of end tables with walnut tops also available in our Etsy shop.
