RN-74 Communal Table

Posted on May 24, 2011
Here are some pictures of the RN-74 communal table in process.

The table is made up of solid walnut planks with brass inlay—after we install the brass, we scrape it flush to the wood— you can see the brass shavings mixed in with the walnut. This was very, very satisfying.

Here are the two halves ready for final assembly. We are installing a solid brass block between the halves. The final dimensions are 43″ wide x 12′ long.

RECENTLY COMPLETED: Stumptown Division

Posted on October 27, 2010
This summer, MADE was hired to re-vamp Stumptown Coffee Roasters original Portland location on SE Division. The space had endured 10 years of abuse, and had some challenges with customer flow. With light modifications to the floor-plan, and a fresh take on materials and furnishings, we were able to visually open up the space, create more room for customers, and build in new coffee merchandising and storage solutions.

Modifications to the floor-plan included installing the cabinetry and display seen in the back left corner.

The bar face is made from Oregon white oak. We re-sawed the veneer from wind-fallen and diseased trees.

We also removed an old raised platform in the space and replaced it with a window counter and standing bar.

In the adjacent room, we installed two of our block tables, as well as two full-length wall mounted benches. The glass garage door is also new, and provides as much natural light as Portland will give us.

Salinas Desk

Posted on October 6, 2010

Hello Salinas Desk, our newest creation! The desk is on view at Show PDX: Opening reception tonight, and on display through the month: showpdx

The desk is constructed of two opposing bent laminations.

The full-extension drawer lives neatly inside the shape created by the undulations of the top. Behind the drawer, a removable face reveals a power strip and networking hub for powering and networking your electronics.

The desk measures 61″ long by 30″ deep, which should be plenty of space for writing, computing, and general grinding away!

Ahhh, the drawer. We really love the simplicity of this piece.

We are nearing completion on the MADE kitchen line. This will be a customizable, ready to ship kitchen system with some pretty trick details. The best part, this was designed with ease of installation in mind. More to come soon…

Remember those large beams we were sawing up a month back? These are pics of the final project: We have made two for the Stumptown Division remodel.

Each table consists of nine sections of reclaimed beams. These puppies are HEAVY!

Oregon White Oak Countertop

Posted on July 13, 2010
These are photos from our latest installation: we made this countertop as an add-on to a pre-existing kitchen.

View from the living room. The countertop flares out 6″, easing the eye into the kitchen area.

The characteristics of Oregon Oak are evident in this photo. Knotty, figured, and beautiful, wavy grain.
