Bob's My Builder!

Farm tables, kitchen islands, sinks and more...

For years, we have been saving bits and pieces, parts and hardware.  We love all things vintage and kitchen related and, out of necessity, because we couldn't afford to buy display pieces for our vintage kitchen displays, we started building our own... sink cabinets, kitchen islands and farm tables.  We love to repurpose, refresh and reinvent tired old stuff and give it a new life.

Hi, I'm Jack!

I'm about 103" wide and 85" tall and I am 22 1/2" deep.  My top was built separately from by bottom so I am easy to move.  I would love to come live at your place and hold all your awesome stuff!!!

I hail originally from Postville, Iowa where my base was a store counter in a Jack Sprat storefront in the late 40's and early 50's.  My working surface is made from bleachers that came from the Cornell College gymnasium in Mount Vernon, Iowa and the boards for my shelving units were salvaged from hog panels in a rural Illinois barn.

Hi, I'm Clifford! *I've found my new forever home*

What's something exciting your business offers? Say it here.I'm 82" long & 41" wide.  I'm 37" tall and I'm a workhorse!

I'm made from an old hardware store nail bin that Bob found in the basement of a building in Mount Vernon, Iowa.  My top is made from bleachers that Bob salvaged from the Cornell College gynasium in MV.  I have 6 original bins that can go on any of my shelves and I am a multipurpose work island. 

Hi, I'm Ginger!

I'm a great little multi-purpose island with loads of storage and wheels so I can easily be moved.  I'm about 5 foot long with my little seating area and I'm about 37" tall and 33" wide.  My top is easily removable if you would prefer something a little less vintage for a work surface.  

My top was originally a little peninsula in a mid-century kitchen and my base came from a basement of an old building in Mount Vernon where Bob rescued me and rebuilt my sorely abused base.  I'm good as new now and ready to serve... literally!  I'd make an awesome bar for you, or a great cutting table with plenty of room to store your fat quarter stash.
