Gowanus Furniture Co.

We'll be at the Brooklyn Flea at Hanson Place Saturday and Sunday March 3 & 4. Will have the usual wares, as well as a few sweet custom pieces that'll be there for pickup.

If in the neighborhood, do come on by and say hello...

Some Gowanus Furniture cutting boards were featured in the March/April issue of Imbibe. Fantastic! Imbibe is pretty sweet... The Kentile was the staff pick, and the Lime Board also got a nice shout-out. Can see more coverage on the Press page.

I'll post occasional pictures of new projects and news on this blog, but there's so much more... (Seriously, my head is beginning to hurt...)

For the very latest, check out new pictures from the shop via Instagram [gowanusfurniture] (which flows to Facebook, as well as Tumblr).

Twitter too, of course, for to let us know what you think and to see more of what we're working on.

Pinterest is also a whole lot of fun - wow - really enjoying seeing what our followers also like. And we can show more of what inspires us. 

Follow/friend/like and let us know what you think.

Simple hardwood shelves you can hang anywhere, - both easy to install and can hold a good bit of weight.

These have been in the works for a while, and finally happy with this design. Take a look at the product page here to get your own. This model is $240.

It's two pieces of walnut, with a spline running the length of the miter joint, as you can see below. This makes it quite strong, and allows it to ably serve as a bookshelf.

The shelf has two contrasting maple stripes, and the front edge is softened a bit.

I really like the bottom part of the shelf. I shaped it to resemble the trunk of the tree. More uneven and organic, without any sharp angles, and all sanded very smooth. You want to touch it.

To get it on the wall, it hangs via a simple French cleat. You attach the included strip of wood to the wall (wherever you like with the appropriate anchors), and then the shelf just hangs on it. Really simple, really elegant.  It's the same way that heavy cabinets are often hung in kitchens.

This version is 18" x 10" and about 7"/8" thick. Other custom sizes are available. Send an email with any questions or requests and look for more shelves coming soon. I post most pictures of works in progress to Facebook and Tumblr.

See all the latest Instagram pics and some other stuff too at http://gowanusfurniture.tumblr.com/. That and http://www.facebook.com/gowanusfurniture are the best sources for cool pics of in-process pieces as we try out new ideas... 

Def looking forward to seeing some of the responses from folks to new work.


Made this one a little while ago - designed to fit perfectly over a stove, and slide along the grill left or right as needed. I like it as the wood is just gorgeous. It's all walnut and maple, but such variety within each species. By taking some time to look at it all and consider it, I was able to do some very cool things with it, I think.

This is the key. Real wood is much more interesting than fake wood. Taking the time to lay it out so the wood tells a story is one of the things that differentiate what we do from similar products.
