Our shop and showroom at 20 John Williams Street in Attleboro, MA, closed on January 1, 2020. We will NO LONGER be building custom furniture going forward. Thank you all for supporting our business for the past 46+ years! It has been a joy restoring your antique furniture and creating art furniture from reclaimed antique materials for you and your families. We hope that our life’s work of restoring, salvaging, reclaiming, recreating and creating has brought a smile to you, your families and future generations.
We have stored many boxes and shelves full of antique treasures of all kinds, most of which was purchased in the 1970’s and 1980’s when we were located in Norton, MA. We now have time to unpack those treasures and opened an eBay store in February 2020 called “Pinnacle Pickers”, with an average of 650+ antique pieces for sale! Check it out at
We are posting daily so you just might find a unique antique item for gift giving or to add to your collection! If you or someone you know has antique items they want to sell, please contact Steve via email. Steve is interested in small antique hand tools, furniture hardware (drawer pulls, hinges etc.), barn hardware (strap hinges, barn door rolling hardware), early paper items, photos, Vintage items, etc. It is very helpful if you could email pictures of what you have to sell and Steve will get back to you as soon as he can. We are no longer buying furniture.
The best way to contact us is email at We wish you all good health and joy every day of your lives.

This bench could be the perfect answer to getting your family to sit down and take their shoes off before entering the house!  It would also be great as a low coffee table.  It has a bottom shelf to hold lots of magazines, books, etc. too!  The foundry molds on the ends were salvaged from a RI factory that was being turned into condominiums about 15 years ago.  We salvaged hundreds of foundry molds in various shapes and sizes and managed to make something out of most of them.  Only a few left in our showroom.

Steve's "STUFF" is coming into the showroom daily and it seems there is no end in sight! 

There is a multitude of beautiful old doors from various early homesteads that are great for cupboards or to make into a headboard for a bed.  Barn doors can be resized for that barn slider you've been dreaming about.  We have wood for small projects too.  Decorative antique baskets, pottery, crocks, lighting, tools, etc. for the antique lover in the family.  There is a set of 2 arm and 6 side R.H. Lemieur Windsor chairs for sale that are in good shape.  Fireplace andirons, cast iron floor grates (large and small), architectural salvage, graphotype machine, rustic fireplace mantel beams, factory machine bases and so much more. . .  Don't wait!  First come, first served!

You know what happens when the family gathers for the holidays right?  They seem to hang out in the kitchen where the food smells so good!  But most of the time they end up in the way during food preparation!  What you need is one of our unique, gorgeous center islands as the focal point of the room and a place for the family to gather around to enjoy each others company while giving mom and grandma room to finish the meal prep!!!  We're told fond memories are captured around our kitchen center island and farm tables. 
It always puts a smile on our faces!

IS-42 Antique Reclaimed Birch Top & Metal Factory Base Table Workbench  $1295

IS-39 Island with Metal Piping, Maple Top and Pine Shelf  $1295 
We found this old Metal Piping behind a barn in Cumberland, Rhode Island.  It obviously was used in a factory at one time but it no longer had a top so it was discarded.  We acquired it from the owner and added a top that was originally in the Middleboro, Massachusetts High School science lab.  It is well worn and compliments the metal piping nicely.  Once it was all put together, we decided it needed a bottom shelf made from reclaimed antique flooring from an early home in Wareham, Massachusetts.  After restoring, repurposing and refinishing, this marriage of parts turned into a very serviceable, rugged and beautiful kitchen island!
Measurements:  71 3/8" L x 36" D x 35" H
