goods to go !! available to ship immediately

 12/2014 ... After participating in a number of shows this spring and summer, I have ended up with a small collection of objects that could make someone very happy ...Essentially, I have too many ideas, and now, too much furniture and an urge to make some new pieces ... There is a total mix below ... Some stuff sports its original price tag or close to it cause I still like it and I'm not desperate to see it go.  There are a few pieces mixed in here that are, as they say, 'priced to move' ... Call at 802 867 5541 or email dan@dorsetcustomfurniture.com if you want to discuss any of these pieces.
Click the photos to enlarge them ....Thanks ... Dan
 This is the bench from the 'State of Craft ... 50 Years of Craft in Vermont' show that ran in 2010 at the bennington museum ..

reclaimed oak, steel, paint .. +/- 16 x 54 x 18 high
i have this claro walnut desk, with a drawer and a secret compartment ..

your choice .. it is approximately 36 at the wide point by 80" long .. $3250. plus your choice of base.
