Get your Maker On.

All right, everyone is getting in on the Maker scene...
To help you out, 522 industries is introducing the Analog Firebox. Its just like our original firebox but now in Analog! If you are into making things and just starting out, might as well try your hand at making a truly worthwhile project.  You need a bottle of wine, (you can substitute a couple of beers, bourbon or even Bubbly water) some wood, kindling, paper, some matches, the 522 industries analog Firebox™ and a few friends. Make a small stack in the middle of the Firebox™, starting with the paper, then add kindling and top that off with the wood. (Oak is great) Next, light the paper with the match, and watch the magic.  Now open your libations, delight your friends and feel the warmth of the fire you you have just made! Congratulations! You are a true Maker! The 522 Analog Firebox is made of 3/16" A588 Cor-ten steel so it will weather nicely in your yard. If that wasn't enough there is a handy storage area for spare parts! You know.. because we care! Call us for pricing!

In case you missed it

I'm sure most of you saw this during the San Francisco Living AIA home tour in Sept. But just in case you were out of town or hiding under a rock or something, here are a couple shots of the Winfield Residence in SF.  She was the Belle of the Ball if you ask me..the house was designed by Husband and Wife Architects Ted Arleo and Michelle Kriebel and built by our friend Blair Burke and his fantastic crew....Follow the links to more pictures of the house... I seemed to have been fixated on our stair. We helped Architects Ted and Michelle design their stair.. we can help you too...just give us a ring.






All work and no play...can somtimes lead to a great dinner...

But... you should have fun while you cook... please.. or do it in style at least. That's it, if you can't have fun, do it in style. And do it on a 522 Industries kitchen work table. Do it tonight.
Well, I'm sure these people are having fun while doing it in style as well...introducing a little work table styled after one of our more favorite Months of the year...it is after all the early spring months where inspiration comes from...huh?  We were lucky enough to work with Regan Baker Design for one of their clients on this beautiful work table...and hey if you need furniture let us know, this butcher block top on hot rolled steel base or at least something similar to it can be yours. Just give us a ring.




The Eastern Span


I know, I know.... we all feel it.  I hope you made it across one last time.  I made a special trip with the family and took in the bay lights as well... it was good.  If you start to feel nostalgic compose yourself and head over to our square site and pick up a T-shirt. They are black American apparel and we are going with soft water based inks, you know because we care... they have our new Eastern Span logo on the front and the old 522 on the back be sure to let us know what size when you check out.....oh hey, if you need some metalwork let us know... we still do that as well.

Glassy and classy

I don't know.. I guess I just couldn't think of a better title... but it IS glass and it IS classy...and it's just fun to say.....Go on, say it five times as fast as you can....and if you can't say it five times.. just give us a call once.. we can handle it from there...

Clear satin on Hot rolled steel, rift sawn white oak and 1/2" tempered glass... you know the rest...if you are looking for, Mitered cuts, minimal visible welds, no grind marks, counter-bored socket head fasteners and just a damn fine looking rail, you should call us.

Art Work and glass railings...

Looks like the only thing in a frame here is the glass railing.... so we had to make it nice.. cantilevered metal frame holds the top edge of this tempered glass railing. The bottom of the glass was drilled so we could bolt through the glass and into the floor joists...with custom hot rolled spacers to match the railing...call us.. we would be happy to be apart of your collection too...

Simple clean lines

You know, some forget that simple and clean looks great.
That's it... we just had to remind some of you.

The end of the world.. just don't be late for dinner!


So I guess this is it...just make sure you are not late to dinner.  Especially since we just finished up a new dinning for Feldman Architecture. So wash your hands and dig in.. and when you wake up new years morning wishing the world had ended just be thankful for the eggs and coffee on the new breakfast table...

Noe Valley Portal

Uh oh.. Chris Choy is at it again.... take an old house in an amazing neighborhood and blow out the front window to take advantage of the view, sprinkle liberal amounts of modern sexiness throughout and you are left with a masterpiece....well, this is what he does... and he does it well. We teamed up with Chris on his latest endeavor and it didn't last a week on the market... check it out here. We helped him out, and we can help you out too.  Planning on renovating?  Give us a ring. We sprinkle well.









Office Supplies....



Time to get organized around here...with the brand NEW 522 rolling file cart.  Hot rolled steel with a clear satin finish and cool solid walnut wood dowels shelf below for all you extra office supplies.... check it out and order today.  We can have you organized for tax season.





Get your shelf in order....


You have to be.. tidy.  I'm just saying.  We just finished up some kitchen cabinet doors for a client in Piedmont CA.  Two words. Clear glass.  Sends shivers down you spine doesn't it.  Go on look in your pantry....I can wait... It was a mess wasn't it. Look below and wonder at the tidiness. We can do this for you and if you are not THIS tidy we can use some translucent glass. Call us we can put your cereal in order.


Step across the void

Well no longer a void but a path to understanding and knowledge.  We just completed a bridge for a client on the other side of the hill... gosh it's nice over there.. all the trees and hills...anyway they had no way to get to their office/study.  We have now bridged the gap to understanding, well at least the gap to where they are going to have their computer...Now it might be easier for the kids to get their reports done....Hot Rolled steel I Beam and railing with anodized aluminum grating. Have a void? We can fill it... give us a ring....



the office party.....

 Feldman Architecture just moved into their new digs in Downtown SF...right down the street from Farnsworth labs, you know the guy that invented and patented the first operational all-electronic "television system" on September 7, 1927.. yeah that guy... well, the creative people at Feldman are working hard as well and we were lucky enough to build some sliding doors for their conference room... check them out when you are at their office planning your dream. We would be happy to build some for you... just give us a ring... or ask Jonathan he has our number. Oh, all hot rolled steel, mitered and welded from behind with both clear and translucent glass...all hot rolled steel finished with a clear satin finish... and we never grind...please save the mill scale.




Rockin the Moroccan


Just finished up a railing in Piedmont... The house has a bit of Moroccan flair so the typical clean modern rail was not in the playbook.  Working directly with the homeowner and designer we came up with something that would match the architecture of the home and the needs of the client...hand hammered top cap by our friends over at Alchemy Metal works gave it texture and depth that a basic top cap wouldn't have had. We custom make each rail to match the architecture of every home we work on. We like to add value to your home instead of adding an eyesore.  We did it for them... we can do it for you.  Go on pick up the phone.

Francophile


No not James Franco...
 but he sure is funny, and I can't wait for the prequel to the Wizard of Oz that is coming soon, but the Frenchie love kind... you know sauce, wine and cheese and of course my buddies Francois's mother Marie Antoinette's "bœuf aux carottes".... That woman can cook. You know, dinners outside in the garden and the camembert pulled out of the BBQ all melted and gooey for dessert...sorry... I got distracted... ANYWAY we just built a new table for a wonderful client in the Peninsula and came up with these legs kind of similar in shape to the Eiffle tower... Solid 2" water jet hot rolled steel with a dark patina and a walnut live edge table top... put the cheese down and give us a ring.. we can build one for you as well.
