SOLD- industrial metal cabinet/desk - $475
cle elum, washington, population 1,865. located at the foot of the cascade mountains, this town serves as the gateway to a vast wilderness area- an outdoor recreation paradise. it's also the home of the historical telephone museum, the eagles santa breakfast and holiday bazaar, harvest moon feast and halloween parade, and countless other delightful, interesting surprises. cle elum is also the former home of this magnificent industrial metal cabinet. hauled out of a stock car racer's shop (by two strong men wearing great old wranglers and dusty boots) and loaded into the back of a volkwagen passat, it was driven straight to seattle where it hopes to find its new purpose in life. this thing is really great- a true, one-of-a-kind cabinet: made for storing tools, food, pencils, hair products, your postcard collection, napkins, old cell phones, whatever. who cares if it was custom built for a stock car racer's needs- it's ready to serve YOUR needs now. the lower part of the cabinet is all painted steel and all drawers. the removable top part is painted wood, and has a hinged top surface that lifts up to reveal a storage box underneath. it also has a deep drawer of its own. the paint is perfectly beat up, the cabinet structure, however, is not. it's sturdy (and heavy) as an ox. thankfully, this sucker is on casters which allow for easy rolling transport. if you're looking for an absolutely unique storage piece that won't be replicated anywhere else, you'd better jump on this one. perfect for home, office, or commercial use. dimensions are 52"H x 26"W x 20"D.
