It was a little late on delivery, but well worth the wait. My side table is gorgeous and you just can't beat the price!

Really amazing piece, especially for the price. Michael was also great to work with in designing my particular desk. Only reason it's not a 5 is that putting the desk together is a little more difficult than expected.
I wanted to be my own boss.
I had always wanted to do my own thing. I started my Etsy shop in 2012 after seeing all the beautiful items available here. I made a couple pieces and when they sold I made more. Once I got busy I had to quit my day job. One of the best decisions I have ever made. I had been getting help from my son Casey in the summer and when he got out of school he decided to come help me full time.
Since then I have added my other son Chris and other helpers as needed. We do this from our shop next to our home. We try every day to put a personalized touch to every piece of wood we make into something for your home or business. We want our pieces to last a lifetime and be something to be proud of.
Please let us know if there is anything we can make for you.
Around the web
Owner, Maker, Designer
I am a native Texan born and raised in Dallas. Moved to the country in 1990. Started woodworking in 2011. I went full time in May of 2013. I have made my own shop at home and have my sons working for me as well.
Assistant, Shipper, Creator
Casey, my youngest at 19, works in the wood shop with me as well as preparing pipes and fittings and keeping shipping stocked with materials. He also builds hairpin legs. Casey will eventually run the business side of our shop.
Chris my 21 year old son runs the shipping department. Chris packages each item carefully and expertly to keep them safe on their shipping journey to our customers. Chris is good at what he does and is very dependable.
Brandon makes all our steel legs for our tables and also cleans and clear coats pipes and fittings for clothing racks. He also does some work in the wood shop from time to time.
Tracy is the go between for shipping and metal working. Tracy makes sure we have the correct pieces for each order before it's due. He gathers those pieces and makes sure they are ready for shipping. He also packages table legs, pipes, fittings etc.
We recycle as much material as possible and use only materials that we know and trust. We do not use pallets as some are treated with chemicals you do not want in your home. Our stains and clear coats have no harmful chemicals.
Our shipping materials are all cardboard and paper and biodegradable tape. We love our environment and live our lives to sustain it.
We make clothing racks, store fixtures, tables, desks, coffee tables, end tables, shelves and many other items. If you do not see what you are looking for please feel free to ask. All of our items are currently made to be shipping friendly. therefore we do not make anything longer than 59" or wider than 20" at this time.
We hope you like our items and have a wonderful experience shopping on Etsy.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
We ship UPS ground for all packages. We have a daily UPS pickup at 5pm central time. Most of our shipping polices are reflective of UPS policies. Once we have an item ready to ship we will weigh it and make a shipping label for it. We post the tracking number to the Etsy order page on your specific order. That triggers an email from Etsy to you notifying you that the order has shipped and of the tracking number. Once you have the tracking number you can click on it in the Etsy orders page or click through to UPS for detailed information about the location of your package. UPS usually has a date that they expect to deliver the package. If you have any questions about shipping please ask us. If they are UPS specific questions you can call 1-800-742-5877 with your tracking number and they will be able to help you.
Below you will find specific shipping topics and our policy on them.
***** SHIPPING PRICES FOR CONTINENTAL U.S. ONLY *****
If you are in Alaska or Hawaii you will need to get a shipping quote before proceeding with purchase. Our items are large and heavy and shipping to AK and HI are higher than the lower 48 states. We reserve the right to cancel any order that does not meet our guidelines for shipping in the U.S.
SCHEDULED TO SHIP BY DATE
Every item we ship has an Etsy estimated ship date. This date is on your copy of the order. Just click "you" then "purchases and reviews" then scroll down to the order. The scheduled to ship by date is at the top. Understand this is not a hard deadline or guaranteed ship date. Our items are made to order by hand and vary greatly from day to day. We generally ship before this date. We will also many times ship very early. We will do the best we can to ship on or before the Etsy estimated ship date. However Etsy does not take into account multi piece orders and multiple orders in a short time so the date can't be set in stone. We get lots of large orders from stores. We also get behind during holidays so please understand our Etsy ship date policy. Please feel free to message us anytime for updates on your order.
WRONG ADDRESS ON ETSY
Please make sure your shipping address and email address are correct BEFORE ordering. We do have people on a regular basis who place an order with an old address. We change them on a regular basis. If you have the incorrect shipping address on Etsy, forget to change it or have changed it but it did not go through and the order has the wrong address it is up to you to provide the correct address to us ASAP and to do that through Etsy messages, not email. If you do this we will confirm that we have the new address. If we ship the item to the address you provided and it's wrong we can re route the item if it's in transit for the cost that UPS charges us. That cost is about $15. That will need to be paid before we re route the item. If the item is delivered to the wrong address for the reasons above it is your responsibility to get it to you as we will no longer be able to have UPS send it somewhere else. At that point UPS will only allow the person who has it to ship it. If the item is returned to us because of the wrong or an incorrect address or it is undeliverable for any reason, getting it back to you will be at your expense.
When an item is shipped we post the tracking number to the Etsy order page to clear the item from our open orders page. This alerts Etsy that the item has shipped and Etsy will email you the confirmation of shipping and the tracking number. This email will go to the email address Etsy has on file for you. But if you do not get it or do not check that email often you may miss it. In that case please message us here for the tracking number.
***** OUR UPS DAILY PICKUP IS AT 5PM CENTRAL TIME *****
We have a daily pickup Monday thru Friday at 5pm central time. This applies to regular business days as UPS does not pick up on weekends or federal holidays.
ITEMS DAMAGED IN SHIPPING
When an item is received you need to inspect the package for damage. If there is damage please have the UPS driver note it immediately and if possible open the package while the driver is there and inspect the contents. If there is damage to the contents you must take plenty of picks of the damage to the item and/or the packaging. You also need to save the packaging as UPS will often times send someone to see the damage in person. UPS requires pics of damage to item and package to process a claim. In the event of a damaged item we will file the claim with the pics and correct documentation and UPS will act quickly. We will then ship a replacement item or an entire replacement piece and may or may not ship the old item back. It depends on the shipping cost and whether the item can be repaired or not.
MULTIPLE PIECE ORDERS
When we get multiple piece orders we reserve the right to add time for each additional piece in the order. Generally during the year we do not need any extra time. However peak times of the year have us shipping right at the "scheduled to ship by" date on the order. In those times we may need extra time to complete large orders. Any order of 3 pieces or more would fall under this policy. When we do orders like this we will generally start shipping pieces as they are completed. We generally need an additional two days per item when we are busy.
ORDERS SHIPPING LATE
We generally do not notify customers if an item is going past the Etsy estimated ship date as we have many open orders at any given time. But if you want to know the progress of the order at any time please message us here on Etsy with the order number and we can tell you where the item is in our process and estimate when it will ship. Feel free to message us any time. Generally we answer Etsy messages in the morning, during lunch and in the afternoon. Sometimes we are able to reply sooner. If you do not hear back from us within 8 hours or overnight it means we simply forgot to get back to you. In that case please send is another message.
We do not do rush orders for an extra cost. To do that a shop would have to put your order ahead of someone who ordered before you. We don't think that is fair whether it's paid for or not. We also simply don't believe a shop would use overtime, or spare time to work on just that one order to rush it. When it comes down to it someone gets their order placed ahead of someone who ordered earlier. We do often work orders into gaps in our schedule. Just let us know if you have any requests and we can see if we can help.
If any of our shipping policies are unclear or you have a question feel free to message us here on Etsy at any time.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are considered final with exceptions. If we believe we can re sell the item we will most likely take it back. However we reserve the right to refuse a return for any reason. We want you to be happy with your purchase while retaining our rights under Etsy terms of service. Understand that you will need to contact us for instructions for returning an item.
Damaged items can be returned by contacting us for instructions specific to the item. If you have a damaged item we may choose to send a new item, part for an item etc on a case by case basis. If you have an order with a missing piece please let us know and we will send the piece immediately. See the shipping policy above for returning a damaged item.
We refund an item according to the policy above. If the item is a return we refund the item price only. Shipping is not part of a refund. Refunds are made through the Etsy orders page. We click refund and the amount and Etsy handles the funds transfer. We have no access to credit cards or accounts.
Additional policies and FAQs
**** The ship date for every order is on the order page of your Etsy account. Just click "you/purchases/orders
We can and will give you a different ship date on custom items. This is also is not a guaranty or a promise. However we will work tirelessly and work over time and weekends to meet special deadlines.
If you order multiple pieces we may exceed the Etsy estimated ship date up to two days per extra item past the first one.
We ship to the address on the order unless you give us a different address in an Etsy message. If any item is returned by UPS for any reason we will message you with that information. We can re ship the item. If an item is left here more than 30 days it is considered abandoned and will be sold.
*** On some of our racks in pictures we show them with steel corner braces. These are not standard pieces. We no longer use these pieces.

Frequently asked questions
How much is shipping?
Shipping for any item in our shop is just above the item's description (when viewing on a PC) and can be accessed by clicking "shipping and policies" There you will see the shipping cost and lead time.
Our assembly instructions are all online and available at www.vintagesteelandwood.com/INST.html
Assembly is easy and can be done in 15 minutes or less on most of our pieces with a single tool. A #3 Phillips head screwdriver is all that is needed.
Where can I find the stain choices?
Our stain choices with pics can be found at www.vintagesteelandwood.com/stains.html
Why are our clothing racks better than others on Etsy?
1. Stability, the bases on our racks are 14" wide and that is wider than other shops very narrow bases. Ours are much more stable.
2. Pipe size, ours are 3/4" with a diameter of 1&1/4" vs their 1/2" with a diameter of 7/8" Our fittings are larger and thicker and much nicer.
3. Our wood is made from pieces. This allows us to use better wood. Other shops use a single piece of 2x12 (1&1/2"x11&1/2") that's usually Yellow pine which does not look good stained.
4. More choices. We have more available lengths, styles and stain choices. We have more in stock items and far more made to order options.
5. Quality. Our wood is planed, sanded with three grits, has edges beveled and corners rounded. Clear is sanded between coats. No snags anywhere.
