Sources for inexpensive stainless steel tables.....
I'm re-organizing my kitchen.
Consequently I want to replace my wood cart with a stainless steel narrow table with one or preferably two open shelves.
I heard that buying such table at a medical supply store would be cheaper than a regular kitchen supply store; however, I haven't been able to locate a source yet.
I'm looking for a fairly narrow table (approx 18 through 21" deep x 60" long x 29 through 30" high) so I need either a retailer that has such size available or sells custom sized tables--all this without breaking the bank....any suggestions?
that's very narrow for something commercially produced. an on-line search would be your best bet. i needed a weird size sink when i renovated the kitchen last year, and wound up ordering one from an outfit that supplies hospitals and schools.
you can also check restaurant supply companies near you.
those tables are not expensive, but obviously cutom will jack up the price.
Well, I had the same problem exactly one year ago this month. I was able to find narrow stainless steel tables (approx. 18" deep and 3' long) at Costco for $99.00. You know how it goes with Costco, buy it while it's there, but you might want to try.
Maria, you might try the kitchen supply places along the Bowery, around Delancey St. There's a ton of them, and while I've none to recommend in particular, you're bound to find what you're looking for there.
And from the "why not?" department, try the Salvation Army warehouse on 10th (and 46th?)...vast inventory.
I cannot help out in the price department, but the link below shows some promise. I looked up this outfit back 2 maybe 3 years ago when a friend needed a long and narrow SS utility table with a 6" high back-splash. They made my friend a custom table.
Otherwise would a short, chrome wire shelving unit be considered? It would become a 2 part project if you needed something solid for the top and that part could be possibly formed in metal shops dealing with SS.
My theory is that a 30 H x 60 L x 18 D with 2 (or 3)shelves should run under $70 (or $100) and a SS top around $150. Now don't let the word shelving get in the way as I have wire shelving in my kitchen that I use my mixer off of. I then have extra storage above as I used a 72 inch high model.
Thanks everyone for the great suggestions.
I will try to visit some of the places on the Bowery and see if I can find anything there. Otherwise it's back to the online search.
