I am asking for $1100 or best offer, or trade for vintage man cave stuff, vintage sign, vintage gas pump, car memorabilia, and similar vintage / antique stuff.
If you are interested in this bench please include your phone number in your email.


I am selling this Vintage Dental / Laboratory / Medical Table /Jewelers Desk Work Station. This is a fascinating industrial/commercial-quality piece; it is quite unique and I have never seen anything like it. I think this cabinet was used by a dental prosthetist/technician in the 1930s-1960s but I could be wrong. I would appreciate any information about it as I could not find anything on it online.

It can be used for many applications, such as for a tiny house, boat galley, RV / Airstream trailer, school bus conversion motorhome, as decorative furniture in a medical or dental office, jeweler or silversmith workstation / workbench, or even in your home as part of your kitchen island or kitchenette. It would also be ideal for a home garage or an auto shop office.

This cabinet is missing one side/wall, originally it was probably attached to a higher cabinet or to a wall. You could either make a side panel for it or mount it to a wall. The side/back walls are 1" thick.
The dimensions of this cabinet are as follows: stainless steel top is 37 7/8" x 18 1/2", vertical stainless steel backsplash is 8 1/8" high. There is a power outlet mounted onto the backsplash; it also an air/gas output and what looks like a holder for a torch. The sink is 12" x 9" with a depth of 6 1/4". The sink plug has two settings: if it is closed, you pull it up and rotate to open it. The stainless steel is in decent condition; there are acid (I think) stains on the left side (work area). This can be repolished. There is an adjustable stainless steel lamp mounted onto the top of the backsplash.

The back wall is currently removed. The panel that covers all of the pipes in the area where your feet would go is also removed. This panel has an area to store the lid from the bottom right. The drawer on the left has a metal box with a wooden face. Next to it are the two gas/air control knobs. Underneath the sink, where the two doors are, there is soap dish and a storage container for napkins. Underneath this area, where the removable lid is, there is a spot for a tool chest. The tool chest is an 8-drawer Gerstner with various dividers; its dimensions are 15" wide, 9 3/4" deep, and 15 1/2" tall. The bottom drawer has a lock; I do not have the keys. When you push in the bottom drawer all the way, the rest of the drawers all automatically close. When the tool chest is inside its storage area, the lid does not fit over it. You can only shut the lid when there is no tool chest inside; this may be because the technician would take the tool chest with them after work. On the bottom, there is a toe kick area for the hot/cold water control pedals. Also included is aluminum trim for all sides of the bottom of the cabinet.

On the right is a door for the garbage container. Behind the sink is the hole where you would throw away any trash. To the left of this is a removable tray and container for drying washed parts. When you remove the garbage container, you can see an area where you would store the gas/air tanks.
All mounting hardware is included in addition to the stainless steel outlet cover.

The overall dimensions of this entire piece are: top is 37 7/8 x 18 1/2", total depth, including the backsplash and the very back panel of the cabinet is 22 5/8". Its height from the floor to the sink top is 37", its total height with the backsplash is 45 1/2".
