40628-29 through - 38. 1960s-era dining chairs in Hollywood Regency style. We believe these chairs are by a known designer, but no maker’s mark appears, possibly because of a re-upholstery job done many years ago. Bent wood (possibly teak) with darker wood (possibly mahogany). Very much in the style of Wormley. Two arm chairs available and eight standard dining chairs.
We have a very strong selection of file cabinets in a variety of colors and styles. Photo represents a random sampling of available items as stock changes regularly.Please note: most file cabinets we have do not come with keys. If we receive the cabinet with keys, we tape them to the top or side of the cabinet. If you find a locking cabinet without keys, don’t despair—just tell any locksmith the alphanumeric code around the keyhole, and they can cut a new key for you for a nominal charge. UW Surplus does not accept returns of file cabinets that you thought had keys but did not.
$75.00 each (cases w/o keys); $130.00 (case w/ keys)
41596-57, -58, and -59. Because everything looks nicer, rarer, and more expensive once placed inside a glass display case, we bring you three such beauties (shelving included but not pictured). One of the cases comes with keys—for your extra nice/rare/expensive stuff like Star Wars action figures and original Atari joysticks (hey, SOMEDAY). Cases measure 5’ x 20” x 6’H.
39864-164, -165, and -166. Now available are the last hickory table & chair sets from the late, great Terry Hall. Made by the venerable Old Hickory Furniture Company of Shelbyville, Indiana, each set includes one table and four chairs with padded seats.
41821-32, -33, -34. We’ve seen our share of standard wooden tables with metal legs, but nothing like these heavily-lacquered tables. While there are a few surface scuffs to parts of the tabletops, the lacquer is so thick that a good buffing ought to take care of things. Each table measures 54” x 3’ x 3’H.
Assorted colors and sizes, with prices ranging from $15 to $50. Photo represents a random sampling of available items as stock changes regularly. Please note: most file cabinets we have do not come with keys. If we receive the cabinet with keys, we tape them to the top or side of the cabinet. If you find a locking cabinet without keys, don’t despair—just tell any locksmith the alphanumeric code around the keyhole, and they can cut a new key for you for a nominal charge. UW Surplus does not accept returns of file cabinets that you thought had keys but did not, so be sure to check first!.
41531-14, -15, and -16. Okay, here’s the T: you may detect little drain holes at the angled ends of these otherwise unassuming metal tables, so before you turn them into steampunk dining tables just know that these were originally autopsy tables, so, yeah. Measures 30” x 7’ x 3’H.
We have just a few more very nice, oak wood rolling pedestal drawer sets available, and we’ve set a new, lower price for them! So if your memories of Mercer Hall require a memento, these are some of the last items from that building.
41776-2. What sets this metal typewriter table apart is its unusual trapezoidal shape. It’s also in very nice condition and sports a very agreeable shade of grey that we think really brings out your eyes. Measures approximately 14 x 35 x 27”H with its leaves extended.
41401-48. While it came to us listed as “TV Stand,” we promise you can put all sorts of things on it—computers, stereos, aquariums, gumball machines, that awkward bust of Martin Van Buren you made entirely out of old chewing gum in the 5th grade. Measures 36 x 34 x 33”H and has lockable wheels.
41558-22. For the public speaker on the go, this great wooden lectern will help make any flat surface into your very own stumping station. What good is pontification unless you have a proper lectern, really? Measures 16” x 2’ x 17”H.
We’ve now got MANY wood bed sets from the Terry Hall demolition project, and they work great as loft beds or as standard-height beds depending on how you choose to put them together. The bed featured in the photo has been put together in the mid-level position (there is one higher and one lower set of positioning holes in the frame). Very sturdy, very nice light-toned wood frames offered with slats, hardware, and mattresses.
41573-18 through -35. Okay, so these things are, well, we’re just not sure. On the one hand, they’re sort-of cabinet/ stand deals. On the other hand, they could be for laptop projectors because of the odd-angled top levels. On the third hand, they seem like they should have wheels but don’t. We could keep adding hands, but none of them will wave off the “huh?” We know our customers are very clever repurposers, so we’d love to see what you do with these. Measures 41 x 14 x 43”H.
41596-1, -2, -3, —44, -43, -45, -46, -47, -48, -49, -50, -52, -53, -54, and -55. These are weird and awesome: folding chairs in wood and metal that are also narrow and tall (42”-high). Sure to go fast!
Back in stock!
Among the first arrivals from the Lander Hall demolition project are these incredibly nice wood framed bulletin/ tackboards that each feature a carved, Husky-purple-ized “UW” in the top center. The photo shows front and back—boards may be installed using the bevel-boards on their backs or via convention drill/ hook means. Your semi-humble UW Surplus item writer has two of these boards at his desk and can attest they’re extra spiffy.
measures 4’ x 30”H.
