Description

This interesting, industrial veneer press was salvaged from a historic furniture plant in Lexington, North Carolina. The 65.25" convex component is one half of a two-part wood block veneer press. Stout concave and convex presses were used together with steam to mold wooden veneer into specific angles and curves desired in furniture making.

History: This press section was salvaged from a historic furniture plant in Lexington, North Carolina known as Lexington Furniture, Plant 1. Today, Lexington Furniture has consolidated this building's processes with a second plant and are still in business. The oldest parts of LFI Plant 1 date back to 1901 when it was then operated by Dixie Furniture. The piece was salvaged from a section of the plant that was undergoing renovation.

Condition: Very good, solid condition. Authentic and expected dents, dings, scuffs and patina.

The salvage of Lexinton Furniture was featured on season 8, episode 2 of the DiY network show, "Salvage Dawgs".
