Project Update: Mister Jiu's

If you live in San Francisco and haven't heard of Mister Jiu's yet, we want to know how you manage to avoid the news and media coverage. However, if you are in the know, the name Mister Jiu's instantly brings about thoughts of San Francisco's hottest new restaurant. 

Publications like EaterSF, the SF Chronicle, SF Gate, oh and a little paper called the New York Times are all raving about different aspects of Brandon Jew's new spot- and rightfully so! Brandon Jew, the head chef and owner is an insanely talented person who brings quite a crew to China Town to deliver amazing, banquet-style Chinese food. (Take a peek at the menu.)

True Handcrafted was extremely lucky and honored to make some pieces that helped create the space on Waverly Street in the heart of China Town.

Here's a glimpse inside....

Pieces True Handcrafted Contributed:

  • Reclaimed teak table tops for the smaller side tables and long family style tables.
  • Tea-stained oak for the bar face.
  • Blackened steel frame for behind the bar.
  • And the blackened steel table brackets for the high-tops.

Our reclaimed teak finds were sourced from Cross Roads Lumber. For fun- when you do get the chance to grab a reservation, see if you can find the tables that have the old paint intentionally left on the sides of the reclaimed table tops 

We are so appreciative of the opportunity to contribute some pieces we are proud of to this sensational restaurant. 

There is no doubt in our minds that Brandon and the team at Mister Jiu's will be an incredible success.

Reclaimed Teak Coffee Tables for Whole Foods

Coffee tables we recently made for a Whole Foods in the great state of Texas out of teak. This particular batch was re-claimed from some fishing docks somewhere in Indonesia, and before the milling process still bore the bright colors of the small fishing villages it had hailed from.

Reclaimed Teak Wood from Indonesia

One of the batches of teak reclaimed from docks on the coastlines of Indonesia. Found some interesting brands and signatures left by the first people to mill this wood, and luckily were able to keep some of the beautiful original turquoise paint on some of the smaller pieces! We used those in some patchwork tabletops.
