The Legacy of Gerstner’s Dayton Industrial Style

Company History

Celebrating 118 Years of Quality and Style

Dayton Industrial

Dayton Industrial Style refers to a distinctive furniture design originating from the industrial boom in Dayton during the early to mid-20th century. This style seamlessly combines elements of Shaker, Craftsman, and Industrial designs, creating a unique blend of old-school charm and modern functionality. One example of the style are the wood machinist chests attributed to Harry Gerstner.

What Our Customers Are Saying…

Simply WOW… I saw this site and fell off my chair. Your wood chests/boxes are some of the best I’ve run across.

I have built three Gerstner kits in the past year and find it an excellent way to get into the Gerstner family on a budget. The B35 (now 1605) is my favorite. The five drawers are nicely sized for my measuring tools with enough depth for thicker squares. The assembly was easy once I viewed the online videos and laid out all the pieces... Great fun.
