Conference Table Project

Conference Table Project

Concept & Design

A few weeks ago, Wendi Gragg asked our Designer Brandon Fitzmorris to find her a table for twenty-four, specifically a conference for seating up to twenty-four people for one of her clients. She also wanted a smaller eight-foot table for a smaller conference room. Once Brandon found a table source, Travis Walker, our company owner made a special trip with Wendi to select the perfect slab for her client.

In search of the perfect top.

Pictured above: This large slab had to spend 1 month in Dry Chem. Pictured below: see the difference of sizes. The 8-foot table is sitting on top of the 17-foot table.

Travis makes special trip to pick-up slabs.

Time to sand, finish and find some table legs. Through social media connections, we found a source close to home to design and build the table legs for this project. A collaboration with Chronicle Millworks is born. Pictured below is the design concept for the metal legs.

Sanding

In order to sand the top on the 17 foot table – we had to bring in a floor sander. In this video watch as Jonathon Champion, from Champion hardwoods unveils the top layer of the slab.

 

Once the top layer was sanded – much work had to be done by a hand sander and to the edges of the top.

Final sanding before finish.

Now off to the finish room.

 

Table had 3 layers of finish applied.

Next – table legs are ready for powder coating.

At Walker Woodworking – we have completed the finishing for both tables and now it’s time to deliver to the job site. We don’t have the space to store such a massive piece of wood.

Next – a four minute video of the delivery at the job site and getting this table into the room.

Next up Final Assembly – Chronicle Mill Works delivers the table legs and we show up for extra manpower.

Travis is very proud of this completed project!

After all, taking on a 17 foot conference table was no easy task.

Wendi Gragg, Interior Designer is happy as well. This was her vision brought to life.
