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.
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.
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.
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.
Now off to the finish room.
Meanwhile – table legs are being built to support this massive conference table. Photo’s courtesy of Chronicle Mill Works.
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.
We will add more pictures after the project is completed. Walker Woodworking and Wendi Gragg did several more projects at this site including kitchen, bathrooms and more. We can’t wait to see the finished project throughout and to share it online. Stay tuned!
Featured Wellborn Remodel Project
Are you on a budget for your kitchen remodel?
Wellborn offers a great product at a great value for you.
Find out how semi-custom cabinets worked well for this homeowner’s budget and why she chose Wellborn cabinetry.
Greenbrook Design Featured Project:
Our clients had debated about remodeling their kitchen. Deciding factors such as budget and time frame were significant for the homeowners during the planning phase as they decided if they wanted to move forward with the project. Knowing their budget from the beginning of the design phase made designing so much more effective. It’s like having the final piece of a puzzle that makes the picture complete. Because the communication was open from the beginning, our designer was able to tailor the needs and give the customer what they needed – within their budget.
We asked: What are the top 3 reasons to remodel their kitchen?
1. Not enough room
2. No cabinet space
3. Tight areas for a growing family
With a family of three, plus additional children, family, and friends visiting and eating together was the inspiration and main focus of this kitchen design.
This was not their forever home, but more kitchen space was needed for a growing family. The homeowner also wanted to brighten and open up the space by removing the wall that separated the kitchen from the living room, creating an open floor plan. The island was designed for the family to be able to sit together, as well as to offer more storage and countertop space for preparing meals.
We were able to make budget friendly selections while preserving the homeowner’s request for function and style.
Communication is key to success! In asking the client…
What was more important to you? The budget or the time frame? Her reply;
“I would say both were very important. First was budget because I couldn’t go over a dime! Second, time frame because my husband tore down the kitchen within a day and with a one year old and not having a kitchen is not fun at all. “
We were able to design, order and install this project within the client’s timeline.
Semi-custom cabinets can typically be ordered and shipped within a four-to-six week timeline.
