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!
