I posted photos of these two tables here a couple of weeks ago and these are pretty much more of the same … The last post was mostly about the 20’ table and last Friday we finished the 26’ table. I have siince added more information and pictures regarding the whole process on our dorset custom furniture blog ... check it out there if you’re interested in how a really big table goes together and is designed to be moved to a site 400 miles away when it’s finished …

Another fantastic table Dan. I’m curious what does one of those weigh.

we’re thinking the 26’ table has about 2500 pounds of granite, a couple hundred pounds of steel and a bunch of mdf, plywood, cherry and finish … Would 3500 pounds be unreasonable ??? we don’t have a scale that big

What are the rectangular holes for? Computer cables? Nice table! Glad I don’t have to help load it for delivery.

That’s just sick! (in a good way :-). When someone says “Pass the rolls” they just might actually have to throw them.

Looking over your older projects and posts as well as your web site, I have to say, wow. You’ve done some beautiful work. I hope you sign all your stuff, because I suspect most of it will outlive you, your kids, and maybe longer…

Fantastic custom project Dan. It takes guts to undertake commissions like that, but you did yourself proud as always. Give your crew my regards for such great work too please.

Very impressive looking conference tables. I had an opportunity to make some conference tables this big during my career. It was a lot of fun to figure out how to make them. You sure do some beautiful work. Thanks for posting.

God Bless
