Hard to get good pics with all the light coming through the glass!

The center wall is painted metalic white.
The wood is Walnut.
The glass top is 1” thick. The whole unit is 12 1/2’ long.

Not much more to say.
Be glad to answer any questions if any.

Amazing job. Such clean lines. How is the glass supported along the wall? Pretty much all of the joinery looks like it floats.

I don’t like it, but you really did a nice job. The smaller, wooden wedge looks like the kid’s table next to the glass adult seating area.

Thanks Rich,
The glass sets into a 1” deep recess.

I feel like a real turd now :)

It’s beautiful work. I guess I don’t understand the concept of the design, which is no reflection on you of course. But, having spent more hours than I like to think about in my previous life sitting at conference tables, I just don’t get the dynamic. It’s supposed to be about teams, but that clearly divides the group. Like I said, the people at the smaller wooden section will seem like they don’t really belong with the group at the larger glass section. I do sense a real piece of California though, in that there is no head to the table. However, if you want that effect, go King Arthur and make it round.

Now, on the other hand, if this is a law office and you need to separate the legal team from those being deposed, or maybe in a divorce case the husband sits on one side of the wall and the wife on the other… But in those cases, you’d want a hidden bulletproof panel that rises up out of the wall portion automatically.

Plus, and this is just my personal preference, I’d add cones of silence, a la Maxwell Smart.

Thanks ralbuck,

Rich, I probably shouldn’t have called it a conference table. (it’s just so big)
This is pretty much just a desk in a home office. I figure the designers got the look from the rug.

That changes everything. Except for the cones of silence.

Not so sure about that. The first impression I got, was that they were trying to chase the table design with the carpet and they were trying too hard.
Actually….thats not true…the first impression I got was that the carpet looks like shit! lol! It’s very distracting and really takes away from the desk.

I do not think the carpet looks like sh… but I do think it distracts from the pictures. When taking photographs of ANYTHING, you need to de-clutter the background so the focus of the pic is on the object you photograph—NOT everything else.
Your problem with the pic isn’t the glass, the problem with the pic is that busy carpet. It competes for attention.
If the carpet was to be the focal point, then get rid of the desk, and vice versa… I’d like either of them by themselves.
More light might help, but the main problem is competition for attention.

A cool project, just wish you could get better pix.

The Daily Top 3 is a Farce, almost an insult sometimes!

Underdog, I’m not very good at taking pictures.

Have your say...
