This is a 72” x 42” conference table built along with several other items for this client. It features raised panel base with a boat shaped top. I orginally designed and built it with a 3/4” top, but it was not supportive enough, so I switched out the top to an 1 1/2” top. The orginal 3/4” top can be seen in the middle picture.

Keep watching I still have 3 corner desk, 2 laterial file armoires with a connecting desk, a 4 drawer laterial file cabinet, an executive desk, a reception’s desk, a entertainment armoire, and a murphy bed with a fold down desk in this group.

Here is a quick look at some other items. I’ll do a write-up about them later.

Beautiful work!
A murphey bed is not something I would expect to see in a office??

Great work as always, Chris.

By the way, I think every conference room should have a fold-down bed for handling those really tough negotiations. :-)

Great work, Chris. I like the looks of the table better with the thicker top. You’re the king of “transformer furniture” :]

I really like the bed/ desk. Very cool for those times when space is crunched. They look exceptionally nice, Chris! Great job
