Lockheed Martin

Paul,
Thanks again for the fabulous table for our meeting room. Prior to the table being installed, this particular conference room was the last room our customers wanted to use for their meetings. The old table wasn’t functional and the look and feel of the room didn’t seem to facilitate conversations. Once the new table was installed, this meeting room turned into our most requested space. Instead of finding alternative venues, customers are contacting us earlier in their planning phases to make sure they are able to secure the meeting room for their event. Thanks for turning our “dull” space into our most requested meeting room. We look forward to future business with you.

The contractor called me after you delivered everything and told me it was the most beautiful furniture he had ever seen. I can’t wait to see the whole room finished – I will send you pictures when I can get them. Thanks for all of your efforts.

The table is great! When the Dean walked in the room, she said “this is exactly what I wanted.” You don’t get that from her….

The Circuit Court for Prince George's County, MDWorking with Paul Downs has been a great experience! Our project required a conference table that seats 35 people. None of our furniture vendors were able to accommodate our needs as it related to the conference room table. The time limit on our project was looming and we were getting discouraged. So out of frustration we Googled “large conference tables” and found Paul Downs. What an amazing find! We talked, visited his workshop (he had preliminary designs ready upon our arrival based on our conversation), we exchanged ideas and like magic, less than two months later, we have a conference room table that simply takes your breath away. The work product is amazing! The craftsmanship and creativity is unbelievable. We could not be more pleased.

24′ Keystone table, 16′ boat table:

I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Downs Cabinetmakers on two occasions over the past 6 months. Choosing a company that builds structures based upon Web site photos and phone contact is a bit risky, especially when the item is a large wooden conference table costing over $20K and the need to ascertain quality workmanship and ease of conducting business is key. As in most cases, on our first encounter, we were under the gun to make a decision in order to meet our time line so after a few back and forth phone calls, exchange of drawings, and sample wood types, we took a leap of faith and banked on Paul Downs.

We were not disappointed in our decision. In fact, the entire transaction more than met our expectations. The table (24 ft long) was exquisite! The quality was superb, the delivery was on time, the assembly was quick and painless, and the interactions with Paul Downs were perfect. Although it’s difficult to believe, doing business with Paul Downs Cabinetmakers was flawless and his product is of the utmost highest quality. When I was asked to source another conference table a few months later, I did not even consider other vendors. I contacted Paul Downs and ordered a second table. The table arrived yesterday, right on schedule. It is – you guessed it, exquisite!

It is very easy for me to offer a positive testimonial for Paul Downs. If you want the highest quality with the least amount of hassle doing business with a consummate professional, Paul Downs is your cabinetmaker!

14′ x 5′ boat shaped table:

 

Everyone who sees the new flame cherry conference room table is in awe of its beautify and function. The first compliment came from the office furniture company that installed the table – they couldn’t believe how thoughtfully designed and easy it was to put together. And the custom hatches with built-in power, USB, cat 5 ethernet, S-video, VGA, and HDMI allow us to easily connect our technology without running cables all over. At first, faculty, staff, and students were afraid to sit at the table because it is so beautiful and they were worried about spills. I told them I purposely spilled red wine on the wood sample and let it sit for over an hour with absolutely no staining, so now everyone asks to use this room first over others that may be available. The best part of the renovation project was that I was able to order an incredibly beautiful handmade table with all the features I required that was actually made in the United States at a price that was comparable to imported assembly line tables. It is clear to me that Paul Downs Cabinetmakers truly believes in the tradition of creating custom-tailored heirloom furniture that will last for generations, and I’m proud to say I have one.
