Custom Conference Table Story – Gallaudet University

We first received an email in 2012 asking about a conference table from Gallaudet University. In their own words:

“Gallaudet University is the world leader in liberal education and career development for deaf and hard of hearing students. The University enjoys an international reputation for its outstanding programs and for the quality of the research it conducts on the history, language, culture, and other topics related to deaf people.”

We later learned that the table was in commemoration of a much beloved visionary sports leader from Gallaudet and would have a place of honor in their athletic facilities. We were able to narrow down their conference table needs to a 20-foot boat table made with cherry solids.

Throughout the course of the conversation, they decided to put the school logo in the center to really make the table stand out. The entire process took about 8 weeks – from initial email to delivery. We were thrilled to document the building process for them and were very glad to be on-site to document the table fully installed.
