An 18th Century Hard Drive – A Borrowed Blog

At Paul Downs, we marry traditional craftsmanship with high-tech innovation.  We’re proud to use classic woods and techniques with advanced machinery to produce custom conference tables and other office furniture. However, sometimes, it’s just refreshing to take a step back and wonder at the art of woodworking from years past.

On this occasion, we turn to The Nerdist, brainchild of Chris Hardwick. They’ve recently posted this fantastic blog and accompanying video. We keep referring to it as “The 18th Century Hard Drive”

Enjoy this “borrowed blog”!

If you haven’t already, please look through our gallery of custom conference tables. You can choose any of these designs as a starting point for your project, or you can submit your own designs. For help designing your custom conference project, contact us today at 484-680-7102 or
