How Conference Tables Are Made: Cutting a Granite Table Top
One of the fun thing about being at Stoneline is getting to see beautiful tables take shape from raw materials. Yesterday, our artisan Bart (with help from Mace) cut a boat shaped granite conference table top, 66" wide x 16' long, from three pieces of absolute black granite.
The process took over two hours, including careful measuring and taping to make sure the cuts were correct. In this video, watch it happen in one hundred seconds:
Cutting the sides is only the first step. Now the edges must be beveled, border sandblasted, ends cut to a similar curved shape, and finally the table, from our Vector line, will have a decorative design scored into the top. The pedestals will be made of cherry wood, and will receive just as much care and attention to detail as the top.
