Goings on at the Because We Cannery

Custom Table and 8 Chairs

We did a custom conference table and 8 unique custom chairs for the company Comic Debris .

We collaborated with them on the design, as we usually do with our clients. We designed forms for the 8 chairs and the table, then worked with the client, using illustrator files their designers gave us for the backs of the chairs and the lattice work of the table. The company had specific icons and graphics they wanted to use throughout the pieces, so we worked with them to figure out the best and most cost effective way to achieve the look they were going for.

The large conference table was an especially creative process. The client wanted a way to have a carved look all the way down the legs, and still have the table come in within budget and have structural integrity. To solve this wonderful problem we cut a lattice like pattern out of a 1/4" Maple, then adhered it onto the 3/4" Maple structural legs. It turned out great.

We did a similar lattice piece on the top of the table:

While talking with the client, we came up with the idea to use a piece of sanded acrylic to really pop the lattice work and center piece. It makes for a very dramatic look.

Overall everything came out great. Here is everything together in the Cosmic Debris meeting room.
