We just received this note from a customer who had purchased a conference table with built in power/data, and matching credenza. It really made our day.
The furniture arrived yesterday. It is unbelievable, and completely exceeded my expectations. I am a very details oriented person, and Monte’s attention to details and use of quality materials is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Things like matching covers over screw holes, routed indentations so the center outlet cup doesn’t hang up on screw holes, grommeted cord pass-throughs and vents in the credenza, routed finger pulls, set screws in the power cups to perfectly adjust their height, soft felt backing on the back of the outlet cup covers so they don’t scratch the glass, and so on. The weight and quality of the materials also deserves note. The 3/4″ scratched glass is beautiful. The steel box tubing and 1/4″ steel pipe used for the outlet cups is substantial. The stuff is weighty, beautiful, and functional. I purchase a lot of high-end “designer” furniture, but none of it compares to this. I literally stumbled across Stoneline Designs doing a web search for a conference table, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my decision to use you guys. In a world of poorly designed, mass-produced, cheaply constructed furniture, you guys stand alone in my opinion. Cutting edge contemporary designs crafted with true artisan hand-made craftsmanship. Rock on Stoneline.

Stoneline Designs recently completed this glass conference table for DuMOL Wines. DuMOL, an estate vineyard in California’s Russian River Valley, wanted a distinctive table for their conference room. We custom designed a table in our Crescent line, with our patterned scratched glass finish for the top and integrated wiring. The wiring is concealed under round grommets for a seamless appearance when the table is not in use.
Stoneline Designs completed this glass conference table for a professional workplace environment firm in Raleigh, North Carolina. The table, from our Crescent line, seats 14 and includes a wiring trough running down the center of the table to provide power and net access for laptops. A sliding cover conceals the wiring when not in use. Our “Patterned Scratched” Glass finish complements the open, spacious feel of the conference room.
Stoneline Designs recently completed this glass conference table for a high-tech professional services firm in the Washington DC area. The client required a table large enough to seat 12, with a sophisticated look. They chose our Crescent line of conference tables with a “scratched” glass top.
We custom designed this office furniture suite for a modern home office. The writing desk, credenza and hutch, all from the Axis line, feature brushed steel and dark wenge stained wood which looks good against the brick wall and hardwood floor. Our patterned “Scratched” glass finish adds a modern flair.
Honed Absolute Black Granite has developed a reputation as a difficult or problem material due to fingerprints showing on the stone. We have even seen columns calling honed absolute black granite a “nightmare” which no one should ever use. Read More
Stoneline’s Benjamin Grey Stone is a warm grey stone from Jerusalem with soft veining in a sweeping pattern over the whole surface. It is an excellent choice for a conference table, executive desk, occasional table or infrequently used formal dining table. Benjamin Grey is a medium hard stone and some scratching can occur. We recommend coasters and placemats to protect your stone table top.
For general cleaning the stone can be wiped down with water, a little soap and a soft sponge. Dish washing soap and warm water will remove fingerprints and most other oily spots. Very stubborn stains can be removed with a bristle scrub brush and cleanser such as Ajax. (This type of cleaning however will remove the luster and the finish will have to be reapplied.)
Repeated washing on highly used table tops will slowly wear off the sealer. The surface may eventually appear duller. For periodic maintenance , we recommend applying another coat of mineral oil. Frequency depends on use but approximately once every two years for an occasionally used dining table.
To reapply mineral oil top coat, mix Watco Natural interior oil finish (Woodworkers Supply 800-645-9292) with 20% Mineral Spirits and apply a thin coat. Wipe off the excess with a clean rag. Buff the surface with a dry rag until there are no puddles or beads of oil. Any oil that dries on the surface will appear glossy and the procedure will need to be repeated. Let dry 24 hours.
Re-Sealing The Finish
If a problem such as a stubborn stain occurs, it may be necessary to re-seal the finish. First wash the top thoroughly with a clean, soft sponge and warm soapy water. (Tough oil stains may need to be scrubbed out with a bristle brush and Ajax.) Use Acetone (or stripper purchased from HMK) to strip the finish only if it is necessary. After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove all residue from the cleanser, as this may effect the finish. Let the stone dry (a fan speeds the dry time). With a large, clean, soft rag, wet the surface with the sealer (use gloves). Apply a thin even coat and wipe up the excess with a clean rag. Any sealer left puddled on the surface will dry glossy. If necessary, reapply after the surface appears dry. A 3rd coat may be necessary if the stone has been stripped.
A Honed (satin) finish with a 1″ hand-tooled border detail is standard on all our Benjamin Grey Stone table tops. Standard Benjamin Grey width is 3/4″ thick (an approximate width due to surface variation in the natural material). Stoneline produces Benjamin Grey table tops in any size up to 60×108″. Larger table tops are constructed in multiple pieces, up to 30′ long.
