Tuesday Tidbit

Tidbit:  Conrad Grebel is about options. Because of our craftsmen and their unique abilities we are able to create furniture that factory companies cannot. For example, you can create a leg table as small as 36” square and customize it all the way up to 60” wide x 210” long! We are all about you and YOUR space. In addition, choose your leg style, your wood species and your table edge profile…oh, and any color combination, including hundreds of Benjamin Moore paints. What about a matching bench? We can even make benches with the matching table legs! Only Conrad Grebel provides this level of options to give you exactly what you’re looking for!



Custom Black Walnut Table – 48” wide x 210” long with matching benches & leaf cabinet at the end to store the seven 18” leaves.


Quote:   “Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

Fun Amish Fact:  Since the Amish don’t use electricity like most of us do I’m often asked how they use power tools in their woodshops. An Amish shop is able to generate their own electricity via a diesel or gasoline engine. This is considered acceptable in the Amish way of life because they’re not pulling electricity effortlessly from a power line.  Instead, they have the inconvenience of generating it themselves with their engines. A typical Conrad Grebel woodshop will have a 300-500 horsepower engine powering enough electricity to run the necessary equipment and tools that are needed. The inconvenience includes ensuring there is enough gasoline on any given day to power the equipment. It’s important that they schedule times to fill the tanks in order to keep the shop from being without power for a time.
