    Good morning, everyone, I am looking for some info on the Apple stores Fetzer tables used to display their products. I am currently building a custom desk using their table as a model and was looking for some info dealing with the cable/power management they used under the tables. I have searched heavily and found a few under table pictures, but was looking if anyone had any more info detailing how it's set up. Thanks

    I did their visuals for 8+ years and would be happy to tell you all about the Fetzer tables.

    I seen from the pictures I found online, that there is a coiled power cord up into a "white box" and then it appears it is split into 2 or 3 junction boxes that power 3 outlets in each open space between the supports? I am assuming this info solely from the picture I found online. Are you able to shed some light or detail a bit more of how its all laid out or works?


    Question, is the table top made with all solid maple planks? Or is the top deck mdf? Looks like 4" x 3/4"" planks, but could be MDF?

    Not a fan of pull out keyboard trays, but looks like you did a great job! Any pictures of the cable management etc.?

    That is an awesome background. Took me a while to realise that it was a wallpaper I was just like "why hasn't he got a screen." then I saw the dock. Nice table as well though done a really nice job on it.

    I like the keyboard draw. It allows you to have a keyboard but still have a spot of desk in front of you for an open book or tablet.

    I wish I could do something like that. I don't have the tools or the expertise, though. :(

    Anyway, my big idea is not to have a keyboard pullout, but an underneath shelf sized to fit a keyboard, Magic Trackpad, & Magic Mouse with a glass cutout on top just big enough to see the keyboard. The rest of the desk would be maple or some other material.

    Anybody seen anything like that? I'd probably pay a pretty penny for it. :)

    I have the expertise to make something like that if you seriously want that. I think it'd be a neat idea.

    Nice desk Winty03! Custom made desks are the best.

    Hi! I know this is an old thread but I would like to know more about the electrical wire that comes up from the floor namely the manufacturer or specification that makes the floor box.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you dont mind, would you be able to tell me the length and width of the table and its legs. Also the thickness of the table? Im building something similar in wood shop class.

    Hello! I am working for a refurbishment company and recently we've been asked to fix some of the Fetzer maple tables. I would like to know if there is a course or a manual on how to treat such problems in order to get the best result, we've found bent tables, some damaged parts and also stains that couldn't be removed with common products. Any advice would be helpful!
    Thanks in advance
