Tuesday Tidbit

Tidbit:  Conrad Grebel is about function.  Our pedestal tables come standard with dual gear mechanisms making it easy for one person to open and close their Conrad Grebel table with ease.  Our leg tables come standard with all wooden glides.  These allow a table to be opened wider than pedestal tables.  For example, double pedestal tables can be made up to 120” (10’) long while leg tables can be made up to 210” (17.5’) long! 

Gear slides are standard on our pedestal tables

Fun Amish Fact:  Earlier this morning one of our families who makes chairs for Conrad Grebel stopped in to deliver a homemade meat and cheese plate to us for Christmas.  It was a wonderful gesture!  We chatted a while here in our offices while their driver waited in the van outside.  Very often the Amish will hire a driver who will take them on longer distance trips (in this case, over 20 miles from the woodshop to our office).  If it’s a close distance horse and buggy will work just fine…or even a horse and sled in our current weather!  In our area of northern Indiana there are several people who own passenger vans who the Amish can call at any time for assistance.  Usually retired from traditional work, these drivers make time to get the Amish to where they need to go for a small fee…kind of like an Amish taxi service.
