    The Late T. Boone Pickens' Ornate Desk Headed to Oklahoma
    Smiley N. Pool/The Dallas Morning News
    For the last 14 years of his life, T. Boone Pickens made and lost billions while seated at his conference room table, a four-pedestal behemoth with inlaid golden cherry and walnut wood.

    An ornate conference-room table where the late legendary oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens made billion-dollar deals and hosted VIPs in his Dallas office is heading to the Oklahoma Capitol.

    Officials at Oklahoma State University announced Wednesday that the 24-foot-long table and 22 leather chairs will be loaned to the governor's office for the next 10 years. A university donor purchased the four-pedestal desk, inlaid with golden cherry and walnut wood, and donated it to OSU.

    Oklahoma's new Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt is an OSU graduate and had inquired about the desk after visiting with Pickens, who died last month at age 91.

    The governor's office currently is being renovated as part of a $245 million project to overhaul the state Capitol.
