    I make a 96" (2.5m) dining table from a slab of salvaged Oregon Black Walnut and epoxy resin. A few ups and downs through this build, but in the end, it all works out. I hope you enjoy the build, let me know if I can do better.

@Ken Reynolds the wood should not char first if it's encased in epoxy. Charring denotes oxygen presence which that wouldn't have.

To answer your question re: "red hues" in your present table & upcoming dark 'non-red' table. Yes, this table has red hues in it. Being a woodworker in South Texas & deal mostly with mesquite wood which as also a hardwood (3 times harder than oak) & has a reddish-brown hue similar to what I see in your table. Enjoy your videos, explanations, product experiences & tips. Please continue what your doing!! Thanks!

The idea of a tool/shop share database is great! It would really help the new shops that are getting going. I watch these to learn how to make apoxy tables. I would watch a 3 hour workshop over and over. And yes, the table has red highlights. I'm curious to see how you make the sister slab chocolate colored.

The table is absolutely stunning . I simply love seeing tables created from these types of woods , they become a piece of artwork all by themselves. I love seeing the grains in these woods you have chosen and how they suddenly come alive during the end product . In answer to your question at the end of the video , yes there are red hues running throughout the piece you are showing . I would love to see the other piece which is pure brown, I imagine it must be incredibly rich in color .. Beautiful work Sir, beautiful work

Moving the heavy slabs around, have you considered using a "engine hoist". It will save your back a lot of grief later on and might make it easier for you to move them around quicker. just a few soft webbing slings and an extending bar for the slings. Might be worth looking into. Thanks for sharing your work, great job.

Hey Cam, Absolutely beautiful table. Love your channel. For a little help in color based decisions for various builds, Google the colors the client is contemplating and find out what psychological effects they create. For a dining room table that will be used for entertaining, red is definitely your color. Red stimulates hunger, hunger increases the sensitivity of taste receptors which makes food taste better.

Can you give me your advice on using filler to save on epoxy? I have a lot of off cut from the walnut slab I bought. My wife is not a fan of seeing a bunch of small pieces just placed in the larger gaps. I was thinking to just submerge them but I'm not sure the black epoxy can be dark enough that they will not be seen.

Red. About 20 years ago a fork from a forklift fell onto my foot from chest height. (The locking clip mechanism on that fork broke, so when the fork was pulled into a wider position, it never stopped sliding at the next slot & it instead kept going until it fell off.) The fork actually hit both my feet, but the end of the fork that bends to a 90°, is the thickest/heaviest end & that end came straight down on my left foot. I broke a few bones in that foot, but the worst part was when I took off my boot & sock, my big toe was purple & double its normal size. When I barely even touched the toe with my finger, my toe kind of popped. It split under the toenail. Kind of a gory scene. Luckily I didn't lose any toes, but to this day I have a LOT of pain in that big toe! I wasn't wearing steel toe boots at that time. From that moment on, I always wear steel toe boots!! The point of my rambling is this- you will never appreciate how important a single toe really is, until you have an accident & hurt/lose one! A single toe can cause you to lose balance, stability, traction & grip. I cringe every time I see your sandals! You're a grown man & can do whatever you choose to do, but I strongly suggest a nice pair of comfortable work boots, at least on the days when you're lifting heavy items. I've always loved my Wolverines but I also live super close to a Redwings shop & they make great boots as well.

I worked in a foundry so I got foundry boots which have a steel toe and can be slipped off if I got molten iron in them. From there I joined the US Navy which issued foundry shoes. I was stationed in Southern Spain. My fellow sailors and me all had athletes foot between our toes which my colleague referred to as "mange". Spanish bricklayers wore flip flops. I guess they were not too worried about dropping a brick o their foot. You pick your poison.

@Michael Engel It's funny because everybody was talking about how "tough" I was, because as soon as it happened, I ran off the truck & I was kind of skipping/hopping around laughing it off, while they were all trying to get me to sit down & take off my boots. But it wasn't "tough", it was shock. After the initial pain on impact, I didn't feel anymore pain. I literally left a trail of blood into the ER & I was worried about somebody stepping in it, as opposed to acting like I was hurt. The Dr ended up having to give me 3 shots in the toe to make sure it was numb because he had to cut off the nail in order to stitch it, but when he kept asking me if I could feel it after each shot, I kept telling him I wasn't sure what I could feel. Andrenaline is a powerful drug! I remember I was fine until around 6 hours after the accident, when the shots started to wear off. Then I walked around like an old man for quite a few weeks after.

I watched a guy framing with a nail gun barefoot. He fired a 3" nail straight through the tip of his big toe. Instantly fused all the bones in a straight line. He turned ghost white and tried to yell, but no sound came out of his mouth. The whole way to the hospital he was crying without a sound. I'm not quite sure exactly how the doctor removed the nail, but he definitely turned off the guy's mute button when he did it. It sounded like a horror movie from the lobby. 😂

Great Video and nice work! Just a tip for handling the slabs by yourself. Use 2" PVC sections in the bed of the truck. As soon as you get the slab on the tailgate place a piece of PVC pipe under the slab and have another one already positioned in the bed of the truck. You can lift the back end and roll it into the bed. This also works taking it out out the bed.

Red, but looks fantastic! Cam, I have a question on the timing of the sealing epoxy versus caulk for the mold. You said to pour 12 hours after sealing the piece with Liquid Glass deep pour, but you added one side and end to the mold and said to wait 24 hours after caulking those in place to avoid leaks. Also curious how you applied mold release with leaving the two sides off to make getting the table top in easier. Will the caulk still seal if you sprayed mold release on before adding the last two sides? I’m following your process and greatly appreciate all the knowledge you’ve shared! Also have much more respect for how heavy those slabs are as I build one for myself! Thanks.

Vor 7 Tage

If it helps anyone, I ended up attaching and caulking three sides of the mold, then applied painters tape where the fourth side would go, spraying mold release on the form and the unattached last end piece (I put tape on the edges of this piece as well). Sealed the top, slid it in, removed the tape, installed the last side, caulked it, waited ~13 hours and poured with no leaks. I did add a second end piece to the mold for extra insurance because caulking the inside seam was hard due to the table top being so close to the end of the mold.

There are "red hues" in most shades of brown (brown is just a generic term for dark orange, there is no "brown" part of the colour spectrum, and no brown in a rainbow), so if they want something that doesn't look too red you should ask them to clarify if that means they want wood with a yellowish (or even greenish) *hue,* or if they just mean they want it to be *less saturated* (i.e., greyer). The former will technically have a bit less red, while the latter will still have red but will also reflect _other_ wavelengths (so the red doesn't stand out as much, although it's still there). Also, the colour people are seeing on YouTube is affected by your local lightning, your camera, the video format, and each person's screen, so different viewers will be seeing different colours. If you want to ask a client to approve a colour and can't show them the actual wood, use Pantone colour guides or some similar system; don't rely on photos displayed on different, uncalibrated screens.

Wow, what a great video! I think there are some subtle notes of red but not overpowering at all. Maybe you could show your clients this finished piece and let them make a decision on what they can tolerate. Another thought is to let the finished piece oxidize for a while, then finish coat the table. You can speed up the oxidation process by wet-sanding, then brush on Volume 30 hydrogen peroxide, available at beauty shop suppliers like Sally's. Test a small scrap to see if you like it or not. You're super good at explaining the process and are an inspiration for woodworkers!

Epoxy is tough but it is not stiff. The C-channel needs to be stiff because it is use to prevent warping. Carbon Fiber are also stiff but they need to be cured in an autoclave to get maximum stiffness.

red ... I've been woodworking for over 60 years, mostly in softwoods, pine etc. I've come to enjoy experimenting with the design, shape and form of the piece .... layering, inlays and blending species and color. I like your work, though I'm not a fan of epoxy but that's irrelevant .... the choice is yours and the customers' .... then it comes down to skill, care, patience and consistently improving on the final product .... keep up the excellent work and stay focussed and safe

Hi from Australia. I just stumbled onto your channel out of curiosity. I am pretty clueless of everything tools and manufacturing, if that is even what it's called but I want to say just how impressed I am with what you do and did, not only that but I found this video both entertaining and educational. So thank you for putting it up. I also really appreciate the candid shots. Shows you are a genuine person unlike most of these you tubers with spotless immaculately perfect videos- someone tell em please- we're humans. We trip, fall and knock things over. Love it !

Truck loading idea: Get yourself some conveyor rollers (at least 2" diameter and probably min 36" wide"), they're easy to find on line. Put them in a metal frame. Make sure the rear roller is slightly further out than your truck bed. Then, just lead the slab up against the roller, tilt the rest on to the rollers and push to the back of the truck bed. If you want to get fancy, the frame of the rollers can be on sliders so the whole thing fits in to the bed with the gate closed.

You can buy a conveyor roller that accordions in and out and is height adjustable.

These creations are really master pieces. As an artist, I am curious. Do you sign your pieces or is there anything to identify that you made them?

Red. I'd love to watch some videos on you teaching how to do this in more detail. I don't know how many hours of your videos I've watched in the last week. I've watched quite a few videos from different people on epoxy tables. But I always end up looking for yours. Let me know if you do make some videos teaching more in depth

I really like your videos! I am a novice wood worker and have built a couple of tables with epoxy. My first experience with epoxy was repairing a boat (Gheenoe) which I tore the keel out on rocks in a river. This gave me some basic knowledge on how to use epoxy. I have also built a canoe chandelier under which we placed the table I built out of Ambrosia Maple (wormy maple) with boat building epoxy. Those who are like me, can learn a great deal from your videos about how to prevent and solve problems associated with this type of wood working. I have basic tools with a table top planer and a jointer and was able to complete the task. I have experienced with the 10x 3 foot table some of the experiences you have shown in your videos. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and goofs with us! It makes me want to build something else. Martin

Considering how long each table takes to make, do you ever work on more than one project at a time (assuming the demand is there)? Or would that just be too much, work-wise or space-wise? Keep up the great work dude!

Man I just love this video one of the best ones and you’re so funny at the beginning while struggling with the slab ! I understand the big arms now haha ! As a traditional oak carpentry carpenter i thought « damn this guy really has to workout to build tables ? » but now I get it haha ! Thanks for all your videos love your talking and explanations never ever stop to dub your videos cheers from France ! And by the way thanks for the metric translation it means a lot haha fucking inches and feet I don’t get anything when you speak American geometry

Yep, There are red tones, it's a beautiful table top... just enough figuring and interest without being too much. Wonderfully made table and content, mister (and a fellow Toyota driver). Great advice on spreading the work around. This probably helps you love what you do a little more when you're able to avoid getting yourself caught up in the time, labor, and monotony of what it would take to mill that piece down by hand. It's always fun to interact with other businesses that may be curious about what you do, and have a great time talking with one another about solutions and problem solving while working beside another skilled person. As far as a saw guide, I use a guide, same as yours I made in my shop from drop MDF and laminate pieces, I seal every surface up with laminate, staple and glue the whole thing up and it stays straight. I saw your setup move at least one while cutting with the aluminum jig. That has to be frustrating. Just went to the link for making the saw guide...love your condensed direct style without the anecdotal BS. Mine is exactly the same, except, like I said I have covered every surface with laminate. I went a couple steps further and 1) made a dust channel, and 2) waxed the laminate and saw base so they slide over one another really nice. I an absolutely enamored with the table saw sled. I work by myself also (Custom Elevator Cab Interiors), and using this to crosscut sheet goods would be fantastic. Where did you find yours?? In mean time, I will revisit my search. Cheers, Wade

I see a lot of walnutty red throughout that table. It's gorgeous. Hey man, when you don't have a cart or other device, have you ever used broomsticks under large slabs to roll the pieces around? Works great for getting them in your truck if the piece fits between the wheel wells. I saw you struggling to get that big bad boy in the truck and thought I'd add my 2cents. Can't beat free advice. Lol.

Great for getting it in there, but he would need to take them out before hitting the road if the tailgate is down. You don’t want it rolling out the back! And it’s almost impossible to remove them by yourself from the middle. 🇬🇧 Great looking table this one.

Attaching 2 or 3 rails of Teflon in your truck makes a HUGE difference. You will be amazed at how easily almost everything slides on Teflon.

Do you ever make your own table bases? I would love to see how you would handle that task. Honestly, I find these metal bases to be cheating a bit.

First time watcher, but I like the database idea. I work in a commercial shop and get to use the same Costa you do and am spoiled but I'm spoiled by that and everything else we have. That's a great way to get woodworkers a chance to enable them to do things that would be tough to do.

Red. Have you considered a gyroscopically stable tripod for facetiming with your clients? It would eliminate the screen shake when adjusting camera angles and make a pleasant, smooth view for them. Just a thought. I love watching your videos and I'm avidly looking for a shop to work at and make my own as well. Thank you for the inspiration!

I'd be super interested in the database for the industrial shops. I'm also curious about a ballpark cost for walking into a shop, I'd like to have a good idea before I start asking around locally. You mentioned 50-100/hr, is that typical? How much time did you spend in that shop on this table specifically? Also, side note that I'm color blind as well and I vote with the majority, haha.

There is definitely a red tint to this one. I personally like the red coloring, but I can see it wouldn't work for a customer looking to avoid red. Does the aspect (north-facing side vs south) of the tree when it's growing affect the color?
