@Christopher Bedford I was talking about deep pour epoxy vs wood. IF there was a fire event where the fire exited the firebox and was heating the mantle, the epoxy wouldn’t be the first thing damaged.

Red. However, the client that doesn’t want any red should just look at that table you just made and he/she will probably change their mind. Awesome work. When you said a lot of people are getting tired of the epoxy tables I got excited. Maybe I’ll be able to get one sooner than retirement.

Agree 100 % on the red, for even more character! When making a rocking baby cradle for my daughter, one of my slabs had some purple sapwood streaks in it, so had an idea. Cradle had an arched top over the head of the cradle that I was going to put 1/2" slats, with oval head brass screws (the only screws in the project). I alternated between solid black walnut slats and the slats with the sapwood. Man, did it turn out gorgeous! Yes, I'm a wood character freak!

Good job, as always. However, to prevent injuries, I recommend a mini crane system that will operate on rails mounted on the ceiling of the garage. Spinal injuries, in particular, can be very dangerous. As far as I can see, this risk is too much for you.

I was surprised that I the beginning he didn’t load it onto a mobile workbench to avoid injury or having the piece split (it looked like that could have happened pretty easily). Then later in the video he did use a workbench. I’m a nurse and can’t help see potential injuries! I’m only 5’2”, 53 yo female and moved a large utility sink cabinet box from my rig by putting a hammock strap around it and crossing it under it, then lowering it onto a furniture mover. When I reloaded it back into my rig I used the hammock strap attached to the tie-downs in the rig with the strap running under the box and was able to use the weigh5 of the box to help lift it up to Honda Pilot tailgate! The strap helps stabilize and gives you something to grab onto in case things start going south.

Many of the small shops don't want or need to advertise. People go to them by recommendations. New start-up shops can be hungry for work but may not have the equipment. If you do contact one be clear of what you want and try not to take hours of their time. If you can't afford it tell them your sorry and you won't waste more of their time. They don't get paid until they are making stuff.

@David Gallagher you should ask the local guy if his sander can run without oscillating the belt. Many have a 4 foot belt but the oscillator loses a few inches. Planers are unusual over 30 inches but I think rex make up to 9 feet for the sheet material making industry. The cabinet makers in your area may be happy to help but don't be offended if they say no. They will not want to damage their machines for a few bucks if it could cost them tens of thousands to replace. With a bit of thought you can jig up a handheld belt sander for it which is OK if you have one already.

Thier is nothing like a beautiful piece of wood, like this black walnut that someone like you has worked with and made it look stunning...! The grain of the wood, knots and everything else that makes up the character of a piece of natural wood and then having it refined into a table top or counter is beyond anything else, because it's natural...! Actually love the plastic inserts that add so much character to something that is already eye popping.... Love watching your channel and your work...! Greg...IN

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.

My grandfather was a logger back in the 30's and was able to cut a circular slab (cookie) from a huge cedar burl. It's about 48" wide. It's been living in my garage for last past 15 years. It's rough cut with a chain saw. It's a stunning piece of wood but I've never known what to do with it. Today I started hunting down anyone or any place that has a planer wide enough.

What a beautiful job. When I was at Secondary School in the UK (it happened to be a Grammar School), we had a woodwork class. I made a few things over the course of the next three years until the course changed to Technical Drawing for the final two years. I enjoyed the woodwork, but didn't really realise how much until some years later. I enjoyed the Technical Drawing and obtained a GCE 'O' Level qualification. However, I struggled at Grammar School. I left at 16. The Careers Officer was used to people staying on to 18 and didn't have any suggestions. I worked for an engineering firm, but gave up after 6 months as it was dirty work, coming home every day covered with a film of engineering oil. I became a Telephone Engineer. At that time we had to complete a course for every telephone system that we installed. I often got merits for my installation work, so working with my hands seemed to pay off. I didn't have the money to employ people to do work when I bought my first house, so began buying tools and getting books from the library and working things out myself. I bought a Victorian House and renovated all of the sash windows and much of the woodwork in the house. I loved it. I so wish the Careers Officer had suggested I begin a carpentry apprenticeship when I was 16. I really enjoy working with wood and my hands and would so love to have a workshop, for pleasure. You are a lucky guy. Thanks for the video.

The national database is a great idea from a community perspective.

Red. It is lovely, but the other piece you did that ended up more purple ish was way better in my personal opinion. A more neutral wood tone is soooo much easier to decorate around, or fit into color schemes! It is just so much more classic and provides flexibility in complementing other colors, rather then competing/clashing with them, IMO.

Hi Cam. Red. Several questions on this one... but first, thanks, as always for your hard work. Gorgeous table. I'm not sure I understood 3 things you did this time: (1) why did you use deep pour to seal the table this time? Feels different than "usual," when you use the tabletop version... (2) when you didn't seal the top of the void (before the second epoxy pour), is that because the bond is better that way (vs. scuffing), and (3) you said epoxy can be dangerous? Could you elaborate? Thanks again, and in advance.

Question: Did you ever consider blasting the parts of the wood that need cleaning up, with “backing soda”?! Just so you know what I mean: It’s a common version of blasting media, used like sand blasting, but with the advantage, that it dissolves with water (when cleaning up). You’d get into every crevice and need way less tools in total. Best wishes

Red Just recently found your channel and working my way through your videos with great joy. Really nice work !! Just out of curiosity, when you take the slap in and out of your car, have you tried to but a small round stock under, so it basically rolls in and out ? it looks very heavy :o

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.

Just stumbled upon your videos. Love everything I'm seeing so far. I was curious if this is your full time job or just something you do on the side? From the products you put out; it would seem that you would/could/should make a fair amount of money from them. Even without the youtube page. I'll be a regular watcher for sure.

Red. I am just starting to make epoxy cutting boards anywhere from 3/4 to a 1 1/2 inches thick and was curious on what you would recommend using for epoxy and a finish on it? Also awesome videos thanks!!

have you ever done a table without using the liquid glass? i.e a finished table with all the holes and gutters intact.

Red. This is my favorite table you've made thus far, I've just realized that some of these projects takes you a full 3-4 weeks! It must be sooooo satisfying to see the final product after such careful detailed craftmanship. My goal in life now is to make enough money to get you to make me one of these beautiful works of art. P.S. I think its a great idea for that database, I see it being super useful for your new woodworking course. GL! -A random subscriber from Baltimore, MD

It's definitely lookin a lil red there boss! But it's still gorgeous. Question regarding the resin dye (which you also didn't link in the video fyi) Do you always mix 1mL/ gal? Does 1.5ml/gal make it darker or is it a waste of color concentrate? Thanks 🧡

Lots of red, but gorgeous! Even though I tend more toward classical furniture, these are simply works of art, not furniture! My grandfather picked out three pieces of dark walnut to make my grandmother's gate leg dining table that she designed. That was now 100 years ago! Very dark brown walnut. Wood shop is still in business -- in Berkeley, California.

Red. Well since you said you read all the comments I just wanted to tell you thank you for the hard work you put into these videos. It's gotta be like having two full time jobs with overtime on both when you're building huge pieces of furniture by yourself and doing all the videography and commentary along with it. You do great work though and I admire your clear and concise approach to making absolutely beautiful pieces of furniture. I just hope to be successful enough one day to be able to afford a couple of pieces myself. Keep up the good work.

Seeing this title reminds me of a story from about 92, my brother worked as a joiner for an upmarket building decorating company based in North London,I was once asked to go to one of their storage yards which were railway arches near Camden,to get an old vehicle started for them.The boss had apparently told the new yard boy to empty out an area and burn anything that looked like rubbish,I heard some heated swearing and shouting in the yard some time later. When asking my brother about it, it seems that the boss had turned up and realised that the yard lad had thrown meters upon meters of handrail on the fire, handrail from South American church pews that was hand carved over 100 years ago from a wood almost impossible to obtain nowadays,apparently it was worth around £80-90 per meter. I felt sorry for the lad who understandingly lost his job!

Hey man... love your work. I watched you struggle loading those slabs. Suggestion... get a 2-3 pieces of 1" PVC pipe...lay them length ways in the body of your truck... slip the slab on to them and it will slide easily into the bed of the truck... I moved a small storage building on some four inch pieces...by myself. A little less friction goes a long way! Blessings!

With syringes you should try pulling back air into the syringe and pushing it into the bottle, then pulling back to get out the dye. That back pressure will help quite a bit.

I always thought custom tables like this was a rip off- just a big piece of wood with epoxy. After seeing the amount of work that goes into this; it feels like the client got a good deal. In any case, this is a very good video, you should make a video like this for all client purchases so they know the history, process and hardwork involved for their furniture.

Remember wood is dead tissue with every single piece slightly different One of my family names is carpenter, carpentry involves a lot Mostly what I've done is taken a woodshop class and put together a CD holder with an a- I had to use a hand saw a coping saw those c-shaped handsaws It's different than metalworking which can just be like melted into whatever shape you want and it's a lot softer so it's less forgiving than metal Also there's this technique of growing trees where you prune it and then you would get a long pole of a branch Which then would get turned on a lathe into a tool/broom handle That's one way to reduce wood waste And some of these prunings have continued to grow for 80 years so now we have perfect long pieces of wood that are old and ready to be harvested So I hypothesize that we could use limbs of trees, to farm planks

Oh yeah there WAS Red hues in that lovely table top but to my mind it added lustre to the finish and I can’t think of any reason a potential client would have to not be satisfied with the finished item. 👍 great job

Red hue's for sure, and a gorgeous table to say the least. I just wanted to thank you for creating such candid and interesting content. I think your shop database is brilliant. Also just wanted to point out that not every woodworker/craftsman that's following his father's foot steps has all his fathers old tools. Case in point, I'm a 5th generation home builder/craftsman and have essentially zero tools to show for it. Consider yourself a blessed man with a blessed shop. Keep on keeping on Cam! Your doing great!

I'm glad to hear you've gone to better protecting your feet against accidents. I spent 30 some years in aviation and we were always cognizant about safety because aviation is completely unforgiving when it comes to accidents, it will kill you in a heartbeat. Some years ago my buddy and I working on the tail section of a 747, close to the rudder which is barn door size. Someone in the cockpit accidentally turned on the aircraft power and the rudder instantly went to neutral, quite a jolt. My buddy had his foot caught in the rudder! He had just bought a brand new pair of steel toe boots the night before and they saved his foot from being crushed. He was badly bruised but nothing was broken. Safety is paramount when working around power tools and heavy materials. I'm glad to see you wear respirators when applying epoxy and paints, that stuff can be deadly. You do a wonderful job and you have a great channel.
