      Phil Cruse find a business or someone near you and see if they can do it, that might cost a bit though I don’t know. If you want it for free maybe you could see if a family member could do it for you

    Epoxy is a real bitch to work with. Getting it perfectly smooth and glossy is something I never achieved. Usually it results in an endless loop of sanding and re-applying.

    "This is extremely difficult and I'll never do it again.

    also...."this was my first time and I didn't read the instructions."

    While I giggled at that, I have to admit that overall, you did it right. That seal coat is good idea. When I did my first desk I mistakenly started with a flood coat. So many bubble.

    BTW, you could easily sell those desks for $4k each here in Brooklyn, NY.

    This looks like one hell of a sturdy desk! Simple design but looks great in the end. I was a bit scared watching you gluing that large top without biscuits but it turned out great, even with a first epoxy experience! Great job sir! I'm subscribing!

    Way to go man, great shop. Ps: face glueing boards like that, you don't need biscuits or dominoes. Next time, if there is a next time lol, put angle irons top and bottom across boards and clamp them ten will keep boards flat, put top on the top angle iron that contacts wood surface to avoid staining. Buckling generally occurs because of over tightening of clamps, just tighten to squeeze out. "I did not read the instructions" hahaha! Looks great mate.

    After you ran each of the sections of the top through the planer you should've ran through the table saw again to square up the edges. When clamping put half of the clamps on the top and half on the bottom and that way it'll be more of an even squeeze to reduce buckling. It turned out great!

    It looks really nice. I think the 2 piece of woods were good after you flip the table they would be leveled. The table where you was doing to the desk was not level probably. Imma do 1 myself thanks for the video

    Nice Computer Table! if you alternate the clamps on top and bottom when gluing a panel together it will help with the buckling of the panel.
