    I love raw edges.
    I made a 8 foot bar out of river red gum for my pool room. It has some amazing fiddleback in it which catches the afternoon light. I supported it with an old rail way sign holder made from iron and cut in half to act as brackets.
    The raw edge is like on a 45 degree angle so its perfect for leaning against with a beer.

    Hey bud. Great videos. One question- in the beginning, you chip off all the dark edges. Are you ever able to leave those on? I think its a nice look, but wondering does it rot or something? Thanks in advance.

    I saw briefly the legs that you used on this table. How did you prevent longitudinal stability ? I made a similar dining room table, without epoxy, finish, with similar steel legs, but had some problems with stability. Eventually we used steel cable crisscrossed and welded to the bottom portion of the two leg supports.

    This might be obvious to people who woodwork but I don't fall in that category. What is the mold made out of? The one you lay the slabs on to pour the epoxy.

      Not to get the pour too thick. It can overheat and ruin the pour

    Hey guys! I was inspired by Blacktail and decided to start my own workshop, so if you want to support me you can buy my first project, which I did with help of these movies. Check out my coffee table on www.etsy com/pl/shop/WoodbrosStudio


    Have you thought about putting some retractable casters in the cart to make it easier to move the planks around as needed?

    Excellent work of craftsmanship! Also excellent video editing and tutorial. This shows why sometimes is better buy these work of arts instead of building them: the time involved, the expertise, the cost of materials and the tools needed is not something that is accessible to everybody.

    I live in california where theres tons of coastal redwoods, and on one of my father's old properties, it came with a massive cut of wood out of a 500+ year old redwood. The cut is about 3 inches thick and it spans roughly 7 feet at the smallest point, not including holes in the wood from rot. Hopefully i can use it to make a killer coffee table using the epoxy method

      @ianjsutt I did not think of the air bubbles being trapped by the dowels , thats a good thought

    • ianjsutt
      ianjsutt Month ago

      Possibly, although epoxy isn’t liquid gold or something incredibly costly. Plus I think the time cutting and placing the dowels In some kind of pattern then pouring epoxy around them prep beforehand, the risk of bubbles coming out of the voids in between etc would probably cost more in the long run. Detail work like that devours your time.

    • cd rom
      cd rom Month ago

      @ianjsutt like fill it up with a filler so you don't need as much epoxy. I imagined a buncha trimmed dowels standing up like a forest with glue being poured around them. Might make it stronger too?
