$10,400 Table Headed To Hawaii

How I made this nine-foot-long bookmatched walnut and epoxy dining table for a client out of state. I’ve made a lot of epoxy tables now, but this was only my second bookmatched dining table. I give a couple tips in here that I have not included in a video previously. So I hope you can get something out of this video, even if you have seen other ones already!

  1. Bookmatched Slab… Beautiful work as always Cam and trust me I know quality work when I see it was wondering if you'd ever make a dresser or wardrobe maybe a live edge bed… I know you'd do great work on any one of those pieces… Keep up your phenomenal work….. 😎👍

  2. Sin is a Greek word that means 'miss the mark'. All people are clearly sinful and miss the mark regularly. Jesus The Messiah, who was God in the flesh of a man, died for the remission of sin, including yours, was buried, and rose form the dead 3 days later. If you simply believe in this to apply to you and trust Jesus to save you from the second death, then you have everlasting life in heaven. As Jesus says in John 6:47 "verily, verily I say unto you, he that believes in me has everlasting life."

  3. Brother, I am sure you've heard this before, but I am very thankful to have found your wood creations videos. When I heard you mention photographer's lights, I just had to tell you that just 2 days ago I was thinking of the same thing while trying to get good light on my work without the shadows to block my sight. I have never used epoxy, but do have some nice logs I am preparing to get milled into slabs and boards. I just may try out some of your tricks once I get them processed and my shop building built. Best regards on your future works.

  4. Okay, I no longer know if I watch your channel because I love watching you make amazing furniture and provide great info while doing so or to read your replies to trolls at the end of the videos! Absolutely hilarious!

  5. Book matched or slab will depend on the client. I would think my job would be to educate them in the differences and talk about pros and cons. By now you have a HUGE portfolio, so having them choose should be just a matter of asking the right questions. I love the soft gloss of the Rubio. I work alone, too, and get into the same “Am I strong enough for this, or just crazy?” situations. I see something like a car rotating rig in your future. Make it from cutoffs so it will be impressive as hell with the mixed exotics.

  6. that is an absolutely beautiful table – when you do that final coat and show it in the light – amazing! Also fun to see heat from sun used to correct the slight warping from the resin curing; i work with resin for miniatures and there hot water or a heat gun is also the perfect way to correct warping (with subsequent cooling and something keeping the pressure on to lock in the desired result) – I hadnt considered that the same principle would apply to these much larger circumstances

  7. Book match or slab they are all beautiful it is amazing some of the work that you do but when flipping please make you a brace with some rubber on it like a f to help you flip your tabletops it will be a whole lot safer for you and your back

  8. bookmatched. Wow, this is beautiful. How do you get all the bubbles to pop in epoxy? I've been using a heat gun, which shows no bubbles when I use it but they come back in a few minutes.

  9. Cam, I was wondering if the technique for heating the resin for cupping help only while the epoxy is curing or can it also help after the table cure for a couple weeks? I enjoy everyone of your videos and your detailed blogs. Thanks for all your helpful instructions.
