$250 Slab To $7700 Table


Not just how to make an epoxy resin table, but how to clean up epoxy when you're done. And everything in between. This build went pretty well, although I did break a corner off at one point! So you get to see how I fixed that too.

    @ghidfe To you…… it isn’t. Let me help you. An ugly Picasso painting is worth a million dollars…. But it’s worth $25 to me. Each table too is unique…. One of a kind and is artwork wether you like it or not. To the buyer (the only one that matters when determining value) is willing to pay $7000-$8000 for the table….. Ta da 🎉 it’s worth it.

    Watching others do what they do well is rewarding in of itself. I once made a bowl on a lathe, back in 7th grade Wood Shop, but I have no illusions about ever being able to create this kind of art. But I appreciate it. My attention to your work comes from being an high school English teacher, from reading great stories and articles and from needing to read all the way to the end to see understand the finished product, or from writing a story, essay, or article, and needing to finish to see how well I have done. Thankfully, my mistakes can be fixed in less than 24 hours, but I was incredibly impressed with the patch to the corner, to preserve the integrity of the table you promised to deliver. Watching you create the table, even at warp speed was interesting and fun. I don't think you talked too much. Well, maybe for the experts watching your work, perhaps you may have. But I followed your verbal script and your actions, and never lost focus. Well done. Well done.

    Love this table, excellent patch on the corner as well, I'm a Staircase builder by trade, I specialised in curved handrails. Another way I've found to fix difficult patches is to use 2 types of glue, standard PVA wood glue on the outside edge of the timber faces and a super glue on the inside of the faces. Personally I've found a product called Mitre Fast, a 2 part super glue that bonds in 10seconds as the most efficient method. This allows you to fix the issue completely and move on within the hour without having to wait for the PVA to fully cure.

    I really love a wood top with a metal base/legs. I’m pretty much an apprentice carpenter. I just did my first job solo. I had the same chipping issue I made a kneeler for my pastor. Masking tape is incredibly useful. If you’re using a chop saw another way to help is put your revealing side face down. Really enjoyed the video thanks man!

    Wood and metal together for me, I've been super interested in doing a table with a tooled leather inlay. I'd want to carve a fantasy style map and use all the gaps in the wood as waterways. A hunk of wood like your "round Epoxy table build" video would work great, all the cracked bits could be rivers and the large gaps near the edge could be coves or the ocean. You do amazing work, I look forward to binge watching your videos lol

    Pursue your dream buddy! No need to be rich. You can buy your tools at yard sales or thrift stores for a fraction of their original price. Don't forget Market place on FB and such. Also start with small projects. Would cost less and possible errors won't be as heavy on your budget. Come on!

Thanks so much!!

    Love your videos. Thanks for posting this. I prefer metal table legs from the builders perspective because I can just fasten them on. Wood legs can be a ton of work for me and use a lot of material that people don’t always appreciate. So I tend to lean towards metal legs, especially because I also like black epoxy and walnut and the black metal legs match beautifully. Do you have a link on where to buy the CA glue and that scraper you use? Those look like they’d be great additions to my tool belt to make similar projects. Thanks again and cheers from central Ontario Canada!

    Doing some glue ups with weird angles and I find packing tape works amazingly well because it can stretch. Make sure it sits pretty flat though because if not the bumps leave residue that can normally just be rubbed off but sometimes it needs a sanding block or chisel.

    I watched the entire video, subscribed, downloaded, and liked it! I am an epoxy flooring distributor and I have to say, I was extremely impressed with your video. I suppose what impressed me the most is the fact you weren't afraid to show the corner cut mistake but show a solution. At about the 10-minute mark, I already could imagine the finish, since working with sealers that after sanding with 180 grit, how the sealer makes everything pop! I really liked the silver legs vs black or wood. Gives the table a high-end look. I have two 2" X 6' X 18" vertical cut slabs that I will be making (or at least attempting) soon. I am off to watch your video on building an epoxy table mold. Thanks again for this video!

    Great video man! I recently decided to make cornice boards for 2 windows in my living room. My Dad was great at woodworking but that was many years ago and he did not have the kinds of tools available today at affordable prices. I live in an apartment and also have an office close by - all the other businesses are closed there by 6pm so I piddle around outside with saws and stuff there. I started watching THmy videos and now have a router, small dremel and other saws, clamps, and an assortment of other tools. So today I see your video and thought I'd make a small table. My first major in college was art, but I went back to school and now I'm a self-employed, licensed clinical social worker and addiction treatment professional. Long story short, I'm really enjoying the time I spend with woodworking and wanted to say THANKS FOR YOUR VIDEOS - REALLY INSPIRING AND MOTIVATING!

    I realize this is an old video now but I did enjoy watching the process and your solutions to various issues. I absolutely love the finished table top. As far as the legs go...I personally like wooden legs but with that black epoxy, I think a black metal finish on the legs or table base would look much better than the plain metal you were using temporarily.

    I used to finish concrete. We would "knock" the mold many times with a hammer to get the bubbles to "surface out". In large pours we would insert an industrial type of vibrating "peg" for lack of a better term for the same purpose. Have you considered knocking your mold with a hammer after your pour or otherwise trying to vibrate the bubbles out of the solution? I would think the bubbles would surface easier if the solution were warmer as well. Awesome project man! Oh,,, and metal, hands down.

  • Ritebowl

    @Marc Story that doesn’t remove the bubbles. Heat from a torch or heat gun remove bubbles from epoxy. Look it up.

    I had the same thought. Vibrating the fresh epoxy might eliminate many of those little flaws that appear after planing.

  • Eric Beck
    Eric Beck13 วันที่ผ่านมา

    Well, I love bold choices. I think laying the table on the metal stand was a brilliant impulse. So, the choice should be three - wood, metal, or both - instead "black or white". The table is gorgeous, and of course, there is no other exactly like it on the face of the Earth. I am a decent woodworker, have built some impressive items, hence, I FULLY appreciate not just the work you show here, but all the other details not shown that go into producing this kind of work. Herculean effort, humility aside. Anyway, LOVE what you are doing. A true artist and craftsman. I live in Lake Oswego and I have used Creative Woodworking quite a bit. Good outfit. Finally, I knew a woodworker who was down to 6 fingers. His first 3 safety tips have made my shop MUCH safer. His fourth tip was to run from woodworking...but I'm not there yet....

    Wood; I really loved the final finish on it, and the black epoxy with the walnut ads an extra level of depth that is just beautiful. I do enjoy metal in certain things, but it all really depends on a lot. Most metal finishes I prefer are brushed or swirl polish with a clear coat over the top to prevent oxidation and corrosion. When it comes to tables, I prefer a metal base or frame with a wood top, definitely hard wood and definitely a bright finish on the metal, while I prefer a natural oiled or waxed finish to the wood, and on occasion a dark stained finish. Keep up the work, it looks beautiful and I love the epoxy tips for the buckets!

And as requested, my experience tip: when using a saw or plane to cut away overhang like on the fix for the lost corner: cut in the direction that pushes or pulls the pieces together (not away from each other, just in case any weakness in the joint (or adjacent wood) decides to take advantage of the situation.

    Wood or metal, I am easy to please I think the contrast of wood with metal legs is a great option, I like the color matching of black metal but also love the contrast of the stainless steel.

    Fascinating! I’ve made one, very small, resin river side table … and can’t wait to do another! I’m in the Uk, and I envy you with all those helpful creative industries nearby. Metal legs btw! And the black resin is surprisingly effective against the dark wood. A question: I found that my resin stained the top of my table a little - just soaked in when I was filling some small holes. Any tips? I’m loathe to start shellacking etc since I have only domestic power tools to sand it off before oiling.

    Hi, new to your channel and really enjoying the content. Just a quick question, roughly how much would you expect the wood to move in a table this size and does it depend on how thick the slab is or is this a impossible question to answer? Cheers

    I appreciate both wood and metal. As for the chipped corner, I would have cut the actual chip remnant off of the scrap and glued it back on. The rough grain of Walnut (when torn or split) lends itself well to being spliced back together with a seamless fit and matching sheen. Or you could have gone with the opposite approach and did something much more contrasting. Some sort of clever "bowtie" on the corner. The "almost" matching fix would have pissed me off as a customer paying $8,000 for a table top. But in the end, beautiful work as always.

    that was my instinct too, why not use the original bit that broke off? Surely it would have matched back in perfectly?

    Just fabulous. I made my own 10 foot live edge table which I think is pretty great but I loved your channel and instructions; just all of it. Really admire what you do!

    Great video, personally I would prefer thick plate glass legs, 1" or thicker just to be safe. They would need to run almost the entire width of the table top, more or less up to 80% of the total width.

    Outstanding job you had done, awesome! I prefer wood due to it's natural and uniqueness, so no one will have the exact same thing with yours and that makes it special

    Not only a stunning table but an awesomely well made (and explained video) - very inspirational to get the creative juices flowing and dusting off the old family woodworking tools to have a go! Thanks for taking the time to record and explain your work - best wishes for 2022 Sir.

    I don't build tables, but as a general rule, it's always good to have an extra sawhorse around when ripping long sections, even if you're just cutting sheathing for your roof. It's such a bummer when a once-nice piece of wood ends up with an ugly splintered corner that could have been easily prevented. Thanks for the video.

    I so want a table like this . Just beautiful. I like the bare metal stand for contrast, another design feature of this immensely artisan work

    Metal. It lasts long, takes more scuffs and scratches. More forgiving. I commented on another of your posts, talking about some end tables i wanted to make. My initial design consists of twisted rebar into a base. But i think I'm digging the style of base you get made. Maybe I'll try my hand welding up something like that instead of the rebar.

    Metal. That finished table at the end was absolutely gorgeous! Great work.

    I love the finished table. Admit I had doubts at the beginning when you said black epoxy, but i stuck with it and was converted at the end! Absolutely brilliant solution to the imperfect corner. I think I would have rounded it off and done the same thing to all the other corners to match because of where the problem was and the size and the issue with not being able to clamp. So hats off to you for sorting it out so brilliantly!

    A fantastic table. Wood working is a very therapeutic exercise and when you see an end product like this, it’s just that much better!

    Usually I would prefer wood, but with this one the metal looks great. Beautiful.

    Great job! I doesn’t seem easy and quick, but the result is awesome! I like the combination of metal, epoxy and quality wood, a perfect mixture of rustic and modern design.

    I would go for wood if I could. My favourite part was that corner fix and now I know how to fix our wood table legs that the movers cracked. Great table and video. Thanks

  • CalvinJ82

    Always love the thoroughness of your videos and the honesty. I've never seen a blown out corner repaired so well. I would have just the shortened the table another cut to get it off. Metal or wood base? Depends on the style of the table. Cant be one or the other for me, so both!

    That piece of walnut looks awesome without anything done to it. If I may ask, where do you find wood-slabs that large? And how do you price your final project out? Anyhow, really enjoyed the video! #Newsubscriber

    Very very nice. There's a fine line with epoxy/wood tables these days. Some say they are out of style, etc. But this here is timeless to me. Great job!

    Funny you ask at the end of the video, because I prefer exactly that. I made my desk out of 8/4 Black Walnut and some 1.5” Sq tubing that we welded together. It looks AWESOME. i love the way the metal looks when we sanded it and added a steel blue to it to add the scales back.

    I love wood and copper. I also want the edges of the table, rounded. I waited tables and I got so many bruises from the tables. You couldn't get used to the spacing because the tables were portable. You sure are talented and dedicated.

    I love the metal look. Gives it a really cool industrial look. Also, where do you get a majority of your tools? Do you buy new or try to find used on Craigslist/classifieds?

    Metal is my preference. I love that table base you have in the video. Where did you source it from? It has taken me 3 years to get back into woodworking after a really bad ski accident. partially because I couldn't walk/stand for over 6 months then had to keep having surgeries but also because I lost confidence in everything. The ski accident was a freak accident on a green going pretty slow when I have been skiing since before I could remember and was on blacks earlier that day. I kept getting freaked out I would have another freak accident in the shop. I have learned that freak accidents happen but you still have to trust in your skills and stafy measures that you have learned.
