The Best Thing I've Ever Made

แนวปฏิบัติและการใช้ชีวิต

This extending dining table was one of the toughest woodworking projects I've ever taken on. I partnered with Nikon to make this video on the Nikon Z 6II which, as you can see, seriously upped my video quality. In the end, I made an extendable walnut dining table that goes from 108" (275cm) to 140" (355cm) with two continuous grain (mostly) leaf extensions to make it a totally functional expanding table. When not in use there is no visible hardware, screws, or brackets that get in the way of daily use. The wood I used is locally salvaged black walnut. I used two sequential slabs, also referred to as a bookmatch. Bookmatched tables form a symmetrical, mirror image of each other and are my favorite style of table. You could take everything applied to this table and use it with your own DIY live edge table project. Whether it was a bookmatched live edge table or a single slab natural edge table, this continuous grain leaf extension would work.

    Cam, great shots with the camera! Remember, to complete the “cinematic look” you have to set your shutter speed at twice your frames per second. For 24p that might be 1/50th, it will add the correct amount of blur between frames. You might need to get an ND filter to darken the scene since most likely 1/50th will be too bright for the shot. Variable NDs are best when you have different lighting scenarios and you need to keep changing the exposure without swapping filters, just don’t over darken the the filter because you are going to see this X or crossed effect on your shot. If you want to start doing some coloring, I’m going to paste the link of my favorite coloring tutorial for Final cut. It might be deferent for other programs such Davinci Resolve or Premiere pro, but it is the same basis. thmy.info/dev/a82jddbH3aLNb5U/w-d-xo.html Love your work man, keep up!

    Hi Cam. Have you ever considered having an Air Cushion work surface ? The table you have might even already have enough holes providing you have a powerful enough fan. I used to work with large sheets of glass and would do so on an air cushion table (it had many smaller holes than your work surface). I could, 100% of the time confidently drop the sheet of glass (flipping it over) without ever braking a single pane. I believe it would take very little to modify your desk and get enough air there easily that as long as you could stand the slab up, you could be confident to just let it go. In fact, even without a mechanical cushion of air, the slab itself provides very much cushion effect when falling "evenly" on a flat surface. If you haven't ever given it a thought before, I highly recommend you look into it and consider it. I truly doubt it would cost much and I do believe you would benefit from it. Oh ya, and it helps make moving the slab around much simpler too because it's riding on a cushion of air. That would have made loading the slab into your truck much easier. You can turn the air off to eliminate the cushion or even reverse the airflow (vacuum) to help pin your work to the work surface.

    this is a great idea. i work in a glass factory and many people that handle the glass do this exact thing you are talking about. i have personally move glass on an air table and it is night and day the effort used in turning a piece or even flipping it over! I can say this will help with your one man flips of large pieces with out damaging the piece that you are working on.

I am a kindred spirit and love wood. It is my goal in retirement to explore my inner artist and hope to imitate your work.

    Again , great job!. Your work is my therapy, it is that satisfying for me to see a drab slab come to life with your process , and to hear the explanations for any mistakes you may have made during the process show your humble , and it really shows that (professionals , weekend warriors, and especially, novelists like myself ), that mistakes are going to be made at any level , and at every level , and it really helps me when you show how to correct a mistake , saved me time and money. So thank you , and you need not justify ( at least not to me about leaving the bottom end of the table with a minor flaw , especially if it’s going to be your own. Your videos will vary in length especially if you are going to explain or correct a mistake , it’s those little things that help the most , so please continue to shoot as long as you feel like you have something to teach or something really cool to show during, and through your process. Thanks again

    Love watching your videos... inspires me to keep trying things I never considered before. I don't want to diminish your videos at all because they're great, but have you considered adding the popup link to your other videos that you talk about when you mention them in the voiceover or in the text (like your C-channel video)? Or even adding the link to the youtube videos made by others that you learned some of your techniques from? I don't think it would be too intrusive and if there's an option to have the link open in a new tab then that would be perfect. Thanks for taking the time to make these videos, I know it can't be easy. Keep up the good work!

    Cam, i'm fairly new to woodworking, last year i tackled a big farmhouse style dining table for my inlaws. My question comes on the finish you used. How does it hold up? What are its benefits, where does it lack? Reason i ask, i remember spending a lot of time applying a clean coat finish on my table using thinned clear coat by hand, than having to wait a a good period of time for it to dry. All very time consuming considering it was thinned and ended up putting around 5 coats on, all said and done. Your finish looks very nice, and so quick to apply, it has me interested. Enjoyed the whole video! First video of yours and new subscriber!

Your video, which for me was not too long, but it is inspirational. Now for a question. What sort of projects would you recommend starting with, to develop the necessary skills needed for more complex projects. As I said I have been obtaining tools, they include as my centerpiece, a 3hp Delta Unisaw, with a 52” extension table. Also in the Delta line include a 14” band saw, a 6” jointer, tabletop drill press, and a mortise machine. I also bought a Dewalt 13” planer, a compound sliding miter saw, a couple of routers and a table. I am only listing these tools because I realize the question I have asked is vague without a little detail. I do have quite a bit of experience with the basics of the main tools, because of required projects in and out of the home, but now I am ready to have some fun! Your suggestions will be very welcome. Thank you in advance. Here is my random measurement 17 15/16” lol

    Cam, this was great. The video length was perfect- just make it as long as it needs to be, like the table itself. Beautiful work!

    Cam I appreciate the outstanding work you do! I think 36 minutes is fine …you would lose so much of your art if you made it shorter! The little tid-bits are as important as showing your professionalism in working in wood and seeing the little tricks done! This just makes it look easier; even though I know it’s not! It is just RIGHT!

    Hey Cam, just my two cents but I love the longer format! I actually criticize the guys who do not spend enough time covering everything. Your videos are learning experiences which should never be rushed so keep up the great work man! Bobby

    woooow I love the different textures and techniques you used in that table, the bowtie and patchwork it's really cute together, and the grain matching on the other side! 🤩 it shows you had fun with it

    Cam, just absolutely gorgeous work, man!! Longer vids are sometimes what ppl want. If not, we can save it for later, or pause. Your content & narration is fascinating, humble, engaging, & beautiful!! You're very skilled & creative!! Fun & satisfying to watch things made by hand, passion, & skill!

    Hi Cam, I have a couple questions. I noticed that on the bow tie “crack” you didn’t fill it in addition to the bow ties , wouldn’t that have been better? And I assume the wood was kiln dried? If not what moisture content do you strive for? By the way I really love the table it looks spectacular!

    This channel has become such a habitual thing for me at work. I literally just sit and have your videos play while I work and love listening to the narration and the work being done in the background and its just so satisfying. Never stop man, love this content so much.

    CAM, I know I’m late but good job man. I’m a metal worker and occasionally make wrought iron gates with wooden inlay/accents. Your insight on wood work is extremely helpful.

    Hi Cam, what an amazingly beautiful slab of wood, and what an amazing result you made! Cudo’s! About the duration; in my opinion the content drives the duration. So you are right, in this case it’s longer to show the process.

    Cam. I’m just now starting to think about woodworking and epoxy work. I work out of town for a month and then a week at home. So I’m wanting to start working with wood to feel accomplished so to speak. I love watching you work because your not to complicated to understand and I love your satire. And to be honest a lot of you tubers are trying so hard it seems the things they say are to created and there voices are annoying after 60 seconds. 10 minutes or 45 were all gonna watch it because of just who you are and how you say what your saying. Anyways I appreciate you teaching us and thank you from Texas.

    Cam, love the content. Recently discovered your channel and am a subscriber. I agree with you, if you’d made this shorter a lot of good content would’ve been lost. Thanks for giving the video all the time it needed. Btw, I’m what you might call an early adopter Bc I have been on the THmy grind for like a decade. I don’t watch commercial tv at all. THmy to the end. Keep up the excellent content.

    Cam, this didn't even feel like 30 minutes. I normally like quick to the point videos but the visuals and transitions were great so I loved it. Great job.

    I know nothing about woodworking but I do enjoy the process of the things being made . Length does not matter as long as the work gets done and it produces a beauty . And it was beautiful !!

    Thanks for creating these tutorials. Really like your presentation style. Very entertaining. Never get enough of watching timber come to life as furniture.

    Cam- great build and I enjoy watching your channel because you explain everything that you are doing. 30 minutes was not too long to watch a project like this. I am 67 and have had the use of Nikon cameras since I was in my early teens and still have several today. Not surprised with the performance that you obtained.

    Cam. That was an awesome table and I like the longer video since I have lots to learn. I have three slabs of walnut on my bench right now to make a desk for my home office. I felled a black walnut tree on my ranch two years ago and this is the first project. Just learned a bunch

    Cam, all these new mirror less cameras are very good. I use them for Astrophotography but this is cool to see these cameras used in woodworking. I love the long complete woodwork videos.

    Cam i love the work you do and the details of your videos the new camera work is awesome. To your question about video length personally i like the longer videos with more details but some people may not be as keen to sit and watch for as long but a variety of long and short videos would keep more people watching but by far your content is what keeps us watching.

    Cam, with the high quality content you produce, you could have an intermission and I'd still watch the whole thing. I appreciate your hard work.

    Cam - Keep the videos long as you need to show the project come to life. It's a wonderful background while I'm working on something else - feel like I'm soaking up wood working knowledge like a stain. Looks great, keep it up. You wanted a number, I think it changes, somewhere between 20 and 40 minutes, long as you need to show the story of the piece.

    It was a little too long however you kept it moving quick and interesting so I watched till the end. That is one of the most beautiful tables I’ve seen.

    Cam, I don't usually watch video's all the way through but I must say I enjoyed listening to your words while watching. It helps to understand what's going on. It's also to have all the details - nothing ticks me off more than watching or reading something intended to instruct how to do a project and all the hard or troublesome bits of doing the project are missing! (probably because they don't know how to explain how they solved the problem?) You did fail to talk about how you matched the holes exactly for those tongues you used to hold the two sides of the table together. Maybe another video? That was the only thing I saw where I said that's not going to be easy to do without some trick and he didn't tell the trick (maybe I missed it?). I love to watch makers make things they love to do. You clearly love what you do. Thanks for another great watch and I too watch these kind of videos for entertainment so length with the right detail and words is relative to the project.

    Hey Cam I just want to let you know I like how you made those bowties pop with color. I have a theory if you can’t make it completely disappear make it a feature and make it stand out. Beautiful table that anyone would be proud to have in their home.

    Cam, I know this comment is 6 months late, but your videos are always so inspiring! As far as video length, I know this was a longer one but it genuinely didn’t feel like it. I felt that all the information was pertinent and necessary, so it didn’t feel like it dragged on or anything. Very engaging all the way through! Thank you!

    I am so jealous that you have that shop near you, I use hand planes to flatten my large pieces. I did a big table out of yellow fir that had me mostly sharpening blades . 😂 Love your channel.

    Being able to work with the sun shinning in your shop is awesome! It must bring out the grain giving you an idea of what your work will look like with a finish. No other light highlights the wood grain like natural sunlight.

    Cam, so far, every video has been perfect lengthwise. They never lag nor make it feel like something important has been missed in your process. Your amazing work, humble demeanor, and gentle narrative style always make it worth watching until the end. Thank you and looking forward to more.
