$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. Book matched looks great and is certainly trendy/popular. But I think you already know that! Love the walnut. And again, greatly appreciate your sharing your thoughts and experience. Be safe.

  2. I work construction and lifting something like that is not recommended. It would be worth it to devise and invest in some sort of rigging equipment. Maybe chokers with D-rings. Hats off and respect to your prowess. Thank you for showing us your work. 👍

  3. Bookmatched. I enjoy watching the craftsmanship on your work and appreciate you sharing your knowledge.

    Just watched this video with my 80 year old mother who says that she's gonna start watching too.

  4. Slab fo sho. Wait. Bookmatched. Wait. Uggggh. Ok. Slab. Final answer. That's why I like you. You ask the tough questions. Lol Also, your troll snark is next level. I have seriously learned so much from you about woodworking and resin work. Thank you SO MUCH for your videos.

  5. 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….. 😎👍

  6. 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."

  7. 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.
