  11. Good work so far man. I did a 1-1/8″ top with biscuits for dining table. I only joined 3 boards, still heavy. I can imagine how heavy that top is for you!

  25. Interesting use of the shop vac to pull the epoxy through the shake. I have a Hans Wegner style Round Chair that I made but dropped the arms and crest rail assembly onto the floor and split it in two. bad day at the office! The repair went well but a crack has opened up and this technique could be just the answer for it. Many thanks, I’ll see how it goes. PS. I’m glad things are starting to settle down at the shop. Keep it up and plug that b#%%}> extractor in!

  30. people who don’t wear gloves when using epoxy can develope an allergy to it. Work clean and keep it off yourself and you will be glad you did.Very nice table, simple and handsome!! Do you work with much Rimu? Hope I spelled it right.

  36. Those belt sanders can be the devil if not kept in motion or if you tip them.

  38. I have used epoxy to fill hole before, I like the vac trick. Have you ever colored the epoxy and used it in a visible area. I used pencil lead dust to color epoxy on a walnut dresser, it gave the knots a dark black look that blended well. I wonder if fine sawdust would work. Great job.
