For those of you who have been seeing my big table here in the shop, I am nearly finished! It will be here at least a week or two in case anyone wants to take a look. It weighs close to 2,000 pounds.
The client will be bringing a semi-truck flatbed which we will set it on. And I’ll build a crate for it to ride to California in. I have about 9 gallons of epoxy resin filling the various voids and cracks. I used about one and a half pounds of Turquoise stone for the inlay of the company’s logo.
I had a local blueprint company print it for me full scale and then traced it onto the table top.
The irregular shape of the inlay prevented me from using a straight edge or guide so I did it freehand. The inlay is 45″ tall and took me most of a day just to cut the recess. I did use a hand-held laminate trimmer which I suppose can be called a handheld tool…. It does have a cord though.
There are more pictures to come, but I need to go and check on the table again to make sure it’s drying correctly without fingerprints! 🙂
