Live Edge Dining Room Table Build All Done

hey y'all I'm James right and welcome tomy dining room and I am very happy solet's just jump into the project andfinish this thing so it's that timeagain we have the table here and we'reready to get working on it the firstthing I need to do is actually flip thisover on the bench so I can work on theother side of the table easier said thandone it's 400 pounds and I haven't foundanyone who can come over and help metoday so we're gonna try and do it byhand by myself[Music]it's flipped over and I'm happy so nowwe can start working on the finalfinishing of this the next thing I needto do is actually there's a few punkyspots on the side that I'm going toclean up with a penetrating epoxy thatwill soak into the fibers and hardenthem up so that there'll be a durablesurface and then we can start scrapingand smoothing the top and getting itready for finish so let's dive[Music]first thing you do is just smooth outthe top and this is going to be a lot ofthe same thing so I'm probably going toshoot a few videos and then turn on somemusic and go to town on those things I'mgonna spend a good while hitting it witha card scraper and a scraping plane andsmooth this whole thing out make it feellike butter take it back down to wouldget rid of all the epoxy on top[Music][Applause][Music]I've spent a lot of times particularlywith the card scraper on this and I'vehad a lot of fun and now I've used avery heavy burn on this so basicallywhen I'm turning the bird I'm just usingfile getting a really large massive burron there and it cuts through the epoxyfairly quickly the problem with is itleaves some scratches and so if you lookat the epoxy sections they look more youcan't see anything down through them andthere's no way that a card scraper isever going to get them completely shinybut I can get a lot closer but before Igo through and scrape it all down alittle bit more I actually want to goback through and fill some of these bugholes there's quite a few of them that Iscraped off the epoxy and the epoxynever really got down just create alittle bubble on top so I'm going to goand fill all those bug holes and thenwe're going to come through with a finerscraper and clean off the bug holes andsmooth it all down and get it nice andpretty and tell our almost ready forfinish so let's fill some bug holes[Music][Music][Music]I love a good card scraper and with abit of work it can leave an amazingsurfacethe problem is with epoxy it stillleaves some lines in there because it'sso hard and so dense and so perfectlysmooth that any amount of movement on itis going to create little tiny microscratches and I want this epoxy to beperfectly clear so that means I'mactually going to have to break out themicro mesh micro mesh is commonly usedby Turner's and has a series ofdifferent grits that can polish this upto a really nice shine so I'm going tobe going through all of these epoxyareas and buffing those out and we'repretty much gonna be ready for finish[Music]and now is the moment you have all beenwaiting for I'm gonna be using rubiomonocoat to finish the slab it is aprotective finish with a lot of colorreally easy to put on but that's enoughtalking let's cue the sexy music andfinish this thing[Music][Applause]it's time it is finally time I'm soexcited for this um Wow okay we goteverything up here we need to put thistogether and then we're going to carrythe top up the stairs and put it alltogether and be done so let's uh let'sdo it[Music][Applause][Music]now it is time to take this stupid thingupstairs uh-ohthis is gonna be
