Another completed table and chair set made from Blue Stain Pine from Colorado. The table is 42” wide x 7ft long x 32 tall. The top finished at 1.25 thick, with bar top epoxy. The epoxy on this table is the best I’ve done so far, and I finally found a good product to use which made a huge difference. The legs on the table and bench are tapered per customer request, and I actually like the look. The chairs were built with Domino joints and measure 18 tall x 18 wide x 18 deep with a 24” backrest tilted at 6 degrees. The 3 slats follow a curve in the backrest. The bench is 60” long x 17 wide and 18 tall. Finish on all is Watco Danish oil.
I’ve found that most people who contact me want dining sets, so I need to speed up the chair process. These 5 chairs took approx 25 hours to complete. The domino cutter was a major help, but I still have some streamlining to do.

What epoxy product did you settle on?

As always your work is beautiful. I haven’t tried chairs yet but it’s coming.

Great that you’re finding a niche. Do you have patterns cut for your projects? Don’t hurry too much and say no. Above all don’t push to finish, Tiredness causes mistakes. Your making a place for the Beatle Kill Pine in the world! LOL!

i really love that you use the pine that has been killed and would become the result of a fire or just rot, you take this beautiful wood and make beautiful furniture out of it…grand job.

By recommendation of fellow LJ Trimworxinc I settled on epoxy from Aero Marine and I use the 300/21 mixture
Works great and has very little odor.
