Hello everyone and Happy Independence Day!
I just got this spalted maple slab and the apple wood stump. I was planning on creating my first ever slab project! The plan is to sand to 220 keeping the live edges without bark, apply a coat of danish oil, and finish the top with a coat of liquid glass epoxy.
I have a few questions:
1. How do I fill the void in the top? Do I just pour in the liquid glass or some other type of clear epoxy? How do I keep the void fill flush with the table top?
2. How do I sand the live edges? Do I use a belt sander? A random orbital sander?
3. How do I attach the top to the base and keep it invisible from the top? :)
Thanks a ton and if you can think of any advice please heap it on me! I need it for this one.
