Sawyer! Cam, I'm new to woodworking. Can you explain why the higher moisture makes this piece "unusable as a table"? I get that the table top won't be perfectly flat but is it really that extreme? Thanks in advance.

@stanleythedoggy I don't know how much moisture is too much unfortunately, however there are several Moisture Meters available on the market to check a wood's moisture content. I haven't done any woodworking since High School (far, Far, FAR more Moons ago than I like to think about let alone remember...😄😁😆😅😂🤣) so I'm not by any means an expert. I can only tell you what I myself have learned by watching You Tubers like Cam...

I bet you can pull that mousture down yo 8% in just a few days or a week. Be sure to completely sand the bottom so the water can escape then reseal it or not!? The bottom fires not have to be sealed that’s just not necessary

@pav nolastname dry ice is formed from Frozen carbon dioxide. But if you notice the fog all around dry ice that is the humidity condensating because of the temperature of the dry ice. And is carried and transferred into the wood. Of retired sandblaster, accuscript , walnut shell and dry ice

@Blacktail Studio I wonder if you have ever searched for photographs of antique card tables? Some very interesting shapes with one which open out and wouldn't have to be for cards (which hardly anyone plays now). Maybe chairs to match your dinning tables? If you have enough wood.

Although I am a wood turner and only a hobbyist, I subscribed to your channel. I enjoy learning and applying principles and skills to my hobby from more than just fellow turners. Watching your process was a "thought lab" for me and I'm always looking for that. I've run into hidden moisture problems as well and they can create a multitude of unpleasant surprises. The end product was still very beautiful.

@Douglas Thomas Hayden Look up Elephant In The Hospital if you’d like to learn more about it. There’s literally zero scientific reason for it, which is why it’s so abhorrent. Babies die from it, and it has more of a long-lasting effect than you’d think. It’s a purely cosmetic surgery, and it’s a money-making machine. It may not bother you, but it is harming the boys who can’t speak for themselves. You wouldn’t cut off a piece of a baby girl’s genitals just because, you know? Just spreading the word, no hate intended 💕

In case you dont have any idea yet for that thing, you could have somebody CNC a world map out of brass plating, and place it on the wood slab with offset pegs. I reckon it would look VERY nice, and maybe you can sell it off that way as a piece of art work instead of a table.

You should definitely turn it into huge wall clock, with brass/golden/mother of pearl inlays. Additionally, you could reduce weight, by hogging out some material on the back - maybe it would dry a bit more because of that?

You probably want to check another similar small piece of wood with the dry ice cleaning guys, just to make sure that the moisture did not really come from their process, ultimately it would be nice to know! (in my opinion even if it evaporates the cracks and pressure is so big that its possible the vapors were trapped thus the moisture.
Kevin Brannen

@John Cornwell My guess is that the dry ice cooled the wood down enough that it pulled moisture in, that is via condensation. However, I'm not sure how much that would have done and the only way to really know would be if he'd done a moisture check before he started the entire process. If it was good then but bad after the dry ice blasting, then it was the blasting that caused the problem. To bad he didn't check at the start.

@John Cornwell It’s definitely worth trying it out, to know for sure. In my opinion since most wood is living porous material, it had its own previous moisture level, then introducing extreme cold dry ice, will probably shrink it, and later the moisture will seep in as it warms up from the atmosphere. Humidity, deep cracks, cold hot temperatures, it’s own moisture level, all play a factor 👍!

I feel sorry for you that your table never worked out in the end however as a wall mounted show piece it looked pretty awesome. I have to tell you that this video was most enjoyable to watch and I feel that I learned quite a bit from it. I haven't been working with wood for very long, only since covid lockdown I have been using various hardwoods and some exotic spieces too, to make kitchen cutting boards which I felt was a good way of getting into woodwork but for the past year I have been thinking more and more about expanding and making tables which kind of seems like making cutting boards on a larger scale and adding legs. I haven't actually made anything at all this past year because I live in Poland and the winter time is never a good time as the snow is usually too deep to venture out into my workshop that and the fact that the rest of the year I have been working back in the UK where I originate from, however owning a small farmstead I am about to change one of our barns into a large and spacious workshop, it might not be as big as your shop is as I won't be able to use the entire barn but it will be somewhere, where I can work from all year round in. My wife has been very supportive of my plans and she is eager for me to try working with epoxy resin I'm sure I shall be able to pick up some more tips from watching your other videos. Lastly, I have a moisture meter but it is not at hand so I cannot tell you the make of it off the top of my head but I once went to a saw mill somewhere here in the south of Poland to buy some local hardwood and the guy sold me a few slabs of walnut and maple (there are a lot of sawmills in the south of Poland probably several hundred) anyway one of the slabs of walnut although extremely pretty wasn't as dry as he had made out it was and I never found this out until I had it back home in my shop, so the lesson I learned was buy a moisture meter and take it with me when buying wood as it ain't cheap here either and don't take other peoples word for it because the chances are that he saw me coming a mile away, I was too eager to buy and he was too eager to make a sale, but I like the meter you were using in this video because most of the ones I have seen are like my one with two prongs in the end whereas your one you just ranthe back of it over the surface and it readings instantly came up on the screen which I thought was very impressive indeed Sorry to blab on and on Kind regards Glen in Poland

@VVS mixing you use belt sanders at roughly 45° in a side to side or sweeping or curved motion, forward and back causes terrible inconsistency in the surface and the sander wants to run away, and 90° side to side causes some belt issues but you generally sweep it at 45° roughly

For those wondering, the table was sold as wall-art _(without the base)_ and received 71 bids with an ending sale price of a whopping *$6,200* _with free flat rate shipping included._ Great job none the less man, its still a awesome hunk of lumber and someone will display it proudly in their home!

@Savage Dragon yeah I was just saying that the life of epoxy isn’t that long so the table would outlast the epoxy regardless so I wouldn’t hesitate to sell it. Your right though, his customers are paying 10s of 1000s of dollars so I would be finicky too

@Brandon Johnson Wood moisture pockets don't really matter that much. Cam is a bit of a perfectionist and his products are in the high end range that's why he's a bit finnicky about it. Think about it, though. How did master cabinet makers of the 17th and 18th centuries make their high end furniture for royalty? Did they have a perfect working Wagner moisture meter? Nope. I'm pretty sure lots of ultra rare antiques were made with accidental moisture pockets in them, and they're all just fine. Also, cracks and checks add character to wood anyway.

@jsnthurst1 he showed it at the end of the video, certain spots were already started too droop because when wood dries it shrinks. Plus over time the epoxy will also crack and the wood will split. Doesn’t really matter anyways, all these people paying all this money for stuff made with epoxy are only going to get 20 years out of there purchase anyways. Epoxy doesn’t last as long as people think it does

@jsnthurst1 Good question, i dont think it would cause a huge issue but suspect possible warping down the road - and with it being a premium product he doesn't want to sell something of that caliber unless its perfect. Im no woodworker, but just my guess... hopfully someone with some experience can weigh in :D

Why did moisture render it unusable, will it rot? Will it crack? Why could nothing be done to correct it?

Sawyer base was awesome. And you know what, I think the top was too. I know that you saw it as a failure based on your admirable quality of perfection, but I hope you got a good price for the table...and I say table because I would use it that way for sure!

I might never make a table with walnut and epoxy, but this (and all) your videos are pure therapy. Your attention to detail, the visuals and your anecdotes are a creative treat. Much admiration.

Man, I miss the floors of the Blade shop... They were a hot mess and legendary. Mind you this was basically a mobile home converter into a shop for working on the world's largest rotor blades, radar radomes, and any other thing you could think of back when carbon fiber was pretty new tech. The only people playing with the stuff at the time was basically me, my buddies and some f1 guys. Good times, even if brutal.

Sawyer made a beautiful base! Have you ever revisited a project that went out the door to touch up epoxy that has settled if the wood has warped or something? I've never worked with epoxy so I don't know if this is a dumb question or not. You do great work.

Sawyer Design pretty much blows my mind with the intricate detail, calculations, and design he puts into his creations. Both you and he are a very small group of wood workers that I subscribe to. Hopefully you guys will collaborate on something in the future.

Have you ever tried using CA glue to seal it before epoxy? I wonder if that would be a quicker easier sealing coat than having to epoxy it.

What attracted me to your video at the beginning was the name. There is (or maybe was) a company in Oregon that custom builds beautiful hunting bows. I sold all of my bows a few years back when we had to move due to my wife's health. I grew up in a woodworker's family. Now, at 85 years, it is out of the question, but learning about music is very valuable to me. Nothing like TRshow was available when I needed it. During this past year, I have started over on bass trombone.

@Tête Dur what do you do if you earn more than double your Wife, work off the lower income? In which case you have to live in a shitbox. Unfortunately house prices have skyrocketed in the UK making living off one income impossible

Hope you don't mind an old guy (Boomer) handing out free advice regarding buying a home. I did offer this advice to a work friend, but neither she nor her husband (who is also a friend) listened. All I can do is put it out there. Only buy as much house as you can afford on one income. You can make double payments to pay it down quicker, but, as I think most of us know, stuff happens; it's tough to predict what will happen and how other people (or even we) will react to those circumstances. My first home after I graduated had wheels. It was super nice, pretty fancy, and a vast improvement over mobile homes of ages past, but still. We picked it because it was new enough that the resale value was high. It sold for asking price to the first person that came to look at it. My second home, which I still live in, was enough under my budget alone, that even retired and making a third of what I made when I was working, and being widowed, it's not a strain. My mortgage is well below what rents in the area are, plus no ugly upstairs, downstairs, or the unit next door neighbors. Congratulations and best in the future.

Instead of a belt sander, I have found that time can be saved using Makita or other sander/polisher. Fit a 3m 8" velcro/type head ($55 item) and appropriate 8" hook and loop sandpaper. Does a good job, is easier to control, and saves time (always desirable with sanding).

Although not up to your standards, to me it looks amazing. I reckon it would be a great centre piece as a giant wall clock, I picture it with either fancy brass hands & time interval markers or luminous inlay hands & markers. If you're like me and tend to get up several times a night it's nice to be able to see the time in the dark.

just a suggestion but if I was working with that cookie instead of filling all those holes pits and voids with resin and spending so much time on that I would have personally got some black putty and used a putty knife 2”-3” and blade the putty down into the voids it would fill faster and then ultimately you could put a clear sealer over it and then build from there it would save the time and it would still have that black look you were striving for using epoxy but it would’ve been faster!!! just a thought or suggestion for any future endeavors with a large volume of voids in it

For the moisture, I'd have been tempted to run a groove all around the perimeter of the table top, and put it in a dry basement or other area where it's known to be dry for about 6 months, then re-CNC'd the top and check moisture levels again. If good, back to Plan-A. Maybe fill the groove with brass or more epoxy. $.02

Great video. I have a suggestion that came to me when you mounted the "table" to the wall. Could you turn it into a clock? The former table top on a wall reminds me of an empty clock face. Keep up the great work.
