« Part 14: Bar Top Finish - Bubinga and Epoxy Part 15 of Time lapse Woodworking series Part 16: Bubinga live edge chair rail & sculpting a bar stool »

Well I’ve had to package up a few pieces to get shipped so I decided to make a time lapse video of the process of building a shipping crate for one of my Black Walnut coffee tables.

Beautiful coffee table. Looks like this happened before your last video, the epoxy of the bar top seen in this video :)

Funny you should post this now. I have been thinking about how to ship Maloof style rocker cross country this spring. I think you have experience with this, any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Love the dog.

I couldn’t figure out who you were until I saw the dog sitting on the table, and then I figured you were the one who is building the bubinga and walnut live edge bar. Sure enough, a couple of pictures later, there is the bar set. It’s all about the dogs, you know. Dogs rule, cats drool. Anyway, if I were shipping something like that table that took a long time to build out of state, or, in your case, out of province, I would be defecating bricks until it reached the customer safe and sound. I don’t know how you guys do it; I’d be a wreck worrying about deliveries and such. Cool video; I was wondering how you do it. Thanks.
