Wenge, Pacific Maple, blood wood, mesquite, bubinga. Blah blah blah. Too many … It is pretty cool though

I did make the pieces… I actually told the person who asked me to make the board that I couldn’t even entertain the idea of making the pieces for less than $500 separate and apart from any other cost… And turns out that knowing the person making the set was more important than money for this person.

There was a journey into my own personal hell during this project that I will never allow to happen again… Did you know that just because you have used table top epoxy successfully it doesn’t mean that you have any idea how a different brand will react? I know this, I know this too damn well. Everyone, read each brand of epoxys instructions with fresh eyes and keep a bullet in the chamber for when your work of art turns into a demon.
