The table's legs will be attached to the frame completed. I attach to the frame to the table from the topside. Now it's finally time to start with the more funnier bits of this build. I think that the most fantastic thing about this is that you can take whole pieces like this and make something totally new of-of it. I simply place the planks in the way that I think would look good and afterward I can make adjustments. There's my personal favorite I don't really like having all the thin ones on one side and then get thicker boards on the other side, so I think I will mix them. I try to get now.
You can pretty much see how the end result will look like, as you probably can see, it's not a perfect fit everywhere, so I need to perhaps take away some wood and which I'm a brutal force. I will probably get this to look even better, so I will start mounting it on the plywood and afterward, I will hit it with the saw, of course, next step is together in the right shape. I think it looks really really nice today this building day, three and unfortunately, we have some tough weather coming in so I'll need to keep this operation semi doors. But I need to start by cleaning up this mess halfway around the table now and then I thought I'd take this opportunity to show you that it's possible to make this table even more unique.
You can, for example, skip to cut out the circle of the second half of the table, which will give you a pretty cool effect and voila. The table top is completed now, where it's plenty of work still needs legs and still needs a clear coat. But, as you can see, it's a pretty good result. Actually, it's a very, very good result. The table itself is now complete and feast your eyes on this. I really think that this is absolutely amazing. It turned out even better than I dare to hope for. The only thing left now is a couple layer of clear coat. It will take about a week for the clear coat to reach its maximum strength. This clear coat will first appear white, but when it dries out, it will be 100 % transparent. This one is a matte tone, and the thing with clear coat is that you really need to mix this mix.
This well remembers to really get the clear coat down in every crack in every cavity, because it's on places like that, it's need of the most take your time. With this, this table has now been resting overnight. I still need to put on a couple of layers of clear coat, but I can already feel that it's much more stable and this has dried beautifully. Actually, now we have locked in all the things that I liked about it, like the bluebird stains, no way that that's coming off. As you can see, the white color from the clear coat has vanished and now it's transparent at some points, it's still a pretty thick layer.
So that will take some time, but it's the same thing as with wood, we'll give it some time and it will get transparent all the way through. You can actually see how the clear coat enhances some of the defects like this crack. It almost looks like a blood vein. Some people might find this table to maybe be a little bit too much with all the colors and everything that's going on in it, but this is like the centerpiece of our Tea Room, so I would really want this to look this way.
