This is all natural. How to create this amazing table surface check us out and visit us anytime at Stone. There's a bunch of different species. Just purple woods and Jacobi walnut we got maple, we've got all kinds of great species that we're gonna laminate together and make a really cool project. We're gonna show you how to take our epoxy and cover the surface. We're gonna show you how to reinforce this, so you don't get cupping and movement on this table for the long haul stay tuned.
All the tips and tricks are right now. First thing: what we're gonna do is rip this down into two and a quarter strips our overall table is going to be 2 inches thick when we're done so we're gonna give ourselves two and a quarter so because we know when we bar clamp this Together, we're gonna have some imperfection, but that's where our slab jig comes into play. So the first thing I'm gonna do is set up. The table saw and I'm gonna rip this down to 2 and 1/4 inches. Let's get started, okay, what we're doing is we're working with some wood.
That is what they call s 3 S, which is sanded 3 sides, and some of these are just sanded 2 sides, and so you have two edges that are just rough swan from the the actual mill and so we're gonna put a nice straight edge on One side of these so that we can then measure two and a quarter and cut our pieces accordingly and not have it be wavy down one end, so we're just gonna take a nice straight piece of plywood. That's already ripped and we're gonna shoot this with our 23 gauge pin nail gun the reason we use 23 gauge nails is that we could snap those off without evidence that you pin nailed it or screwed it or something like that.
They come out really easy, but they hold just perfectly for a cut like this. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to start at this end I'll start my board, I'm gonna get a measurement on that right here. So we know that's about seven inches, we'll come down here, we'll get this at about seven inches and then we'll see and make sure when we rip this, we just rip enough off to make a nice straight cut. Okay, let's check that now and we're going to make sure that no part of that cut will really see it bows out, which is fine.
