    Top will be glassed and epoxied,followed by several coats of UV blocking Spar Urethane.

    Same finishes as many wood strip canoes have.

    very durable
    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

    Two very important words to me when it comes to Dogs and social events are "Sit" and "Here"

    My past dogs have always had a problem with both these words. Woulsnt "sit" and to get them tocomebackto me, I had to rattle a tater chip bag...

    When I go to socil events like lets say a presidential dinner,, I nver know where to "sit" until someone tells me where..

    So,, I wanted to incorporate the words into the table top.

    Again, another pattern:


    sithere1.jpg
    A sheet of carbon paper and some masking tape, and we copied the pattern onto the table.sithere2.jpg




    sithere3.jpgThen the use of a Dremel tool, a 1/16 diameter carbide burr, and a steady hand, we carfully removed material inside the letter outlines.
    sithere5.jpgsithere4.jpg
    Now, lettering readyfor colored epoxie inlay..
    I use Westsystems boat builders 2 part epoxie, andcolor it just a dab of analine die powders in various colors.. I chose Black for this project.

    Mix it up, put it in a srynge, and carefully fill the letters recesses above full..let dry and work down level to flush with table top.

    So, final epoxiy filled lettering in Black, and then followed with a clear coat of clear epoxy wil glass added, and you are getting close to a finished table top.

    The top will recieve a couple more coats of epoxie to give artwork depth, and also to get the Bar top glossy finish..
    Then the top will recieve several coats of UV inhibiting Spar urathane for protection.
