    thats great looking, you should bring that to a custom furniture place or some fancy furniture place and see what they would pay for it...

    Can’t. It’s a gift for my girlfriend. Thank you. I’m going to make a plum table and offer that to someone

    Is sliding on the aluminum track difficult, do you lube it?

    I used some grease, and it was easy to slide, I’ll put some delrin or the product that’s even slicker and has less resistance then delrin

    how do you plan on keeping the bark from coming off. Every time I so something with slabs, eventually the bark removes itself ?

    Yes it will eventually come off by itself but this one is kinda glued on right now so it will take a while or need to be bumped off. If You wanna keep it on you need to nail it on or glue it on. I won’t mind when it comes off

    It’s chamfered. Won’t matter much anyway. Not sharp enough to hurt someone if they tried

    That’s a great video. Two take-always, the importance of starting with dry lumber and the slotted holes in the mounting brackets.

    Moto, your green oak slab will shrink around 12% in width as it dries. That’s around 1/8” per inch of width. If you don’t slot your mounting holes in the direction of the wood shrinkage, the slab will split severely as it dries.

    You can build one out low cost soft pine for hammering training.
    My father did for my older bothers so per nail for me.
    I learn only hit the center nail.

    Dave

    FYI The one for hammering is outside in can get loud.

    Not to be mean, but it sure looks tippy. I guess it'd be ok if it's between a couch, and a wall.

    I’m going to slot the inside of the frame a inch on each side. 12% shrinkage would be about 2” total shrinkage.
