You will want to draw a "lowest surface" line across the ends of the boards, and match each individually in turn.
I'll try a test piece with some water. So just plane until the line goes away right? Thanks.

Nice idea Jluke, but I can't fill this table top with epoxy, I need them to slide away from each other.

The water won't be as pronounced an effect, if it even works, like I said; I've only ever done it to make ubersmooth surfaces while turning. I'd recommend a damp cloth or sponge, and it will swell everything, but the grain in a more prominent way.

Yes plane until the line goes away, I recommend a square or ruler, and a level as you go so you can correct for any lean.

I didn't see that you settled on aluminum or steel. I my house, I would have to go with steel. Some big monkey would sit on it eventually in a very un-delicate manner.

Finally jumped back into it, have a lot of experimenting to do and a lot to learn.



But it should be fun.
Yeah Spider, I'm going with some steel.

But the real question is what will the worth ratio be of learning/injuries?

nice project dun'
for like 60 or 90$ you could get a 2 part epoxy to coat the top w/
then your surface wouldnt have to be near as nice.
ive coated concrete countertops w/ it.
and a desk i built out of an old section of hardwood flooring.
fills gaps and what not.

Hmm, I'll have to look into it as well.

I'm thinking teflon tape in between the boards for helping it slide/spacing the boards enough. Just a couple inches of tape between the areas that always overlap and don't get exposed.
