Grettings All and Happy Independence Day!
You may recall my recent post about adding breadboard ends to stretch a tabletop, this Q is for the same project… In going through my lumber stash I found a georgeous curly maple board that matches color-wise (raw anyway) to the top, only it’s 3/16 ” too thin.
Being curly maple everything I am dealing with is VERY flatsawn. I am thinking of using epoxy to add a 3/8″ thick layer of maple to the underside of the breadboard board before final milling. My plan for the top was always an underbevel from the roughly 1″ thick top to a 1/2″ thick show edge. The epoxy will not add moisture, the underbevel will move the epoxy line out of sight. The breadboards will be 3-4 inches wide.
Will this blow up in my face?
