Fantastic! Thanks for sharing this work!

How thick is that steel band? How are the ends connected?

You need to find a mudjacker to raise your floor back up to level.

Had a floor like that mudjacked. Worked well. Money well spent. (Not that much money.)

My apologizes,  I didn't realize the mudjacking comments were about the expanding floor. My focus has been on cranking out the wood.
   On the floor ,,,,,neither replace or repair. In the last 30 days there have been 80+ quakes a couple of hundred yards from the edge of my front yard. A big Ka-boom 5 minutes ago ,,,3 additional today so far. I refer to this as "ranch growing". Seriously, it is really creepy laying in bed wondering if the massive beams in my house will terminate my family's life before the next hour is up. It is out of my hands... Rob

Awesome table!  I always enjoy your posts, you do some amazing stuff.

What fault line are you on?  Up here in AK we get shakes regularly too.  Can be un-nerving at times.

Hi WLC, I don't know the name of the fault line- but it sure is active. We had a pretty jolt an hour ago. Funny you mentioned AK as the wife and I are looking for something in SE.I havn't been as far north as where you live but did do some commercial fishing in SE years ago. I met my wife in a marina and the ocean is calling us back !

A pic of the sanded top ready to start coating. We will look things over very carefully before first coat for any flaws.

 
    A few pics of the next jobs starting tomorrow , canyon live oak table , white oak counter tops and a walnut island....Rob

I really appreciate you posting these pictures.  Can't wait to see the table with the finish applied.

That's really nice.  What's the sizes of the table?

The White Oak table is 44 X 100 or so. The new owners were very happy when they picked it up this morning. Some pics   of the house siding we supplied for their home in Utah.  Rob
