I Build HUGE Doors and Carve A Tree In them By Hand!

The newest addition to the Dream Shop—Miss Piggy—our CNC we installed in a previous video is just too loud for our liking. To solve the noise problem, the boys and I decided to build a custom set of doors out of some of the red oak I just picked up.

I Try Viral Epoxy Countertop Products

You guys have been asking if I could try an epoxy countertop, and Stone Coat Countertops sent me an entire kit, so this week we’re giving it a shot. If you guys remember on our three-level cabinet build, I built a cherry cabinent and didn’t do a top for it because I planned on getting a piece of stone.
