    I'm an old (87) lady that loves to watch you create! I love the look of denim for the table. It gave me the idea of making denim coasters. I got too old to sell my resin items at craft shows, so I give it all away. I think you are a great artist!

    I am blown away. WOW. The denim looks amazing and really pops, and the leather and brass look simple yet very elegant while keeping with the theme. I have not been this impressed by a piece of furniture since the baseball glove chair of the 90s lol. Very very well done by both of you. I'm curious what a desk like this would even cost. Four or five figures?

      Awesome build. For a great mold release, spray the table lightly with scotch photo mount (not super 77) then cover with aluminum foil and build up glass/ resin from there. Foil stays stuck to resin but the whole mess will come right off the table.

    Don’t have a favorite brand denim but my hubby likes Wrangler. This table is so cool. To take a medium that gets softer and more comfortable with wear and turn it into something completely opposite… just brilliant. The leather legs are the bomb too! Loved watching you create and appreciate that you’re not all about perfection but the process of creating. 😎

  • David Straub

      Very cool looking project and especially the result. As for squeezing the liquid epoxy - in my country we have an old school device for squeezing laundry. It's two long tubes/drums with a handle. Take a look at a "hand Clothes Wringer" may be it'll give an idea.

    My suggestion for future denim tables would be to make an MDF core. It doesn't shrink much and would save you SO MUCH cost and time. Just finish the outer 1/4" or so with Denim.
    Now for the possitive this is BEAUTIFUL. I want to do something similar

      Hibah Price 3 months ago +2

      The main thing is that he likes it. I love this table, but I don't have space for two or more tables at home, if I had to choose, I would choose wood. This table lacks depth, something like 3D milling at a depth of 8/10, in the shape of the same jeans, with some interesting ragged relief (so that all layers can be seen) then poured with super transparent resin. Because now the table looks like it's fiberboard laminated with a single layer of denim, it doesn't feel like it's made entirely of denim.

    I am late to the party with this comment. Just seeing this video and your channel for first time. The contrast yet marriage the table seems to display is gorgeous. It is a representation of what an upper half human and lower half table wearing jeans would look like. So creative and very entertaining. Also nice of you to do gift the table to the fellow craftsman.

  • PartanBree

  • Stupid Genius
    Stupid Genius 5 days ago

    SUGGESTION: for quality finish with least work and least mess you cant go without custom welded wacum chamber. Get some square profiles and weld a wide flat box to be big enough to hold the denim and epoxy wood frame, but small enough to reach vacuum quicker (all that frame can be covered with glued plexi glass for visibility or welded metal sheets for strength). NOTE: the bottom and top planes will flex way more than you think at good vacuum, so you have to overkill reinforce them and maybe make box a bit higher to allow for it, or use less vacuum(if it worked with squeegee, with low vacuum will be 10 times better anyway) . This way, all you have to do is to align the dry denim, and pour many buckets of epoxy on it, before closing the top lid and depresurising few times. Top layer of denim should be ironed, or maybe left with some non sticky panel on it, so it stays flat while soaking epoxy into itself and curing, if there is a chance of wrincles sticking out above cured epoxy level.

    Awesome project! Since you asked for suggestions-as an aerospace engineer, my mind jumps to vacuum infusion. It’s a pretty common technique in aircraft manufacturing, and one of the big benefits is you can completely avoid the mess of epoxy.
    You would basically put the whole denim stack in a sealed bag with some “flow media” as the top layer. Then you pull vacuum on the bag on one side and allow your epoxy to flow in through the other side. Once it’s fully infused, you let it cure under vacuum. Then you can peel the bag off it and ideally you have a perfect denim layup with no mess. Hope this helps!

    LEVIS... I am absolutely speechless on so many fronts. Firstly, you tried something totally new and really struggled with it, but eventually created a masterpiece. Secondly you collaborated with an absolute artist (perfectionist) not unlike like yourself. Thirdly, you rewarded him with the gift of the work of art that you both created together.

This would look great as kitchen countertops too. I don't have a favorite denim but I did watch until the end. 😃

    I've always liked the stone washed denim look myself. This table turned out perfect. 👍🏼

    Those brass fittings on the top of the desk are just perfect. They look like buttons on a pair of jeans and tie the whole theme together. Great result.

    I love “Lucky” jeans. I’d love to see a piece where you do patchwork and can see the stitching on the top layer. Something almost quilt like. Regardless, well played. One of favorite pieces of yours, and although I’m not a woodworker, I am a visual artist and have seen the majority of your pieces.

    Super impressive and an amazing finish! I've recently started wearing Tecovas jeans as they feel amazing and look great with their boots.

    In answer to your question at the end of the project - black denim is my go to for denim but only because I wore it to work where blue jeans were not allowed. Blue will always be my favorite and definitely for furniture. This table, WOW gorgeous. I kept wanting to skip to the end to see the finished project but I restrained myself and was glad I did. The process and your thoughts as you worked were mesmerizing. One thought. Maybe you find a place that sells silicone sheets. You would need an extra-extra large piece to put between the resin and laminate but you would never have to worry about it sticking. It would make your job so much easier when you get to that stage.

    Nice work, this came out better than I imagined. To answer your end question I usually go for Dickies denim. Seems to last longer than most.

    This is very similar to fiberglass work! I think you’d have a lot of success with vacuum bags for the clamp up. That would also be a simple way to start making non-flat forms/molds to layup curved shapes. You could also get some biaxial fiberglass and work that into the layers to get thinner parts that have structural strength. I’m excited to see what you do on this new path, there’s certainly a lot of opportunities!

      Its basically the same kinda material, a fiberous weave held to gether with a resin, pretty similar to carbon fiber too. You could probably try and imitate the construction metods used in making composits, but I fear denim may be too thick to paint the resin on and have it properly soak through the fibers.

      I also was thinking how windsurfing boards are made. He could check videos with the process.

      True. I would lay it out, pour the epoxy then use a fiberglass roller to get the excess out. You could skip the hand wringing and reduce the mess.

      Well, i guess technically it is exactly the same as working with fiberglass. The body of the infamous Trabant car from the communistic regime German Democratic Republic was made like this table: cotton cloth soaked in resin laminated into shapes. it does not depend so much on the fiber you are using, the working technics are mostly the same. Technically you coud also cheat and laminate the denim over a lighter weight, but robust core to safe work, time and money on resin and denim and avoid emissions by wasting ressources. maybe it wouldn't feel right, but in the end noone would ever care, even, if you tell them.

    I don't think you fully realize what you did here. You did something that you didnt know how to do-- you faced real obstacles but you kept in good spirits knowing that it was all part of the process. I don't know you but i trust you. I can tell you are a person who doesn't give up even when things arent perfect even when things get hard and messy. good job man. this is inspirational.

    I was relaxing watching you on Roku's Clip-Share channel and I was watching wood working vids. Yours popped up in the feed, like your humor and your honesty and awesome creativity.
    Your channel is very chill and helps me with my epilepsy and the anxiety from the side effects of the meds. I'm a new subby now.
    Loved the blue jeans table and he deserved it , the gentleman you gifted it too that did the leather work for the legs of the table.
    If I was rich, I would order a table from you that seats 4 made with wood and in the middle the epoxy Aurora Borealis which is my favorite night sky.
    I new huge fan from California. Love all your work.
    Be well be blessed. You're awesome. Keep up the awesome work and Scotty as well he's an awesome support for you and camera man.

    Favorite brand of denim? Family worn out jeans! I've made toddler jumpers out of them, and used new car chamois for collars, cuffs, knee and elbow pads. Used pearled snaps for closure. It was SO CUTE. With they let you put photos in comments and I'd share.

    You are definitely an epoxy wrangler first class. Really loved the table. Shaheen's work was superb even if I would prefer to see cast iron under the denim.

    Duluth Trading Company makes the most comfortable jeans in my opinion.
    This was a really cool project. With those leather-wrapped legs too. Y'all made for a wonderful collaboration, and I'd love to see more of these.
