If you are in even more of a hurry you can use cyanoacrylate (super glue) in matrix with carbon fibers. Just use the good stuff

This tow came from
Fibre Glast Developments Corp.
  Several company's online sell various fibers, just watch for their sales.
 beav,,,spot on , another tool in the arsenal but it does not have much shelf life. That said I have lots of bottles of accelerate and matching "crusty" bottles of the glue. At the end of every workday I have the guys stop and do any epoxying necessary on any of the projects taking advantage of the night time to set. We never epoxy in the morning because of the lost time to set.In some joinery I will use a dot of cyano in the center surrounded by another glue like PUR, press the joint and walk away while the PUR expands and seals the deal.

Carbon fiber buried in epoxy to bolster a wooden something. Just never considered it. Hope I'm not the only one.  ;) Today is not wasted, I learned something. 
Been schooled again by the WOC. :) :)

Sunday morning and I'm still doing "brown", now down to 2% increments. I've tried to explain to my clients on this job (there are 15 to whom I answer) that fine tuning a tinted finish, taking a photo of it and how it will be applied to different reclaimed boards is like apples and oranges. But still, it is an exercise I go through non-stop. The last photo is some of the sequenced wall panel, jammed up in the mouth of the shop waiting for the OK to start finishing.The building next door is starting to fill up. This building is jammed up and sometimes I get fed up; today being one of those times. LOL

I'm trying for an alligator shoe look. I definitely don't want a "distressed look", but a worn 3-D surface that will"bounce " a finish . Bent saw blades, no kerf, skip sanding ,,, 3-d. WOC

well neat-o.  what is the finish?  is that a sanding sealer? or brush able lacquer.  is brushing better for the rustic?  is the end edges nibbles with something?
so you sold 200 logs, for a project you will be doing, or sold as is?

The finish is General Finishes Water Based Poly. We will brush on 5-6 coats and abrade it back with 2000 grit later. This leaves a real washed out, pickled look (pure crap), but that is what the customer wanted!
The mantel is a hollow form from a single board and the light distress hides my glue joints. One expensive piece of 8/4 walnut divided into 3 thin boards.
The logs were labeled yesterday and are sold as is for the Tijuana River Park Build. They are select as far as size, but the contractor was here this morning and sealed the deal (nice$$$).
This afternoon we're doing one of the bartop bottoms for the Mingei Museum job with a penetrating epoxy.

 One last bark inlay to do , then it is off to mill for some live oaks.

is there a way to get a satin sheen from bar top epoxy (total boat)?  tying to decide on epoxy for the bar top vs a satin urethane.

Yes by wet sanding with a hard wax oil.

i assume that is a liquid.  any brand or does total boat carry that?  I have paste wax.  I will search, thank you, DOC.  my new sig. to keep up with WOC!  
1,000 grit?  6K?  osmo, fiddes, briwax, interbuild?  i assume to dull the bar top epoxy, not as a stand alone finish.

We use UnEarthed Hardwax Oil. I have a pallet coming in next week. A small amount on a piece of 3-MScotchbrite fine grade will do the job . Stick the Scotchbrite to the bottom of your orbital sander on slow speed and wipe clean when done. Make sure to spread your rags out, or submerge them in water to prevent spontaneous combustion. Th UnEarthed oil is something I use a lot of because it is zero VOC's, child safe, food safe, but good enough to use on winery floors in a commercial application.Way cheaper than Rubio.......WOC

It's tongue in cheek, as opposed to tongue and groove. On a serious note I do want to wish everyone on the site health, prosperity and happiness along with a Merry Christmas. I am also deeply concerned about what is happening to my country. I took an oath and that hasn't changed.
Cheers, WOC :snowball:

god bless America!  your granddaughter looks like a sure shot.  makes me anxious to watch A Christmas Story.  it is on in the theatres now, and on TV soon enough.  with the pitchfork and gun, you might as well be from Ks.

One of the larger logs we shipped today. In the last two days we have loaded four trucks each day with outbound logs for a project in San Diego. Hundreds of logs, no sawing involved, ,,,,,,,I like this kind of work 8) WOC
