Bob - I am in Kissimmee, at the very end of John Young Pkwy, just down the road.
as for adding the colored groove and epoxy; first of all,
you need to build the project and address any structural issues
prior to proceeding to the finishing steps.
after construction, you need to apply three coats of clear epoxy to seal it,
then, address the groove with colored epoxy. your project, as simple as it sounds, is not all that simple.
but - if you go through the appropriate steps, you will have a successful and satisfactory outcome.
build your table first- then move into the finishing and epoxy stage.
the groove between the boards is made with a router 45* chamfer bit before you glue everything together.
QUESTION: what wood do you intend to use ?? just plain construction pine from the Box Store ??
[construction pine is not the #1 choice for any kind of table except for a workbench in the shop or garage].
also - what woodworking tools do you have or have access to ??
(you will need a table saw, jointer, thickness planer, router, sanders, and a host of other tools).
thank you for your drawing - is this the look you are trying to achieve ?
