Joining Slabs..glue vs epoxy
I'm going to be starting a new live edge table soon, and I've been thinking about how to join the two slabs. Since large slabs 7' - 10' are difficult to get perfect glue joints on (from previous experience), and since wood glue isn't gap filling, I've been thinking more about using epoxy with a slow hardener.
System three has a hardener that has an open time of around 45 minutes, if the temp is above 75 degrees. That seems plenty long enough for gluing and clamping. It seems there is no downside here since epoxy is very strong and gap filling for any imperfect joint areas? I've found the resin / hardener with pumps, and thickener for a decent price at woodcraft.
Any opinions or experience to validate this?
