The Client Hated This Slab

2 min read

The 18-month saga of one of the most frustrating builds of my life. The step by step process of working with two clients on building their dream epoxy-table for their dream-house over the course of about a year and a half. Many things go wrong, some go right, you can be the judge on how well I did though.
