What's better than hanging out with your best friend? Hanging out with your best friend, going on a road trip, and being able to create something awesome together!

A couple weeks ago, Sam from DIY Huntress came to visit me here in Arizona. The next morning, we loaded up the truck and drive to Whittier, California to meet up with our buddy Chris from Foureyes Furniture (if you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peak of some of the shenanigans). Chris is a pretty big deal in the YouTube woodworking community and I've been dying to get to work with him. He build some of the most stunning modern furniture and was kind enough to open his shop for a fun collaboration!

We decided to build a round coffee table, but gave ourselves the challenge to try to blend all three of our styles and skill sets into one homogeneous piece. In my opinion, we TOTALLY pulled it off! Each of us was able to focus on what we do best (Sam- patterns, Chris-build, and Me- finishing) and teach the others a thing or two.

I was able to share a few other little tips with Sam and Chris as well while we collaborated. For example, I taught them my little trick of using both DAP Weldwood Carpenter's Glue as well as DAP RapidFuse Adhesive on a joint to help it grab quickly. The RapidFuse sets with only 30 seconds of pressure applied, then hold the wood together while the Carpenter's Glue fully cures. It's like a liquid clamp.

And I repeatedly professed my love of PlasticWood-X All-Purpose Wood Filler to Chris so many times, he may or may not invite me back to his shop. Either way, now he knows that the pink color (called Drydex) goes away when it's time to sand or finish the piece you've filled.

Want to watch what we made? Check out the video below to see what I was able to bring to the table or keep scrolling for all the pretty photos.

Both of my friends published FANTASTIC videos explaining their portions of the build, make sure to go give them a watch and while you're over there, tag the like and subscribe buttons. I promise you won't be disappointed.
