Amazing. If you find the turned up edges not to your taste you can always send it to me  :D

Very impressive! Thanks for the walkthrough too – this is one of those 'maybe one day' projects for me.

You’re welcome folks. I’d documented it for myself anyways.  :D

Excellent job Steve, that mat has turned out really well.  In my experience the turned up edges will flatten out over time, as will the bumps although they may take a little longer.

Just as good as a 2x2 board but with the added benefits of no joins and easier transportation.

Textured Mats are the future!

Well I certainly wouldn’t have got this far without your early advice.  :D

To avoid the turnups, could you have left a 1" or so area untextured / painted around the edges, with the clamps over here, so you wouldn't need to redo the clamping points. Instead when dry you could trim this area off (or perhaps even leave it).

That might have worked (or I might have just got a bigger turnup depending how it was done) but the mat was sized at 80cm to fit an 80Cm wide table and losing 5cm to margin was just too much for me to risk that experiment. All is not necessarily lost though, when I unroll the mat the turnups might well have disappeared.  :)

That’s looking very good, thanks for the walk-through as I’m going to try my own version this summer.

It looks very good. Thanks for the detailed play by play. I am still working up the courage to start on such a project myself. This sort of thing definately helps to stiffen up ones own courage.

Thanks all.

The stage by stage wasn’t so much me being benevolent - I wanted a record for next time  :D

Following other people’s progress definitely helps though (eg, see the winter mat made by Jeff)

It's turned out well Steve. I might have to try one ;)  :D

I am shocked  :D
