« Part 13: Apply finish to book matched live edge curly walnut coffee table Part 14 of Time lapse Woodworking series Part 15: Building a shipping crate »

This is a time lapse video created using an I-phone on a tripod.

I’m covering a recently finished bar top which is solid 2 5/8’ think live edge Bubinga in Three Systems MirrorCoat. This is a 2:1 epoxy that self levels and is completely clear, your able to remove bubbles with a blow torch one down side is a 3 day cure time 90%, 100% in 7 days

Everything worked out well, this is still a project in progress so I will have more pictures and videos about this bar once completed and I organize the zillion pictures I take.

Thanks as always for having a look!

Awesome bar top. Love the sapwood/live edge.
Do they recommend a thin seal coat on porous wood?
If not I will have to give your brand a shot.
This bar I had to give a seal coat and a flood coat.
I would do move epoxy work if I only had to do one coat.

once its all poured on…and dripping off of the table, how do you make the edges clean? Does the dripping stop? or are there dried drip marks that need to be sanded off??

Yes seal coat is important, I’ve now learned the hard way

The edges can be smooth as glass, must have enough material to pour over and must brush evenly…... also the edge can end up a mess….. practice makes perfect

Thanks for the reply.
I have not epoxied any edges yet.
I used the bar rail to act as a dam to hold the epoxy in place until it dried.
