I’ve been working on a live edge Bubinga bar which is now finished. I came across a little bit of footage of the third piece of live edge Bubinga I had to apply and epoxy bar top finish to.

I used System Three – Mirror Coat

I first sealed the wood with my poly/oil mix and let dry for about a week before the epoxy application. Mix, Pour, Spread, Torch and wait….....

Thanks all for watching hope you enjoy, any questions or comments please post!

Another informative vid! Thanks.

That turned out just perfect.

Question: Can a heat gun be used to pop the bubbles rather than a torch?

Good question, I don’t know you’d have to try or watch some other youtube vids to find out. I’m thinking yes.

I will try it next time I use this finish

Paul, If you don’t mind, could you send me a pm and let me know when you try the heat gun? Thanks.
