Hello everyone. This is my very first attempt at a blog, ever. If you are reading this then something in the title has captured your interest. I am attempting an experiment with epoxy (EnviroTex) that I haven’t seen before so I guess you would say I’m the pioneer. The stuff I’m using is called EnviroTex lite pour on high gloss finish. It’s a two part mixture of epoxy resin & polyamine hardener (equal parts of both). If you have never tried this, this stuff is amazing. One coat and it’s like 50 coats of varnish, i would highly recommend it! I like the way stained glass reflects light and thought I would bring this idea over to my woodworking, sort of. I started with a design and a piece of cupped blood wood. This piece of blood wood was something I was saving but over time cupped and ruined my idea for it. This wood is very hard & trying to plane it was a nightmare, (It got sniped so bad it looked like one of Greg’s boxes) so I figured I could use it’s twin for this project. I don’t know how this will turn out, but I’ll post my progress as I go. My idea is to cut out my design & fill it with envirotex so it will let light through. I am going to add some glitter to it & some other stuff to make it more interesting.
This is the design I chose.
I cut out the design, filed & sanded it as smooth as I could. Well that’s all for now, I’ll post again when I pour the epoxy. Thanks for checking out my first blog entry. I just hope some of you find this useful & follow me with my experiment. Have a good day my friends. See you in the next entry. Mark (SisQMark)
