This piece will go to New Hampshire for sale at American Cottage and Rug. I’m also doing a 3 piece mini bar out of 3 large juniper slabs to go with the pub table. The pub table sits on plywood, the space between the rounds is filled with epoxy which is filled with quartz, moss and a variety of other natural ingredients. The legs will also be fabricated especially for this piece.

That is a really neat table top.
I like it.
Thanks for showing.

Bob.

Very woodsy! It will make a great conversation piece.

That is sweet! Just one question though…..How much epoxy did that take?

Very cool… Would love to see it again when the legs are done.

Never seen a moss inlay before, that looks amazing… like a slice of the forest. Is there an epoxy finish over the whole thing?

Thanks for the comments. To answer your questions, the epoxy only fills the open space between and around the rounds. I put 2 coats of tung oil on the rounds and am now finishing with wipe on poly.yes it took a lot of epoxy. ..2-3 gallons.
I will post once the legs are finished.
I enjoy making landscapes within the epoxy and have created lakes and streams on other pieces.

I am not familiar with using epoxy. Is there a good brand or a brand to stay away from? Where can it be purchased and what is the cost per gallon? Does it have a shelf life after it is opened?

Have your say...
