Hi !
This is a stool with unusual top. There are old apple tree saw cuts in resin.
What is your opinion?

Beautiful . . .I assume the old apple tree stopped producing! I have such a tree and I’m deciding its future now. Apple wood makes a fine box! But, I must say, your stool idea could be handy as I finish the kitchen and start planning the stools for the counter!

Pretty cool stools there Altalit … How long did you cure the wood before casting it … or did you an old dead limb??

Very nice! I too would like a brief description of your process. Did you set these in a tray before you started filling with resin? Did you use a router around the edges? Welcome to LJ’s.

Thank you for your interest.
This is modified epoxy resin. Clear, colorless , UV-stabilized. There are two layers: power layer – birch plywood 9 mm, ornamental layer – saw cut 5 mm. Saw cuts dried in a thermal chamber. Cuts on edges form a frame, in which is glued liner. Create a tray with adhesive tape around edges. The resin casts over 2 times. Resin (and product) was degassed in a vacuum chamber.

-- Dmitry,
