This was not much of a wood working project as it was expensive practice using 2 part epoxy. The table of unknown wood (probably pine) came from a local bar that had closed down. I used a 4’ level, clamps, and a router to Route out along the edges and the 3 diamond shapes in the center. I then used way too much dark stain. Finally I put on 3 or more coats of System Threes MirrorCoat finish. 1st coat was to secure beer caps, 2nd coat to completely cover surface, 3rd coat to build up a nice and thick surface. For the 3rd and fourth coats I used blue painters tape around the edges and once the coat started to set up I removed it. I wet sanded in between coats to get out any imperfections from bubbles I couldn’t get out with the heat gun. I don’t know what took longer; drinking the beer, or finishing the project.
