I did a Cherry table that has a river of rock running down the middle that is covered with epoxy.
The table is trimmed out with walnut.
This is definitely the nicest project I have ever done.

Truly a beautiful piece, I like the breadboard ends, and you will understand them more with time.

Can’t believe I’m the first to say this: This table Rocks! :) Great job but I have two questions:
1. Does the epoxy covering the rocks fill the space up to the level of the wood? Hard to tell from the photos.
2. How long have you been a fan of Douglas Adams?
Thanks for sharing,

A beautiful and unique table! I do have some concerns that wood movement may be a problem with the mitered edging around the top. I hope it lasts forever.

Thanks Everyone Getting compliments from people on this site means a lot.
Leafherder – the epoxy covers all of the rocks except 4 that are about 25% exposed and there is about a 1/4” gap from the top of the epoxy to the top of the table and none of the rock is above the table level.
