Made from those small pine cones and West Systems epoxy resin. Set it in the prsssure pot for about 3 hrs to remove the air bubbles. Sanded all the way through the grits and finished with EEE and OB Shine juice. its 8.5” x 2.5”.

Here is a link to my Instagram page with a short video on the build.

Thanks for looking

That is a unique idea and it “turned” out beautifully (pardon the pun)!
The light coming through the epoxy makes this piece special.

Beautiful!!! How strong is the resin when finished? I’m thinking would it hold up if you turned something like a bathroom sink? It would be amazing looking…

Providing that you mix correctly according to the manufactures instructions, its super hard and I believe you could do a bathroom sink. It also polishes up nicely. The issue I see is having a pressure pot large enough to put it in to remove all air bubbles?

Great video, I just saw one where they used recycled color pencil, it was nice, but this is definitely just plain awesome
