The table top was a 12” x 10’ slab I cut in half, But I routed the inside live edges to make it look like sand waves going down into the water, I filled the bottom 3/8” with resin tinted with Black Diamond mica pigment (Carribean Blue) and when it started to gel I added the seashells, Then I filled the remaining 7/8” with clear resin, When that dried I flood coated the whole top with clear resin. The river is MAS Deep Pour epoxy and the top coat is StoneCoat countertop resin. The long part of the base has the live edge on the bottom and the legs are the cut off of the same slab split in half. The base has a Minwax clear gloss polyurethane finish. I call this one A Day At The Beach. :)

That top looks great, but I really like what you did with the legs.

Thanks, I have it down to a science, That table took me less than 10 man hours, Even an average dining room table only takes me 20-24 man hours

It all depends on what king of wood, How much resin it will take and how much time etc., Message me with some dimensions and details about what you’re looking for. I did do a table once for a game room, It had playing cards and poker chips embedded in the table top under a coat of resin, I’ve done bar tops with things in them too. It may be a little expensive to ship unless you’re anywhere near New Jersey, Let me know, We can figure something out.

Have your say...
