It started as a slab of Aussie Beefwood, split down the center, reversed and filled with casting epoxy. Finished with 3 coats of a clear epoxy. The legs are 2.5in square tube with 1in feet painted black with DTM paint.

Very cool. Prettiest ironing board I’ve ever seen! J/K. I’m experimenting with epoxy right now and hope to make a river table someday.

NIce. It looks like you have a few pieces of metal bar to hold the two sections together. Is that right?

Yes, There are 2 aluminum bars, one on each end, for strength.

Very nice, What epoxy did you use? I use Stonecoat, MAS and Eopx-It 80 depending on the project. Love the legs, I weld my own sometimes, But most of the time I just tell people to buy them.

@MJR I would be interested in hearing your rundown of how you pick which epoxy to use when. I have mainly been using Alumalite Amazing Clear Cast for mine but they have been pretty small pours. My next one may be quite a bit larger and was planning on using StoneCoat because they are the only ones I have seen who show torture testing their product.

I’ve been using Stonecoat. I use their casting epoxy for the deep pours, up to 1 inch per pour. The blue/yello in this project is almost 2 inch deep. And the countertop epoxy for the clear topcoats. I like it because of the long working time.
