Ok – Now my day is complete as is the project I started 3 weeks ago. You probably remember the Chestnut table and I mad a bowl with the same resin as a feature ring. The bowl was nice but I wasn’t happy with it.
Today I completed THE bowl to accent the river table.
As some of the pictures show, the resin allows light to filter thru. Some of the resin is too dark to let the light thru but a guy can’t have it all. And I’m pretty sure I can’t control how the resin sets other than to stir it until it becomes too thick and then it’s too late.
Anyway — here it is, the perfect compliment to my first river table.

Enjoy and Please let me know what you think and if there’s something else I need.

They go great together, should never be separated. That copper effect is beautiful and complements the chestnut very nicely.

What a nice use of resin. You shouldn’t have any trouble selling that as a set. Lampshades next?

Tom, Bambi, Pete, John, Jim and Vernon, thanks for the feed back. The resin is a lot easier to work with than I imagined. Not a lot of fun in a river but cake in a bowl
