That is really awesome, I like it a lot. Did you do anything special to keep the epoxy an even thickness?

No just squashed the pieces together.I mixes epoxy thick so it wouldn’t run out.

Very cool effect. I may have to try this in a power carved piece. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome idea and this is great. Curious how you were table to keep the joint depth the same when gluing them up? I would think depending on clamping pressure the joint might not align perfectly…was that a concern when you put this together?

I didn’t use any clamps the epoxy was mixed thick and I just pushed the pieces together until the epoxy squeezed out evenly and I used witness marks to keep it lined up.

Looks great, what did you use to colour the epoxy?
#9 posted 05-30-2011 12:15 PM
I used oil artist paint.It didn’t give me the color I was looking for so now I’m using Trans Tint.
