End Table, with Blue Epoxy

Just before Christmas my Wife said she needed a small table to put our Christmas Tree on. So not wanting to get into a large project I used some “scrap wood” that had a large knot and several cracks. I have used epoxy with iron pyrite (fools gold) before. But this is the first time I mixed the blue tinting with the fools golds in a large area. Fortuneately the wood was well seasoned. The combination of epoxy and a LOT OF SANDING worked out well.

After Christmas I took it down to one of the stores I do consignment work with and it went quick. Scraps and a little imagination can go a long way.

Wow, love the grain & the epoxy inlay. I love this technique.. Sometimes what we consider scrap turns out to be a show piece, like this one. Well done sir! And welcome to LJ!

I like it, I use epoxy all the time but never blue. Great work.

Fantastic! The grain in the top is absolutely beautiful! I can see why it sold so quickly! The blue helps the grain pop.

Really nice piece. The blue really makes the red color pop and to me makes the grain and swirls just stand out beautifully.
