In the process of epoxy finish on 30 restaurant tables we built for a local brewery. This is the tester.

Mind if I ask what brand epoxy you use? It looks like it turned out nice.

The blue is just masking tape to form a border for us to pour epoxy up to. After it is cured we pull it off and roll the sides with epoxy so it doesnt drip. I dont like the method where it flows over the edge. The black is a painted border to accent the black logo. I will post more pics once we are finished. We use epoxy from aero marine products out of san diego.

Very nice glass-like finish on top. I’ve played with epoxy on some frames I have built. Can you describe your procedure? Do you pour it in the middle of the level table, and use a plastic scraper to work it out to the edges and let gravity do the rest? Is it one pour or multiple? Thanks.

I bet that finish is as tough as a basketball court, I’d like to try it out on a table or bar top.

Epoxy is actually easy to use. Pour it on if its a flat surface and spread it with a notched scraper. I like to pour in 1/8 inch thick coats. If there is an edge where drips would occur we roll it on in several coats till its thick enough for us. Epoxy I use self levels. We torch the epoxy really quick to pop bubbles 10 minutes after pouring. The hardest thing about epoxy is having a super clean area to apply it in.
