Here are a couple tables Ive built using a two part epoxy finish. That stuf is great for wet areas and seems to hold up well. If it is damaged a repour is all that is needed.

Those are nice tables and chairs.

What brand of 2 part pour on did you use?

Those are cool. How do you control the drip edge underneath? I have been inspecting tables I find with epoxy tops. All but the mass produced ones have solidified drips just under the bottom edge.

Drips over the edge can be handled one of two ways. The first is to catch it about two hours after pouring with a straight edge. I use the plastic glue spreaders with three sides having different size teeth the fourth a straight edge. After that the second is to grind it off using a four inch grinder with an eighty grit paper. Then you can use a gloss water vanish on the underside to replace the shine.
