I want to build a resin table. I am looking for advise on type of casting resin to use. Some areas in my table wii be over 1” in depth. If you have done a resin table could you share some tips and advise.

Thanks

Larry

one inch thick could produce a lot of exothermic heat.
if you are talking about deep pockets in the wood, I would pour them first.
a little at time, to build up to the level of the rest of the wood.
doing it all at one time could result in less than satisfactory or even catastrophic results.
I have used quite a bit of Castolite products back in the day with good results.
photos of your project would help a great deal with more accurate feedback.

Larry, just for clarification – - –
are you going to make a wooden table then pour resin over it like a bar top ?
or – a solid resin cast table with items embedded in it.
photos of your project will help a lot.

If the link doesn’t work YouTube “ocean epoxy table”

This will probably answer all your questions
