This table is my first attempt at a pour on epoxy finish. I needed strong light so I poured it outside. It was a lousy day for it, the temp was perfect, but the wind was blustery. I took it back into the shop after about an hour becuase the tiny tree crap kept falling on it. After I got it into the shop a large gust of wind came and kicked up some sawdust on it.
I thought all was lost and I’d have to rebuild the table top, but I decided to let it cure 24 hours and try and remove the small specs and dust.
I used several plastic putty knives I had and surprisingly it got most of them out. The remaining dust particles were rendered invisible by the next coat of epoxy.
Remember that if it ever happens to you.
After this mornings epoxy pour it looks much better and some of the tiny voids that the first coat of epoxy didn’t fill are filled in and looking fine.
The picture above is just after the first pour. I am staying out of the shop for at least 8 hours to insure I don’t kick up any more dust.
