A conference table for Legacy Enterprises. The build premier houses. The slabs are Honeylocust. The rock in the river is made up of gemstones that were mined locally. There is granite from My Rushmore and crazy Horse, fossilite and layered sandstone from the Garlands, Iron Pyrite and numerous gemstones from the area. There is 8 gallons of epoxy on here. It’s 5’ wide x 10’ long. The base was made by Dakota Plasma Design. The entire table weighed about 700 lbs.

Here is what they had

And now

Awesome to say the least. I sure hope you had some good help moving it. I know the new owners gotta love it…

Great job on the river table, Monte. How many people or forklifts did it take to move that thing in its place?

6 of us carried it in. Luckily there was wide doors and a short distance to the conference room.

Monte,

That is one monster table I must say.
To build something that size is a challenge workspace wise for a start.
Then to have every thing level to pour 8 gallons of epoxy and not lose any is a skill in itself.
Plus its not as though you could go fossiking for stones while waiting for the epoxy to set.

So my I ask just how did you do it?

-- Regards Rob

Outstanding…. Just one question. How long did it take for 8 gals of epoxy to dry?

The epoxy was done over about a week in layers. I learned on previous occasions not to push it, it pushes back.
