This is a beautiful walnut slab I bought and decided to make into a waterfall table to try and sell at an art show I set up at. I didn’t sell it, but I did take best in category, so that was nice too!
The base and bow ties are padauk and the white epoxy is called apoxie – I’ve posted about it before. I usually use black, but decided to go bolder this time. I decided on the border around the bow ties after they were already done and the table was almost finished, which was more than a little nerve-wracking!! lol
The finish is Danish oil and wipe-on poly

That is Sharp! Nice job an the grain matching and bow-ties, Is Apoxie an adhesive epoxy? And does it come in colors or just white and you add color?

Thanks all!
MJR – apoxie is a 2 part putty epoxy. It mixes up and has the consistency of play-doh. I just put on gloves and mix it like I’m making snakes with my kids and then push it in to cracks with a putty knife. Smooth it out and your good. It comes in a bunch of colors- look it up on amazon

Peteybadboy – I hand cut the bow ties and inlaid them with a chisel and forstner bit and was almost done with the table when I decided that they needed more pop, so I used a set of chisels to carve out the area. Honestly it was nerve-wracking, but I took my time and just eye balled my sizes. I did try to use bigger chisels to keep the lines straighter, but that’s it. Afterwards I added the apoxie and cleaned it up.

Wow. Great looking wood and a great table from it. Nice choice on the white epoxy. A less common choice, but it looks great.
