Ambrosia Sycamore with epoxy river and top coat. I used StoneCoat resins and tinted the rivers with Black Diamond Deep Blue Sea mica pigment, I then sanded from 400 to 4000 grit, Polished and buffed because they wanted a semi gloss/honed finish not the high gloss. It’s on its way to it’s new Ocean Front home in Seaside Park, New Jersey

Michael, that is beautiful, nice ripple effect in the river – someone is going to be really happy
it looks like you filled a couple voids on the table with the same resin ?

My goodness this is really eye catching.
Very well done!

Yes, I usually fill any inclusions knots and voids with the same color resin

Very nice table and bench. The tone of the Sycamore is quite awesome. I just used stonecoat for a recent pour and was pretty happy with it.

I’ve been with Stonecoat pretty much from their beginning, They love me, I’ve tried other resins but Stonecoat is the best value price wise and it’s a proven product

Nice work, I have yet to try epoxy. I did call the Stone Coat hot line, they where helpful.
