LAVA RIVER END TABLE

My wife decided she wanted me to create two end tables for our living room. I pondered for a while and researched using Epoxy for the tables. My wife wanted the river to replicate flowing lava. I used Copper with Pearl coloring in the Epoxy.
I bought a 6’ slab of Bocote wood. It was raw edged on both sides. I cut it four times, twice to square and two to separate it. I have included several pictures of the progress of the project.
As you can see, I used Zebra wood for the frame and legs.
I hope you enjoy looking as much as I did making it. One down and I’ll post the second one when it is finished.

Beautiful table. I am impressed. I have not pulled the trigger on epoxy. I have some mahogany curtesy of irma to play with.

I am soooo proud of making TOP3. My little shop is not like the big shops like you see on Utube, but determination and a lot more hands on work, makes you proud of a great project.

Thanks for the cuddos
