My wife wanted a new dining room table, so I have started a new one. I started with a living edge Mountain Oak slab, that I got from my son in Alabama. The slab was 13’ long so he cut it in half for easier shipment.
As some of you know, I am retired but I have a fishing guide service, here on the Gulf Coast. I love my salt water and when I’m not fishing I’m usually in my wood shop.
I prepared my form for the table and used a slick house wrap tape to help the epoxy river not to stick. I used Ecopoxy for my river. This epoxy can be poured up to 1 3/4” in one pour, but because I wanted different objects at different levels in the river, I made 5 pours, each about 1/2” each.
As most slab tables, after finished, the slabs are not perfectly level. I am waiting 7-10 days for the epoxy to completely cure. The label says 72 hours, but I’m in no hurry..
I have made a router sled for the form, and as soon as it’s ready, I will start getting it to its final stages. I am making the leg assembly out of Dark Walnut.
Finished product, to follow.

The idea you had of the additions in the epoxy is outstanding. I look forward to seeing the finished project.

This looks like it’s going to be very nice. I like that you added things to the resin.
