I thought I might show you my latest project. We are in the process of building our new Cowboy Church. We wanted something different for the bath vanities. We found some 1 1/2” Mesquite slabs and started. The wood had quite a bit of termite damage, but we made lemonade out of lemons.
I used several tools to eradicate the damage, cleaned and prepped the damaged areas with a thin coat of polyurethane. This seals the wood and helps the epoxy not to bubble up as bad later on in the process.
The sinks, ( which is pictured ) are rather unique and are brass with a blueish teal tint on the outside.
I mixed up some epoxy and tried to match the sinks outside color, and filled all the cracks and areas of termite damage
After drying, i used a sled planer to make the top flat and true.
I put two coats of clear Epoxy of finish and wallaah

Hope you enjoy!
