This is my first poured epoxy project. I made this for our newly renovated fire station. It is walnut plywood made like a torsion box. The bottom is 3/4” birch plywood. There is a grid work of poplar inside. Total thickness is about 2 1/4”. Decals are applied to unfinished table and then epoxy poured over top. The only credit I can take for the aluminum legs is the design. A metal company made them for me. They are 3” square tube powder coated black. I will make 2 more of these for our other stations.

Thanks. It was my first time using it. I think I paid $140 for the sheet and they said that was a discount.

As usual, you’ve outdone yourself. It’s a great job and I’m sure the guys are gonna like it. And, so will other departments when they see it. Could be more business coming your way.

You need to give your sticker maker a really big raise! Looks great!

Thanks all.
Candy, the sticker maker was the same guy that does all the decals for the fire trucks. He does a great job. Cindy couldn’t make them this big for me.
