Been kicking around the idea of building a wood river table. You know where you put 2 live edge boards together and pour epoxy resin in-between them to hold them together.

Just trying to figure out which Epoxy Resin to use. Any recommendations? Pros- Cons. Any guidance you can share would be appreciated.

Stone Coat casting resin is the best I’ve used. There’s a learning curve. They do have a ton of videos that really help.
STONE COAT
You might consider glass, also. Check my projects for an example. Epoxy resin is much cheaper, though.

I have never been a fan of the prices of S3 and West, which are always recommended. Talking to a furniture guy who uses a lot of this stuff, he recommended Raka, which is cheaper. Been using it for more than a year and unless I can find something that costs less and is of equal quality, there is no reason for me to switch.

Raka looks to be some pretty good stuff. Pricing is in line with Stone Coat. A bit cheaper.
