Step-by-step process of creating an epoxy table

Creating a table with epoxy resin is an exciting and creative way to showcase your woodworking skills. With the right tools and materials, you can make a beautiful table that will impress anyone who sees it. In this blog, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of creating a table with CastArt's Master Cast Epoxy for deep casting.

Materials Needed:

  • Wood (preferably hardwood)
  • Sandpaper (80-grit, 120-grit, 220-grit, 400-grit)
  • CastArt's Master Cast Epoxy for deep casting
  • Mixing cups and sticks
  • Pigments (optional)
  • Blowtorch or heat gun
  • Leveling tools (such as a bubble level)
  • Plastic sheeting or drop cloths
  • Gloves and protective eyewear

Step 1: Choose your wood and cut it to size

Select your wood, making sure it's thick enough to handle the weight of the table. Hardwood is recommended as it will hold up better over time. Cut the wood to the desired size and shape for your table.

Step 2: Sand the wood

Use sandpaper starting with an 80-grit, moving up to a 120-grit, then 220-grit, and finally 400-grit to smooth the wood's surface. This ensures a flat, even surface for the epoxy to adhere to.

Step 3: Prepare the epoxy

Mix CastArt's Master Cast Epoxy for deep casting in a mixing cup following the manufacturer's instructions. Add pigments if desired to give the epoxy color.

Step 4: Pour the epoxy

Pour the epoxy onto the wood's surface, starting at the center and spreading it outwards using a mixing stick. Use a blowtorch or heat gun to remove any air bubbles that may have formed. Allow the epoxy to cure according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Step 5: Level the epoxy

Once the epoxy is cured, use leveling tools such as a bubble level to ensure that the table is level. Sand any high spots if needed.

Step 6: Finish the table

Sand the table's surface with 400-grit sandpaper to remove any imperfections. Apply a finish such as a clear coat or oil to protect the wood and epoxy.

Creating a table with CastArt's Master Cast Epoxy for deep casting is a great way to show off your woodworking skills while adding a unique touch to your home decor. Remember to follow the manufacturer's instructions when working with epoxy, and always wear protective gear. With a little patience and creativity, you can make a stunning table that will last for years to come.
