  • Epoxy table

    Hi everyone!
    I want to do the epoxy table, but my main problem is that I don't know which epoxy I need to use. I read a lot of sites and articles. There is some information about epoxy on the wiki and I think it is true. See this article - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epoxy#...ntial_flooring. There are two links in this paragraph. Is it good epoxy? Or recommend the epoxy that you used, please.

    That is my first work with epoxy (in that scale) and I want to do something like that. Filling thickness approximate 1.6-2.4 in

    I would suggest starting with exploring the West System site. I've used their products for dozens of years in the boat industry, and I don't think there's another company that has done more to put epoxy technology into the hands of consumers. They have direct contact avenues for assistance, as well as FAQ's that will likely answer any questions.
    I've learned over the years that the wrong hardener selection will cause discoloration over time, and bubbles not releasing during cure. They have a newsletter that has fascinating stories and projects by users. Good stuff.

      IF I were to do something like that table, I too would use the West Systems if at all possible. Read all you can; bubbles can cause problems for the inexperienced. Curing time, mixing tints. Find a contact person at West Systems or other company and use them as a resource person. Most of the time, they are very helpful.

        There's a place local to me that specializes in epoxy tables and this is the product they use. Their website has some pretty good information under the Support tab.

        I know there are also a ton of YouTube videos if you search for "epoxy river tables"

            Oh, that's exactly what I need. Thanks. I'll write to them, find out some details about using it with an embossing machine.
            Thanks again!

                I have done epoxy countertops - not epoxy river tables. One thing I can add is you need epoxy that is formulated for "deep pour". The countertop epoxy for example is not designed for such thick pouring. So please make sure you buy appropriate epoxy.

                Good luck and looking forward to your photos from the project.
