Today, I created the high shine surface of my coffee table. The epoxy resin I chose to use for this project was the Glass Cast 3 Clear Epoxy Coating Resin from easy-composites. It's designed specifically for use on table tops and floors, so this will transform the surface into something useable. The great thing about this resin is that it self levels, and the air bubbles dissolve automatically, so it's easy to use.
I used 5kg of this resin, and I had hoped I'd ordered enough to make it flush against the metal edge, but it looks as though I may need to buy some more as it didn't quite cover the surface area.
After the resin has fully dried, I will varnish the wooden legs and stain them a darker wood colour. The table will then be finished, signed and ready for sale.
