I have been playing around with live edge epoxy river tables and making some good progress on a 4 inch thick slab of blackwalnut im making into a workbench for the reloading room. View attachment 6948289
Thanks guys! been getting a lot of PM's on the specifics, so I will post some links here.
These are a variation of Live edge river tables, a concept started ( I think) by Greg Klassen. His tables use an intricately cut piece of glass. You take a live edge slab, cut it in half, and orient the two live edges facing each other so it mimics a river. Now people are using epoxy to fill the void with various pigmented epoxy pours.
My process is a little different than others because I am using melamine to make the molds, then silicone caulk as needed to prevent leaks (no weird time consuming tape, or mold release spray). This leaves a funky edge so this becomes cut offs generally. So far I have not had any issues with product sticking so bad I cant get it out. Patience with a small pry bar does the trick.
