Epoxy river leaf table insert

Drew up a river shape then carved it out of some black walnut, still need to apply more finishing to shine it all up. Fun project.

Very Nice!!! I too am curious as to how you achieved that effect. My suspicion is it was carved in prior to the pouring of the resin. Whatever you did it adds a truly stunning effect.
Thanks for sharing. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I like the way you did this (using CNC)! I have seen LOTS of river tables, but most were done using live edge pieces, cut in half and the live edges forming the river banks. That is all well and good (if you don't have a CNC), but using the CNC to do the hydrography is genius!

I think the whole concept is starting to get overdone (much like barn wood "rustic" pieces) but this is an interesting take on it. Plus live edge wood is pretty expensive, and doing this with a CNC really opens up what you can do overall.

Great work!

Nice work!!
I did something similar when I built our downstairs theater room and bar. I did ours out of cherry and the river is made of small pebbles with an epoxy flood coat. It's fun to utilize the CNC in these applications.

Interesting take on it & saves a lot of money in Resin :lol: :lol: How do you intend to finish it ? Wooden legs ? Metal frame ?
How deep is the resin Layer ? Using a thinner layer like that not only reduces the amount of resin required but also the type of resin required, normal glasscast would do that I would imagine rather than requiring something like glasscast 50

Tom love that idea as well with the pebbles, although you forgot to machine a couple of fish to set in the resin above the pebbles :lol: :lol:
