The beauty of this is that it incorporates three building techniques, with spectacular results.
Brad Rodriquez of is an accomplished woodworker who has wowed us with projects like his and . But Rodriquez is also adept at welding, and shows us how epoxy can be used to create a waterfall effect.
It all starts with a live edge slab, which he cut to shape with a circular saw and milled down with a planer. A few passes with an orbital sander smooth everything out, in preparation for the next step which is the epoxy pour.
An epoxy resin form must be built to contain the table pieces and poured epoxy. Then it's time to mix and pour. The epoxy resin takes 72 hours to cure, and during that time you can build the metal base for the table. This simple base is welded together using square bars, but you can get as creative as you want, but it's best to keep the design minimal to show off the table.
If you're looking to stretch your DIY skills, this project is a great way to put them all to use to create a one-of-a-kind piece.
