Epoxy and wood wall art. This was a knotted warped 2x4 I pulled off a site I was working on. I had to grind it down to expose the knot. The epoxy and pigment work nicely against the Kona wood stain on the 2x4. I need better pics though. The over head lighting gives a bad glare . #epoxy#epoxyresin#epoxyresinart#epoxywood#epoxypour#epoxyart
First attempt at butterfly inlays. Learned some valuable lessons like routing out the inlay spot short and the actual butterfly inlay a bit bigger gives me some play to really make sure it fits in tightly with minimal gaps. Any gaps I did get I filled using a guerrilla wood glue sawdust mixture (not pictured) which really worked well. I sanded it to 320 to get an idea of how the top would feel finished then ran a damp cloth across it to bring up the grain and any scratches my initial sanding missed. Next is to do a dark epoxy pour to real ensure the split in the wood is secure (it runs all the way through), then re-sand with the belt and orbit up to 800 then apply a dark walnut to the inlays and a Tung Oil over the rest for the final finish. The base will be made of alder and will be built in the next few days as time permits 🇺🇸🦅
Slab acquired at @secondusebuildingmaterials if you’re in the Tacoma/Seattle area they have locations in both and have a great selection of kiln dried slabs as well as repurposed wood and other salvaged treasures perfect for your unique projects!
@_difranco let me play with installing epoxy countertops in one of his rentals and the results were pretty fantastic. We had a good time trying to make the epoxy look like stone. This would make a really unique bar top or coffee table for sure.
EPOXY inlaid FARMHOUSE dining table using RECLAIMED BARN WOOD. This is still one of my favorite and most challenging builds to date. I learned so much on this project working with epoxy and using reclaimed wood. I just wish I had known how great @totalboat epoxy was at the time, but I plan on build another dining table using a similar technique and @totalboat will definitely be the go to. The barn wood used in this project cake from @vintagereclaimedlumber and you can see this table there if you’re in the OKC area. This wood was reclaimed from barns around Oklahoma and could range in age upwards of 100 years old. The character and history of the wood lends to its immense beauty. I can’t wait to have another go at this!! #epoxyresin#epoxy#epoxytable
Something I was not anticipating was how far the epoxy would soak into any over-poured areas. Of course it’s end grain, so I expected some. But I ended up having to take off quite a bit more than I planned to (1/4” - 3/8”) in order to get rid of all the stained areas to either side of the cracks. (photos were taken roughly halfway through flattening)
There are a couple of touch-ups to do and some newly exposed bug holes to fill. Any advice on how to avoid running into this problem again? I really don’t want to lose any more thickness if I can help it.

Trying something different and experimenting with an epoxy river design! Instead of using live edge wood I just carved out a channel in this walnut board. I didn’t mix enough so I’ll be doing one more pour tonight. Let me know what you think! #dapperwoodworks#dapper#woodworks

It's unreal because they look like there is real fish in there but its not! These guys are super talented and we LOVE their work 🧡🐠
TRASH TO TREASURE. I turned a live edge cut off into a EPOXY CUTTING BOARD. Full build video, start to finish. This is a pin oak slab with nice spalting, but was a a tad punky. I was able to stabilize these sections using the epoxy. There are concerns about using epoxy in a cutting board, but with a few common sense measures this is safe to use. Never put hot foods directly into epoxy. I soaked the board in food grade mineral oil, and then built up a layer of beeswax. This helps keep the food from coming into direct contact with the epoxy. Oak usually isn’t the best wood for a cutting board due to the open grain structure, but this slab includes a lot of end grain. The full video is up on my YouTube channel. Link in bio. •
