Make a gorgeous DIY resin wood slice table with this easy tutorial.
Welcome to the November edition of The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest.
This month is sponsored by ETI Envirotex and we are featuring the Envirotex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish.
ETI has been in business since 1969 and were considered the resin trail blazers creating a formula known for being a superior, clear and waterproof product that has yet to be matched!
You can check out their website and products here. The theme for this month’s Contest is “Showstopping TOPS”.
I will be sharing a DIY Resin Wood Slice Table with a stunning table top.
This was my first time working with resin and I will admit I was a little nervous.
Once I read the directions and saw that everything you needed, right down to the mixing cups were provided, I relaxed and had fun with it.
Here is an easy tutorial:
DIY Resin Wood Slice Table
- Wood Slice Basswood Country Round 13.75″
- Wrought Iron Table Legs (thrift store)
- Envirotex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish
I followed the directions to a T, as it does state how important it is to have the exact measurements in order for the product to work properly.
As I wanted the grain of the wood to show, I sanded the wood top down a little first.
Next, I mixed equal parts resin and hardner and poured it slowly on the wood piece.
This was immediately after pouring it on. I went back in with a brush and filled in the sides as I wanted the bark covered as well.
It gave it a nice rich sheen. After about 15 minutes you will start to see air bubbles form.
You literally just breathe on it and they will disappear. It’s a pretty cool process! I left it to dry for about 5 hours.
This table top is so smooth and gorgeous! I love how it turned out.
Next, I attached the legs to the bottom of the wood and it was done! I absolutely love this product and have enough left over to do another project.
Wouldn’t a large console table, or coffee table be cool?
