Gabriel, did you tape the ends with packing tape also or did you have another sort of reinforcement to prevent leakage? I haven't started my project yet but from a few tests on small pieces of wood I found the epoxy easily leaked between wood and tape but I'll try your taping method. Did you also use tape for the ends? Did you reinforce with wood to contain the epoxy? Lastly, have you had problems with leaking epoxy with you first projects and if so, any tips? Thanks
Good idea about the "damming" to top edges.. and I guess any caulking (bathroom, exterior etc) should be equivalent to Phenoseal right?
Thanks, will try that.
@jimofoz, I am testing the epoxy method on scraps of wood before I work on my "live wood" table top that has several holes (some going right through the slab) but I have been having problems with the epoxy leaking through the tape. First I tried clear cellophane packing tape. No good. Then I tried hot glueing a cardboard to the bottom. Epoxy still leaked out. I haven't tried gaffer (duct) tape yet. Is that what you are using? Do you have some tips?
