Resin table top Answered
Hello, I want to fill my beer bottle cap table in with clear resin and I am wondering how much resin i will need. I have done the math myself but I think I may be wrong. The table is 85"x36"x.25" (has trim up to the cap height) If i did the math correctly I will need 2 gallons of resin. I just want to confirm before I buy $120 worth of resin. The beer bottle caps are roughly 1"x1"x.25" and there are about 2300 of them.
so what i did for math was 85x36 = 3060 (x .25) = 765.
765 / 12 = 63.75 square feet
1 gal of resin covers 32 square feet
2 gals needed correct?
but then i tried to plug in how much space the caps take up and if i can get away with just 1 gal.
so 2300x.25 = 575 square inches
575/12 =47.91 square feet
63.75-47.91 = 15.84 square feet
which means 1 gal of resin would be plenty..... am i doing this math correct?
thanks for the help!
