Step 1: The Cutting Board Frame
First I built a wooden frame the size I wanted the cutting board to be. Then I put packing tape around the edge and bottom of the frame, so the epoxy wouldn't stick when trying to remove from the frame.
Step 2: Mixing Epoxy With Coffee Beans
I put the coffee beans in the frame, then added the epoxy and hardener, mixed together as instructed by label. I mixed the coffee beans with epoxy till like soup and spread it evenly to dry.
Step 3: Last Step
Then after it dried I poured more epoxy resin over the first layer, and let it dry. After it dried I pulled frame off and sanded it as I wanted. I was thinking of having a handle, but decided I wanted it square.
