Thanks!! The bit voids took me 3 days of pouring because they were so big! Also because the resin would seep into the wood. I spent a total of about $465 and worked out this for about 6 days. The sanding took the longest since I didn't have any access to large industrial sanders. So did everything with what you see in the pics. Recommendation for those who don't have access to industrial sanders is using a belt sander to remove the excess dried resin. I used a 80 and 100 grit paper on the belt sander. Just be very very careful because this perky cypress is so soft. I can not wait to start another one!! I will also make some other random objects too like AlanN46 did with his bowl. Thank you Mike!!!
Well I got in done just in time for my portfolio show at school. Too bad it wasn't dark enough inside the room for it to show. Doesn't matter though, I had a blast making it and learned a bunch. I have 2 friends who want me to build them one as well and so does my brother. Looks like I will get better each time. I spent about $400 to build this
Awesome job Alan! Would love Tom see a a pic of the lights off so we can see it glowing!!
Hi Mike, just one question for you about the glow power, about how many grams did you use in the table? I'm going to make one for my graduation booth table since I'm focusing on fantasy styled environments like the movie 'Avatar'. Also anything I should do if this is going to be in a lit room to get the maximum effect without it being in the dark? Thank you so much!!!
