I am partway through building two bedside river tables. I used a power plane to flatten the top and bottom, then sanded. The problem I’m wrestling with now is wet sanding and polishing the epoxy, which the laminated birch on either side of the epoxy river does not like.
I’d be concerned about the heat. Espresso comes out very hot, and the heat and acids in the coffee are likely to defeat any food-safe finish you’ve applied. They’d intermingle and the coffee would seep into the wood. Maybe try experimenting to see if you can get past that.
Elm is fabulous, but you can’t buy it anywhere. You’ll have to harvest it yourself or have a friend who will share.
