One large slab was used to create the tops on these two tables. A metallic powder was added to the epoxy to create the effect on the river portion of the slab. Solid maple was cut down to create the frame, slat shelving, and drawer sections of the piece.
This bench was an interesting challenge! The client wanted a light colored slab that would contrast her darker floors. Luckily, a local Houston wood supplier had a great piece of maple that was suited to the task. We went with a cobalt colored epoxy and used a more opaque blue tint to allow the color to stand out against the light colored wood. Due to the 96″ length of the board, 4 trapezoid legs were fabricated to stabilize the piece and provide enough support to stand on if needed. The bench was finished with seven coats of wipe on poly.
