Wood Table Maker Inspiration – Live Edge River Tables with Epoxy Resin
What is a River Table?
An innovative way to use Wood From the Hood live edge slabs is to make the popular River Table. If you are not familiar, a traditional River Table utilizes two live edge wood slabs with an epoxy resin mix as the water, or river. The variety of character hardwood lumber and resin color lay the foundation for a designer, architect, woodworker or DIYer to build something unique.
Some prefer curvy gnarly pieces of live edge slabs integrated with pops of resin while others look for long, classic natural edge pieces – both adding color and texture while enhancing the beauty of wood.
Selecting, acclimating, cutting, flattening, straightening, squaring up, designing and creating a river table can be a long, intricate process. And, working with character woods can be intimidating and takes skill and commitment for a professional long-lasting result.
