The making of a resin bar countertop

DIY tutorial

The epoxy resin is a good all-around material, but is also difficult to apply because of its proceedings specifics. The aim of the project was to provide a vintage bar with a special conutertop made of upcycled materials: reclaimed wood, steel and transparent epoxy resin.

Epoxies are sold in hardware stores, typically as a pack containing separate resin and hardener, which must be mixed immediately before use.

The resin was coloured with a little of blue colour, to slow down the aging.

The wood is now fully covered with resin.

The finish layer is specially formulated to resist scratching and provide long lasting maintenance free protection for the surface.

There are some bubbles in the resin, they make it look like water.

Through the resin the light shines as well from above as from below. #diy #resin #bar #vintage #industrial #tutorial #craft #artisans Maker: IG: @creativ_gruden Photography: Jasna Simoneta
