I need some ideas on how best to create a dam around the edge of the
table. I have already put an edge on it, I used a 1/2" round over,
leaving a 3/32 edge at the top. I wish to use the pourable epoxy but I
don't want to let it run over the edges. The edge I will finish
seperately. Any Ideas?
Are you sure you need it? Have you tried? I think that most of the
products such as Mirrorcoat sold by woodcraft are designed to use the
surface tension of the piece to prevent the epoxy from running over the
edge. This assumes that the epoxy is mixed to the correct viscosity,
but I don't think it is terribly difficult. I would try it on a mock
up made of scrap.
I don't think so. Unless he uses exactly the correct amount and the top
is exactly level it will overflow.
As it does not stick to plastic, if I were to try it again, I would rim
the top with a heavy plastic coated tape.
I had a big problem with improper mixing. So now I pour part A and B
together and mix. Pour this into another container ( scraping the sides)
and mix again. Then pour it back into the first container and mix again.
You have to move quickly. And then pour on to the substrate. I then use a
propane torch to break the bubbles. Good luck, JG
I've used a one part epoxy called "POXY COAT". It is approved for food.
I originally used it on a cider press.
No need to flood, just put a coulple coats on. I've had a red oak table
outside in SE MI for 3 years no with no problems.
