I like to incorporate some goofy pieces of wood into my work. Pour slowly you cannot imagine how fast this stuff spreads.
Use the spatula to move the resin to the outer edges.
Filling grooves in wood table top. Many of them have structural issues or voids that need to be addressed before they can be used. – squish it in the table grooves which you DID vacuum out first right – pack it down with your thumb overfilling a little – shave the groove smooth with a razor blade to clean off the excess – smooth the clay with a damp rag or fingertip if needed. Except that they are wanting the grooves filled in and have a smooth satin finish.
The groove down to wood then it easy has sanding after over filling. Its better to fill gouges with a lacquer stick that has a color that blends with the stained — not raw — wood. But there are some quite deep grooves in it.
Its solid wood and the top needs a good sand and oil so the colour will probably lighten a bit once Ive done that. Dip a putty knife into wood filler. Lay the table on its sidethen use an old soft toothbrush to clean out the grooves.
Slightly overfill the groove and then allow the putty to dry according to package directions. Those grooves can be filled in with paintable wood filler. Im trying to restore this old table.
SITUATION We have an order for a 10×5 kitchen island countertop built exactly like our table tops. When the table top is completely covered and smooth use the propane torch to pop the bubbles. After its clean and dryfill the grooves with wood fillersanded itthen stained the top again.
I had tables like this at one time and I agree the grooves collect crud and hard to clean out. Try your hardest to get smooth even coverage. When the resin dries you will see every hill and valley.
Sand well along with the table and be sure it is perfect before priming and painting. Mask the grooves off on each side and fill in with liquid plastic let harden. After painting no one will know the groves were there.
At that measurement cut a groove on the top inside face of each apron piece using a router tablesaw or biscuit joiner. The resin clear thick liquid also referred to as epoxy that was used on these live edge table projects was KraftKote resin. We use Elmers wood filler in the screw holes on the side of the frame then use wood conditioner oil based stain and a couple of coats of water based polyurethane.
Choose a stainable wood filler. Mark the locations of mounting screw pilot holes about 812 apart and drill with a depth stop to avoid boring through the tabletop. To learn more about this prod.
Use a spray cleaner if you need more cleaninglet set a few minutesthen use the bush. Then attach the clips to the apron sides and ends as shown. It takes some skill to apply the filler properly with a soldering iron and a heated.
Fill grooves and gouges in the table with the putty. Thei is used to fill things like hinge recesses in door frame and after painting you never know it was there.
