VIDEO TUTORIAL

How to Make a Resin River Table Using GlassCast 50

In this video tutorial we use a slab of English Yew and the GlassCast 50 epoxy resin to produce a beautiful, waney-edge river table. The tutorial includes instructions for calculating the right amount of resin, mixing and pouring the resin, and then flatting, polishing and finishing to produce the final piece.

If you're interesting in making one of these gorgeous tables then it is highly recommended that you watch this video carefully and also that you download and read the accompanying Resin River Table Handbook.
