What are Epoxy tables?
Epoxy tables are all made the same way, yet each one is unique and different. The tables are formed using a mold. To make the process short and to the point- you lay out your design in the mold using pieces of wood cut and shaped to your liking, placing shells, flowers, or whatever other elements you might be using for your design, after all just like the tables no two imaginations are the same so it’s really all up to you. You then pour the epoxy resin into the gaps in the mold.
