A large Elm occasional table squared off with a light blue translucent epoxy with a slight sapphire shimmer. The intense color and texture of the Elm contrast well with the simplicity of the epoxy, resulting in an elegant finished piece. The table is fitted with steel legs of different sizes in order to hide the legs from view. This piece is finished with mineral oil on the wood and polishing compound on the epoxy.

The translucent epoxy in this piece meant that the process had to have been carried out with extreme care. This included creating a plastic barrier to cover the uncured epoxy, as well as using a vacuum pump to ensure all imperfections such as bubbles were removed from the liquid. The limited size of the vacuum pump meant that the piece took longer to finish as I could only pour a certain amount at a time. This furthermore meant the amount of pigment used had to stay consistent to create a flawless finish.
