Step 1 – Begin by Sanding both the sides of the wood, starting from 60 up to 320 Grit until it is smooth. Getting rid of the texture or any unevenness will help adhere the Clear Packing Tape much better.
Step 2 – To seal the holes, use Clear Packing Tape at least 4 – 5 layers, getting rid of any bubbles in between. It is crucial to seal it very well to form the perfect mould for the Resin.
Step 3 – Flip the wood over and start mixing the Ultra Clear High Gloss Resin in a 3:1 ratio. Add the Haksons Pigment in Blue mixed with the Haksons Pearl Powder in White for a beautiful metallic finish. You can add more or less Blue Pigment depending on how Opaque you want the top of your table to be.
Step 4 – To get the perfect finish at the end, keep filling your holes up to 1 inch at a time ensuring you let the Resin cure for 24 hours in between.
Step 5 – Once you’ve filled the Resin carefully till the top and it’s completely cured flip the table over and release the packing tape.
Step 6 – Sand the bottom of the table, again starting from 60 Grit to 320 Grit cleaning the surface with a damp cloth in between layers checking your progress until happy with the texture and the surface is smooth.
Step 7 – Flip your tabletop over and add a coat of polish and attach the legs.
Your Resin table is now ready to use!
