What is wood and resin all about? So, the art of using wood with epoxy resin is not new but with advancements in the technology and performance of the resins and the growing popularity of the products, craftspeople, artists and woodworkers are becoming more and more creative with what can be produced. But – it is not straight forward, there is a lot that has to be considered and learnt to be able to make a wood and resin product. This includes understanding the wood species that might be used, it’s moisture content, how porous it is, whether it is naturally oily (affecting how the resin will adhere). The preparation of both the wood and the mold or enclosure that is needed for the pour (resin is poured, in liquid form, into a mold or created, temporary, enclosure, that then sets hard). Choosing the correct resin type and consideration for the desired finish/transparency of the resin is also important. The environment where the product will be made must also be suitable to allow correct curing conditions etc. Plus there is much more that goes into the creation of products of this type.

What is a river table
A river table is commonly used term to describe an epoxy resin and wood table. The resin is seen as the river appearing to flow through the wood. Often the wood encloses the resin from the outer edges of the table leaving the resin on the inner section but, there are many designs, affects and ways to arrange the wood and resin with the table top or structure.
In any wood and resin product, the contrast of the natural tones and grain if the wood with clean, smooth look and feel of the resin is what jumps out and gives the product their appeal. Along with the fact that there is no other product that is identical. Each is completely unique.
Often wood with a waney edge (the natural shape of the outer edges of the wood) is used rather than square cut or machined edged wood. This again enhances the appearance and contrast between the materials.
Woods such as American black walnut, European and American oaks, cherry and many more are commonly used for resin wood products. But, really the options are endless all dependant on your desired look and affect.
There are alsoendless resin colours and tones with the added variation of the level of transparency.
With all of the options and ability to customise, these products are becoming the must have feature of any room or space. So why not enhance your living space with a wood resin product that is as unique as you?
