Simple Instructions for Creating a Clear, High-Gloss Table Top

This project is great for beginners, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve never used epoxy before. Just follow these simple steps to create your own crystal clear, high gloss table top. Click here for detailed instructions.

What You’ll Need:

  • TotalBoat Clear Epoxy Bar Top and Table Top Project Kit (2-Quart Size or Gallon Size)
  • Wood surface table top
  • 120-grit sandpaper
  • Clean rag
  • Acetone or denatured alcohol for removing surface contamination

STEP 1 – LEVEL YOUR TABLE TOP

  • TotalBoat TableTop Epoxy is self-leveling, but make sure your table is level before you start.
  • To catch drips, cover your work area with plastic sheeting.
TotalBoat Bar & TableTop Kit: Step 1 - Level the Table Top

STEP 2 – CLEAN & SAND THE TOP

  • It’s important to remove contaminants so your epoxy will stick properly.
  • Use a clean rag wetted with acetone to wipe the surface, then let it dry.
  • Sand with 120-grit sandpaper, vacuum up the dust, then wipe again with acetone.

STEP 3 – (OPTIONAL) ATTACH A DECORATIVE ITEM

  • Optional, attach a laminated image securely to the top. For this project, we used a coated, adhesive-backed chart.
  • Be sure the item is attached securely before applying the first flood coat.
TotalBoat Bar & TableTop Kit: Step 3 - Attach Chart or Flat Item (Optional)

STEP 4 – MEASURE & MIX EPOXY & HARDENER

  • Dispense 1 part resin to 1 part hardener (by volume) into a clean mixing cup & stir to combine completely.
  • Pour into a second clean mixing cup and stir again to mix thoroughly.

STEP 5 – APPLY A THIN SEAL COAT

  • Pour a thin seal coat to seal the surface and provide maximum adhesion for the flood coat coming next.
  • Use an epoxy spreader or heat gun to distribute the mixed epoxy evenly.
TotalBoat Bar & TableTop Kit: Step 5: Apply Seal Coat

STEP 6 – SAND THE SEAL COAT

  • Give the seal coat time to cure — wait 24 hours before sanding.
  • Sand lightly with 120 grit, then solvent wipe with acetone and let it dry.
TotalBoat Bar & TableTop Kit: Step 6 - Sand the Seal Coat

STEP 7 – TAPE THE EDGES TO MAKE A DAM

  • Apply clear tape around edges, leaving at least a 1″ rim to form a dam.
  • Add extra tape at the corners for reinforcement.

STEP 8 – APPLY THE FIRST FLOOD COAT

  • Mix enough epoxy to pour a flood coat layer no more than 1/4″ thick.
  • Pour slowly and spread with a resin spreader.
TotalBoat Bar & TableTop Kit: Step 8 - Apply the First Flood Coat

STEP 9 – (OPTIONAL) APPLY MORE FLOOD COATS

  • If you want to add more flood coats, wait 4-8 hours between each coat.
  • Again, each coat should be no thicker than 1/4″.
TotalBoat Bar & TableTop Kit: Step 9 - Optional - Apply Additional Flood Coats

STEP 10 – REMOVE THE TAPE AND APPLY THE FINAL FLOOD COAT

  • Remove the tape carefully, use 120 grit to sand down any rough edges, and solvent wipe with acetone.
  • Pour mixed epoxy for the final flood coat and spread with an epoxy spreader.
  • Wait two days for the epoxy to cure, then sand or chisel off any drips under the table, on the edge.
