Simple Instructions for Creating an Epoxy River Table

This is an easy project to complete—even if you’ve never used epoxy before. Just follow these simple steps to create your own unique, beautiful river table. Click here for detailed instructions.

What You’ll Need:

  • TotalBoat River Table Project Kit (Quart Size or Gallon Size)
  • Wood to encase in epoxy
  • Wood, drill, screws, and screwdriver to build a mold
  • Buffer / polisher
  • Sanding block (optional)
  • Acetone or denatured alcohol for removing surface contamination

STEP 1 – SAND YOUR PIECE OF DECORATIVE WOOD

  • This is the piece of wood that will be sealed in epoxy, so sand it to make the epoxy stick.
  • Remove the sanding dust and do a quick solvent wipe to remove contaminants.

STEP 2 – SEAL THE WOOD & SAND IT

  • Seal the wood with one or two thin coats of mixed epoxy to prevent air bubbles when you pour the epoxy in layers.
  • Sand the cured seal coat to make the first poured layer of epoxy stick to it.

STEP 3 – BUILD THE RIVER TABLE MOLD

  • Build a mold to contain your wood and epoxy.
  • Line the inside of the mold with packing tape to prevent epoxy from leaking out.

STEP 4 – MEASURE & MIX EPOXY & HARDENER

  • Dispense 2 parts resin to 1 part hardener (by volume) into a clean mixing cup & stir to combine completely.
  • After epoxy is mixed thoroughly, add powder pigments, as desired. A little bit of pigment goes a long way!

STEP 5 – POUR MIXED EPOXY INTO THE MOLD

  • Pour each layer no more than 1/4″ thick.
  • To pop bubbles, wave a heat gun back and forth quickly, above the surface.
  • If you’re doing multiple pours, wait 2-6 hours between pours.
  • Do the next pour when the previous layer is still in the gel state.

STEP 6 – DEMOLD & SAND

  • Wait about two days for the epoxy to cure completely.
  • Remove the piece from the mold and sand from 120 down to 3000 grit.

How to calculate how much epoxy you’ll need for your project

Measure the area you will fill with epoxy to determine how much you will need.
AREA: Length x width X depth = Volume needed in cubic inches.
1 quart of mixed epoxy = 57.75 cubic inches
2 quarts of mixed epoxy = 115.5 cubic inches
3 quarts of mixed epoxy = 173.25 cubic inches
1 gallon of mixed epoxy = 231 cubic inches
