What is Epoxy Furniture and What are the production steps

Quite arguably, what makes our furniture so spectacular is that we use the best of nature to create pieces that bring the outdoors in, with a touch of class that is one-of-a-kind. The way that we showcase our beautiful wood furniture is by using epoxy resin to tie it all together. It is the glue, literally, that binds our vision into a spectacular conversation piece for our customers. The best way for us to preserve the natural beauty of the live edge woods we use is by using an epoxy resin finish to attach our pieces together. And it also makes them sturdy and impervious to whatever life can throw at them. We first start with hand-picked planks of the most majestic wood we can find. Then, we take our live wood edges and we remove the bark from the outside surface. Our technicians carefully chisel the bark, meticulously using a gentle hand to preserve as much of the live edge as possible. To ensure a polished and finished look, we both plane and sand the wood to make it as smooth and flawless as possible.

 



1. Material Selection and Preparation:

The epoxy production process commences with careful material selection. Resin and hardener, the two primary components, are chosen based on the desired properties of the final product. The quality of these materials significantly influences the characteristics of the epoxy.

2.Creating a Resin Mold

Once we have our live edge wood pieces, we create a mold around them to create a design. Each of our tables is made with varying dimensions and shapes. We try to use the natural spirit of the wood, placing the pieces so that they play off of one another. Our goal is to showcase the beautiful nature of the individual planks of wood. And, ideally, create a formation of flow that appears to have no beginning or end.

Once the materials are selected, they undergo a precise formulation process. The right proportions of resin and hardener are crucial for achieving the desired balance of strength, flexibility, and curing time. Thorough mixing ensures a homogenous blend, laying the foundation for a high-quality epoxy.

3. Chemical Reaction (Curing):

The magic of epoxy happens during the chemical reaction between the resin and hardener, known as curing. This process transforms the liquid mixture into a solid, durable material. The duration of curing and the environmental conditions play a vital role in determining the final characteristics of the epoxy.

4. Quality Control and Testing:

Quality control measures are implemented at various stages to ensure the epoxy meets industry standards. Testing for strength, adhesion, and other relevant properties helps identify any inconsistencies and guarantees a reliable end product.

5. Packaging and Distribution:

After successfully passing quality control checks, the epoxy is prepared for packaging. Proper packaging is crucial to prevent contamination and ensure the epoxy's stability during transportation. The final product is then distributed to various industries where it will be utilized for its diverse applications.

 

No Two Tables We Create Are Alike

Our living edge wood tables could only be created with the use of epoxy resin. It is a material that allows us to showcase the natural live edge of our wood tables. And it also gives it a finished look that allows our tables to be fully functional and beautiful at the same time. All of our pieces are one-of-a-kind, so although the process of making epoxy resin tables is the same, no two tables we create are alike. Contact us today to either choose one of our designs or to create one of your own custom table.
